If you define a page as a members page and the reader is not a member or logged in then they will see a drop down with greyed out items plus a link to log in or join.
If they have logged in as a member then the pages become available plus a link to amend details and log out
If the pages are not marked as show on the menu they will not be shown. If there are members pages that are active but none are to be shown on the menu only the login and join links will appear. The other pages will appear after login.
In the event of no active members pages then the members option is not shown.
Purchasing the full package (which includes members) gives access to TDBForms which means a comprehensive enrolment form can easily be made and linked directly to either PayPal or Stripe for the collection of a subscription. We have a sample such form (which is disabled) below.
