Four membership levels:

Public – These are any anonymous user of the website.

Registered – These are users that have an account but are not currently paying for membership. This may be because they have never paid for membership or it may be that their membership has expired. In either case they receive the same access.

Members – These are users who are actively supporting the organization. Their memberships may be honorary or gifts or part of the position that they hold but generally they are paid memberships.

Administrative – These are the select few members within the organization that have special access / capabilities specifically with the website. At the time of writing this, that only includes the website support staff but it can expand to cover anyone with content curation responsibilities.

Controlling Access

The controlling of page access is done in the aMember Protection settings below. Clicking “Protection Enabled” will turn on protection and then there are some options you can apply in terms of what the user sees when they don’t have access.

Public – Nothing special needs to be done to make content viewable to the public. That is the default so no example is provided.

Registered – Click here to go to a page that should only be accessible to Registered users who are logged in.

Members – Click here to go to a page that should only be accessible to users with active memberships who are logged in.

Administrative – Click here to go to a page that should only be accessible to Admins who are logged in.
