Make signup a breeze, especially for your free membership levels, by using the [pmpro_signup] shortcode. Use shortcode attributes to set the level ID, which fields to display (you can even sign up members by only asking for an email address!), and more.
Shortcode attributes allow you to show only certain signup fields, optionally generate a username and/or password, automatically log the member in and redirect them to the referrer or a specified page.
Jason just coded up a new shortcode feature for a support customer and we wanted to share it—hooray open source! It’s a little tricky to explain, but once you wrap your brain around the features, you’ll begin to think of interesting ways to apply it to your membership site.
The shortcode is primarily useful for sites that offer free trials and want to show (or hide) content to users who are on the trial vs. those that are full paying members.
