Member Log-In

Ticket by yogaherring | May 10, 2014 | Question
  • Hi Folks, We are almost ready to purchase and publish the website we have been working on.  The "For Members" tab and all its sub tabs needs to be viewed by members only.  I have created the main tab " For Members" as "require member site login".  All the contacts are loaded and set as preapproved.  The "member log-in button" is on the main tab "For Members".  My thinking was that a member can click on the main tab, sign-in once and then see the sub tabs.  A visitor who clicks on "For Members" would not be able to log-in and therefore not be able to see all the remaining sub tabs.  Is that how it will work "live".  Where do I set the password to log-in?  The page setting I chose was "restrict to site members".  But if a member of our group clicks on the "members only" page they will need to log-in and the app is asking for a password.  I do not see where to set that up.  Thank you for your assistance.  Carol Herring

    You can add a member login button to your site so that your visitors can sign up or login to your site and access your members-only pages.


    To add a member login button to your site:


    1. From the left side of the Editor, click the Add icon.
    2. From Add, click Apps.
    3. From Apps, click Member Login Button.
    4. Drag the Member Login Button into place.


    From Settings, you can click "Show on all pages" to add this button to all of your site's pages.


    A member login button is added to your site.


    To set which of your pages are members-only and for more information about members-only pages, click here.


    In order to have the "sub tabs" you'll need to create hidden pages which you can then link with buttons.


    To hide a page from your navigation menu: From the left side of the Editor, click the Pages icon > click the Settings wheel for the relevant page > in the Settings and SEO window, check the box next to Hide from menu > click Done.

    Note: Your site visitors will be unable to access hidden pages unless you link to them.

    For more information about pages, please click here or watch the video below.

    Hi Noa,  Please look at the "For Members" tab.  I do have the member log-in button already set up.  My questions are:


    I have my garden club members loaded in contacts.  Is there anyway to have that list automatically populate the site members or does each individual have to log-in through the member log-in button to be approved?  Also, when the sign-up for the first time, they should use the email I entered in contacts  and then they each have their own password to remember?  If so, what if they forget their password?  How do I reset it for them?

    I only have the Member Log-In on the "For Members" main tab, do I have to have a log-in on the "Event Sign-up, Committees, etc., tabs too or does have the log-in button on the main tab control the security on the tabs connected to it?

    Hey Carol,

    Yes, you should protect all the pages under the 'For members' tab so only the member will be able to see those pages. 

    Your site members can retrieve their own passwords by clicking on the Forgot your password? link at the bottom of the site members login screen. An email will be sent to the user with a link. When the user clicks the link, the user will be directed to the site and prompted to enter a new password.

    For more information about this feature click here.

    Any of your site visitors will be able to sign up and login to your site automatically when you add a Member Login Button to your site. You can set up your Member Login Button to require pre-approval from the My Account section of


    To require pre-approval for your site members:

    1. Sign into
    2. From the top menu, click My Account.
    3. Next to your site, click Manage & Edit Site.
    4. From the menu on the left of the page that opens, click My Contacts.
    5. From My Contacts, from the list on the left, roll over Site Members and click the settings gear.

    6. From Settings, click the radio dial next to Approval per individual.
    7. Click OK.

    You can approve or deny the new member from My Contacts by clicking Requests under Site Members.

    Ok, just confirming the following when the website it live:

    when a user clicks "For Members" page they will only see the member login and ONLY after they have logged in they will see the slide show that is currently on that page.  If that is not correct, please let me know.  If it is correct, I could hide the sub pages and then just put links on the "For Members" page above the slide show so that members only have to sign in once.  This sound feasible?

    Hi Carol,


    Currently, only the main page "For members" requires password and login (that means Members won't be able its content unless they login).

    In case you wish to set all the "For members" subpages as restricted to site member only, you should:

    1. From the left side of the Editor, click the page icon to open Pages.
    2. From Pages, next to the page that you are setting as members-only, click the settings icon.
    3. From Settings and SEO, checkmark the box next to Protect Page.

    4. From Protect Page, click Require Site Member Login.

    5. Repeat Steps 2-4 for each of your members-only pages.
    6. Click OK and then click Done.

    Your members-only pages are protected.


    Have a great day,

    Yes, visitors will click the "For Members" menu button and will get a login pop-up window. Only after logging in they will be able to see its content (including the gallery).
