Creating a Membership Site

Updated on 29 Sep 2023

Membership sites are built on the same platform as your Simplero site. So they'll be brand-consistent, modern, and beautiful. They even use the same page editor as your main site.

Membership sites feature a blog, a forum, a member directory, and Engagement badges. Membership sites also 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 be able to edit its Settings (Pages tab) and access the Pages Editor on the top right corner.

Site Configure Settings

Navigate to the Configure tab:

There are some settings specific to the site that you might want to know a bit more in-depth before launching your new site:

Using a Custom Domain

If you own a domain and would like to link it to your site, click on "+Add domain".

*If you haven't set up your domain on your Account Settings, you might need to do so following the instructions on our guide on utilizing a custom domain. 

After logout page

Closed Membership sites (see Access section below) would only allow access to contacts via log-in.

This also means they will be able to log out using the profile dropdown on the top right corner of your Site. 

By default, we will redirect the end-user to your Main Site, unless you add a URL on the "Redirect after logout" Advanced settings :)


Access to Your Membership Site

You can make your membership site publicly available or control access.

If private, you'll be able to customize a message on the login screen at the Advanced Settings at the bottom.

Member Directory

Scroll down to the Community features section:

If you disable the Member directory, your contacts won't be able to tag other members on any comments on this site.

When enabled, you will be able to add it as a section on your Page Editor Menu:

And this is how it will look like on your Site when it goes live:

Adding Sign-up Forms

Using this section, you can add a sign-up form as a page within your membership site. Simply select the Add signup form button, and you can choose any of the sign-up forms you have created within your Simplero account. 

Email Settings

This will only apply when sending broadcasts to members of this site. If empty, we will default to your Account Settings :)

Meta Data

Allow showing SEO data when sharing a closed site URL in Facebook by checking the box at the bottom of this section.

Once it’s been enabled, navigate to the home page settings on the site editor to add a title, description, and an image to show when sharing the closed site URL on Facebook.

Launch your Site

Once you are ready to Launch your new Site, click on "Launch site now" from any of the tabs.

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.
