Forum Focus 411

We have all received one at some point.

A message from an online provider referencing an upcoming change and how it may or may not affect us.

These types of communications are common but they can still cause a reaction of uncertainty each time we see one.

The first question we have is usually… “Does this affect me?”

The question coming in a close second is often… “What do I have to do?”

A similar situation gets the focus in this edition of Forum Focus.

How many apps are on your phone right now?

It is probably difficult to come up with an exact number off the top of your head. Even coming up with an accurate estimate is likely a bit tricky.

But it’s safe to say you have your fair share of useful apps doing their jobs on your mobile device.

The key term being “mobile”.

We all find ourselves with the ability and option to do more and get more accomplished when away from home base.

How do your members login?

WordPress includes a number of built-in options for user login and there are additional plugins to provide more ways for members to get logged in.

The WishList Member plugin has a number of it’s own login features including a widget and a merge code that will both display a login form.

Are all of these methods connected to the same functionality?

What happens if someone has trouble logging in?

Those are good questions and we touch on them in this edition of Forum Focus.

An Insider re-started this thread to dig into the topic a bit more.

They are trying to find a way to prevent two people from logging in with the same account. But it’s a bit more specific than that.

The goal is to prevent two people from logging in with the same account at the same time.

It’s a small difference, but one that should be considered.

Do you have members sharing their login info?

Member access is removed if that member decides to cancel or if their payment fails.

That is a very common scenario and usually how it all works for many membership sites.

At least, that is how it is supposed to work. So what happens if you have your site set up to function in this manner and it doesn’t seem to want to cooperate?

That is the type of situation an Insider describes in this forum thread and the conversation goes from there.

An extra set of hands can be very helpful.

This is something many membership site owners realize after working on their site for a while. There rarely seems to be enough hours in the day and they have to decide which tasks and projects receive their attention and which ones need to wait.

Some tasks may get consistently neglected as time keeps rolling along and that “To Do” list doesn’t get any shorter. In fact, the opposite seems to happen on a regular basis.

So how can you check more things off that list and accomplish more?

An Insider is looking for suggestions.

This older forum thread shifted gears a bit based on a recent update posted by an Insider.

The original discussion talked about email broadcasts and included some interesting bits regarding active and inactive members. It’s worth a look if you haven’t read it yet.

But we are more focused on the topic of searching and exporting a list of cancelled members.

Is there a way to search for a very specific group of members?

If so, can you export that list?

You have likely guessed this it at least partially possible.

Let’s get into it a bit more.

Do you ever want to delay when a selection of your members can access some of your new content?

You may want to deliver a portion of your course that only applies to existing members. That content will be valuable to the established members but that same content may be confusing to new members who haven’t run through the previous materials.

This forum thread touches on a method that could help in a similar scenario as described above.

Lets find out more.
