I have a simple question
PMP works great
only issue is…

When a user logs in, they get “/dashboard”
i disabled the wordpress dashboard and they get this very empty dashboard experience below. I have attached a link to a video for reference.


I am sure that there is a way to customize this page so the wrong links do not show. This dashboard page issue is the only thing I need to resolve before launch.

Hi Shannon, just to confirm, PMPro version 2.3 should have a Login and Profile Edit feature that you should be seeing. If you have the latest update, I would recommend going through our pages documentation to enable this. You can also reach out to our technical support team in the Member Support Area, for hands-on guidance on debugging the issue you are facing.

WordPress.org says that: “The plugin Basic User Avatars hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.”

Is it safe to use?

Is there a version of this that can give the same instructions using themes that are not Memberlite? My site uses OceanWP, and I would really like some help creating member dashboards for my members.

If you have a mockup or other site with a concept you’d like to recreate we can put some notes together. Every theme and every membership site has their own combination of plugins being used, shortcodes or blocks available, and goals related to what content they want to show on their Member Dashboard. While the examples here do leverage some Memberlite features, they do also highlight the shortcodes and functions of the type of dashboard you are looking to build. There are also other block libraries for showing things like Recent Posts and more. You can comment here or reach out on our Contact Form: https://www.paidmembershipspro.com/contact/

This is a great article… But am still confused on my project.. I was trying to make a dashboard for each member that register to my website and will be able to login only to there dashboard with there username and password…without linking to them to a single dashboard.
Thanks ….please I will be happy if you could enlighten me.

Hi Pefad, if I understand you correctly, you can take a look at our User Pages Add On that allows you to create a unique page for each new Member, giving the Admin access to write customized content for each specific member.

Why post a Memberlite-powered theme on this website for PaidMembership Pro?

These theme customizations make it seem it for PaidMemberPro not another theme entirely.

I know you are trying to promote your Memberlite-powered theme however that should be promoted on that website OR Alteast show this can be done on any other theme.

I’ve been working on with this plugin for Client and I am tired of having to customize so much without proper documentation.

Thank you for your feedback. A custom member dashboard is possible for any theme, but we needed to select one as the primary used for demos. Memberlite is the theme we most strongly recommend for membership sites as we know it is fully compatible with Paid Memberships Pro. The theme is available for free download in the WordPress theme repository.

If you have a question about how you offer a similar member dashboard for another popular WP theme, please reach out by email and we will consider adding a new tutorial to our blog.


I find this tutorial pretty helpful, that’s great.

In the other hand, What happens when the user wants to modify his password or edit his profile ? I he redirected to the default WordPress dashboard ?

Thanks in advance !

WordPress has a front facing password reset page that will still work even if you are hiding the dashboard from users. If you’d like something that fits into your front end a bit more, use the Theme My Login plugin.

When I recently downloaded this plugin it says it now only works with Memberlite theme. Can you provide any alternate options?

Hi. I Don’t use the memberlite theme ad don’t want to change my current wordpress theme. Is there a code recipe to simply bring through the users avatar and name? I use themify which is pretty versatile. Thanks!

Hello, thank you very much for this post, but I have one question:
How could I build a member dashboard like that and still have the option to access some admin links from that page, for instance, be able to edit posts or pages???

Thank you!!!

Other themes may not use the same names/ideas for their color schemes or have a way to change them via the customizer. But if they do, you can copy/paste the color codes into the other theme’s settings.
