Any Tips For Launching A New Membership Site?

Launching a membership site can mean a lot of questions need answering along the way.

How much do I charge?

Should I include a forum?

Are affiliates a good idea?

This is just the tip of the discussion Iceberg 🙂

This forum thread is “recommended reading” for everyone who is working towards the launch of a site. The conversation between Insiders is packed full of helpful advice and will make you think through the process of running a membership site.

That being said, there are some solid tips included that will also benefit those who have already launched.

Get in on the action here.


Can An Old Post Be Forced As “Front Page” Post?

Have you ever created a post and wanted it to remain on your Home Page even after posting NEW content?

Typically, when you post a new piece of content, the previous article gets bumped down a spot.

But there are times when an announcement or some important information needs to be “pinned” to the front of your membership site.

What’s the best way to make this happen?

This forum thread involved two Insiders discussing that very subject.

Find out how you can accomplish this with a few quick and easy steps.


Can I Change A Member’s USERNAME?

WordPress doesn’t allow for a username to be changed once it has been created.

This means your members have to stick with the same username they select for the duration of their membership.

But, what about those times when a member wants or needs to change the username they have chosen? This happens from time to time and it’s good to know what your options are.

We recommend checking out some possible solutions in this forum thread as there are some “if this happens, then this must happen…” scenarios to deal with.
