1. Removing the default login/signup button and adding a popup link instead.
Once you add the Install Code for MemberSpace onto your website, you'll see a black button appear in the bottom right hand corner that says "Login/Signup". If you do not want a login/signup option on each page of your site, you can disable this button and add the login/signup either as part of your main navigation menu, or as a link elsewhere on your site.
First, to remove the default login/signup button, go to "Customize", "Sign Up Experience", and uncheck the first option you see, "Display Login/Sign Up Button". Then be sure to scroll down and click "Save Your Changes". You should no longer see this login/signup button on your site.
Next, to add your Login/Signup link elsewhere on your site, you'll want to decide if you'd like to use a general login/signup or a plan-specific sign up link. If you are adding the link to your main navigation menu, usually a general sign up link will be the preferred choice, as it gives access to any of your public plans. You can find the general login/signup link by going to "Customize", "Install Options":
Then scroll down to "Login & Signup Popup". The first option on this page will show the "login & signup" option first, and the second link will show just the "sign up" option first:
If you have a sales page detailing each member plan, often times a plan-specific sign up link will be a good choice, so that the member can read a summary of the plan and then sign up for that plan directly without seeing a dropdown menu of other plan options. To find this plan-specific link, you can go to "member plans", click "sign up link", and "copy", next to the plan link you'd like to use. You can then place this in a button, image, or link on your page.
2. Editing Member Emails
Your members will receive emails from your membership site when they complete certain actions, such as signing up, making a payment, or when their plan is expiring. You have the ability to edit and personalize the emails they receive. To find the emails, log into your MemberSpace backend and go to "Customize".
Then choose "Member Emails".
You can edit any of the emails you see here by clicking on that specific email.
You can then edit the text, and then click "Save Now."
We also recommend trying out the "Send a Test Email to Yourself" button (right above the "Save Now" button) to see how your edited email will display to your members!
The most popular emails to edit are the "Welcome Email" and the "Successful Charge Receipt Email". The Welcome email is sent when your members first join one of your plans, as a confirmation that they're joined successfully. You also have the ability to add a separate Welcome Email for each of your members plans.
Some site owners will choose to include more detailed information about what the member receives as part of the membership. The Successful Charge Receipt email will be sent each time your member makes a payment.
3. Change Look & Feel (including color of the buttons)
The "Look & Feel" section allows you to change the color and style of the signup/login form and buttons.
To find the "Look & Feel" section, log into your MemberSpace backend, go to "Customize", "Look & Feel".
On this page you'll see a text box at the top of the page; this is where you'll place any CSS that you choose to change the styling. You can feel free to write your own if you're comfortable doing so, but we also provide a list of pre-written CSS for you to use. Scroll down to see the list of options for changing the style, and then click "copy" for the one you'd like to use. Paste it in the text box above and click "Save Changes."
You can also add hex codes to the pre-written CSS for a specific color to match your exact design instead of the generic colors we have listed.
If you copy the code to change the color of the login button, you'll see this:
You can then paste that code in the box at the top of the page like this:
And if instead of making that button "green", let's say you'd like to get more specific and use the hex code for forest green, #228b22. You can add that hex code instead of the word "green". So it would then look like this:
Then click "Save Changes"!
4. White-labeling your domain
MemberSpace uses something called 3rd party cookies to recognize when your members are logged into your website (and therefore grant them access to your pages/content). However, not all browsers treat 3rd party cookies the same and occasionally that can cause login issues for members. The best way to prevent this is to white-label your MemberSpace domain. Here is an article showing you how to do this.
