when i used paid membership plugin .after installation my site is not working .even it block my URL .after sitting when i refersh my website page .there is showing no internet while my other sites are working properly .

Added the short code provided above. Please see screenshot: https://paste.pics/5LW5A

There is a weird “Log-In” text at the button of the page. I believe that’s a link if the user already has an account. Is there a way to put that at the bottom of the form as “Already have an account? Click here to log-in.”

Hi Ted,

The “signup module” for Register helper is no longer supported but Register Helper in itself is still very much being used. Deleting the Add On could very well remove any custom fields you have on your site so be wary.

“which embeds a membership signup form anywhere on your site”

That doesn’t seem correct. It just puts a button on the page which redirects back to the normal registration page. Is it possible to use that shortcode to embed the actual form on a custom page – and include the payment forms?

You can also add the [pmpro_checkout] shortcode anywhere you want to if you want the entire checkout form. In that case, it will submit to the same page.

Some interesting things might happen if you put the entire checkout page into a sidebar (hard to account for compatibility with whatever else is on the page).

The signup shortcode is meant for streamlined sign ups to gather free users and emails and in some cases to act as a kind of 2 part sign up.

Hope this helps.

Yes i have billing address and T&Cs required for paid members in the checkout stage but this isn’t needed on free level. I asked in support, however they needed FTP but I don’t have access as i have web developers who set up the site.

[pmpro_signup button="Unlock this Post Now!" level="1" login="1" redirect="referrer"]. I use this code you have supplied for a free membership level.

you state “If the level is free, submitting the form will register the user and redirect them to the Membership Confirmation page.” however, the shirt code redirects to my checkout page, how can i chafe it to redirect to the confirmation page.


“Great for sites with one free level who want to override the default process” — That’s a great headline but unfortunately it doesn’t appear to be very accurate.

I added the “one step form” to my site. When I fill it out, I am redirected and made to manually select the only membership level available (free). Then I’m redirected to a full form to fill out yet again — and my username and password that I’ve already selected aren’t even pre-filled for me so now I have to type it all in again.

What exactly are we overriding here? I’m asking because at first glance, we’ve actually added ANOTHER step to the registration process instead of “overriding the default process”.

This is what “overriding the default process” meant to me: I expected to have a new form that once “submit” was clicked, a new user was registered at my “free level” (my only level) and they would have bypassed the three-click-and-fill-out-a-form Registration process.

Clearly I’m missing something. Please explain what benefit this Register Helper Add On is supposed to provide? As I said, all I can see is it’s adding more work for the user and not less.


Sorry this isn’t working for you. I’ll try to test the default setup again, but in the meantime are you using other PMPro addons or otherwise requiring other fields at checkout? If you post to the member forums, I can get more information about your setup and try to help you out.
