You can set the different pages to be viewable by different products. There are a few ways to do this.

  5. Click the Course settings button on the upper right corner

    • In Published area - set it to Published

One Membership Site for multiple classes with no change in content

One Site for Multiple Classes is an option for when you allow commenting that is only viewable by the class.

Do you have the commenting turned on on your pages but only want it viewable by the class that is commenting and not future or past classes?

To do this you will duplicate the content pages that you allow commenting on to the same site and make those new pages viewable only by the new course or auto-publish them to only the new class. 

  1. Select Content from your Simplero Dashboard
  2. In the Membership sites, select the site 
  3. Select the Courses tab
  4. Locate and select the Course you want to control access to

    Courses_settings
  5. In the upper right-hand corner of the course page, click the Duplicate to... button and select This site from the drop-down list

    Duplicate_to_button_for_courses_in_membership_site
  6. You will now see the page listed with the word Copy in front of the title

    Duplicate_copy_of_the_course
  7. Re-title it accordingly in the settings of the page and select the publishing option of your choice
    • Select this Copy course and click on the Course settings button on the upper right corner

      Course_settings_for_the_copy_course


One Membership Site Multiple Classes with Slight content variations for each class.

  • First, you are going to set up a parent page for each class within your membership site.
  • Then you will create subpages under that parent page for their content, blog, or forum. 
  • Note: Once you have created these pages for one course you can duplicate the pages again for each additional course quickly by selecting the parenting page and then selecting duplicate in the upper right-hand corner. 
  • When you structure your content, so that each class has parent page of its own, and then their modules as subpages, you only have to copy the parent page, and the subpages will come along. You can then edit the content of the pages to fit the current class
  • If you do a lot of classes, you might want to order the pages, so you have the most recent one on top, you can use the reorder function for that, and just grab and drag the parent page to where you want it to be
  • Your participants will always only see the specific pages they have been given access to, so don't worry if the site looks a bit overcrowded when you look at it
  • If you want to see it from their point of view, you will need to use an incognito or different browser and make a freebie purchase of the product using an email address not associated with your Simplero ID.
