Creating a Membership Site

Membership sites are built on the same platform as the Simplero sites, and thus offer a brand-consistent, modern and – dare I say – gorgeous look for your member sites, with the advanced page editor built right in as you're used to from your main site.

Membership sites feature not only a blog, but also a forum and member directory. Membership sites take on a structured approach to the member site, which makes a lot of exciting things possible. The big part of this is that member sites feature Courses with a structured curriculum and support for quizzes as part of the lesson plan.

Creating a Membership Site

  1. Select Content from your Simplero Dashboard
  2. In the Membership sites tab, click the + Create new membership site button in the upper right corner

  3. Complete the fields for your site and click the Create site button to save

  4. Once your site is created you will want to go back to the Configure tab and select the link to "Launch" the site. 

Connecting a Membership Site to a Product or a List

  1. Select Sales from your Simplero Dashboard
  2. In the Products tab, select the product you want to add to a membership site
  3. Select the Content tab
  4. In the Courses & Sites section, check the box next to the membership site that you want to grant access to via the product

  5. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click the Save changes button

Access Control of your Membership Site

You can set your membership site to be viewable in 3 ways.


  1. Closed, only access to people who have been granted access
    • This option requires that the membership site is connected to a product or list in the content tab.
  2. Open to everyone, but requires people to log in with their Simplero ID
    • With this option, the user would need to be on your list or purchase that product from you to gain access and still require them to register with Simplero but not your list. 
  3. Open to everyone without login
    • This options only require them to have the URL so you can share it publicly. 

Sign-up Forms

Using this section you are able to add a signup form as a page within your membership site. Simple select the add signup form button and you can choose any of the sign-up forms you have created within your Simplero.
