When it comes to a membership site, apart from having admin and subscriber users, you might also need to add users with editor and author roles. Editors, for example can help you with managing content on the site and they don’t need to be on the CRM. In this short guide, you’ll learn how you can add editor, author, contributor users to your WordPress site running on Memberium.
With mobile web browsing becoming the main way people interact with your site, it’s important to have a way for your users to quickly log in. Memberium works with third-party plugins to provide a way for your users to log in using their Facebook accounts. In this guide, we’ll cover all the steps needed to get this implemented today!
Memberium’s integration with LifterLMS makes it easy to protect and sell courses through Infusionsoft. LifterLMS does have built-in course protection, but it’s lack of integration with Infusionsoft makes it impossible to sell the course and automatically grant access to it using Infusionsoft. That’s where Memberium comes in.
With Memberium, you can easily sync users that are created through WooCommerce to Infusionsoft. Here’s a detailed tutorial on how you can do this.
This guide was made to show you how to protect your downloadable content using Memberium and Amazon S3. The benefit of this setup includes expiring links so members can’t share download links with non-members and a possible performance increase by offloading file storage to S3 rather than your WordPress site.
What You’ll Need
- Amazon S3 Account
- Memberium Plugin
Getting Your S3 Access Keys
The video below will show you how to generate and access your Amazon S3 Access and Secret keys.
Setting File Permissions
Below you’ll see a demonstration of how to make sure your S3 files aren’t public. The key is to remove all permissions for the “Everyone” group. You’ll also want note down the path to the file. In my example, the bucket is ‘lesson523’ and the file name is ‘lesson1.pdf’
In WordPress, navigate to Memberium>>Remote Files and fill in the details we just acquired. The Profile name will be used in Memberium shortcodes to reference back to this S3 account. The Default Host is usually “s3.amazonaws.com” and the Expiration can be set to 3. The other details will be specific to your S3 account.
Setting up Shortcodes:
We have various shortcodes that hook into the S3 integration, but for this guide, we’re focusing on downloads so we’ll use the [memb_s3_link] shortcode.
Example linking to the file shown in the second step:
<a [memb_s3_link htmlattr=href profile=”test” object=”lesson1.pdf”] > Download Lesson 1 </a>
You can add other HTML attributes to the text or even use an image that links to the file. Once the user clicks on that link, the expiration countdown will start. If you chose 3, as was recommended above, then after 3 seconds the link will stop working so if it was shared it would have expired before the recipient would be able to access it.
