Creating Your Membership Site
EverWeb Membership Sites has two main components that you need to set up for your Membership Site: The first is the backend that is used to store all the details of your membership site, such as member details, membership levels, coupons, and payment methods. All of these features are managed through your EverWeb Client Area. It’s recommended that you set up the backend first. It’s straightforward to do just by following the list of items to complete in the Membership Sites section of the Client Area.

The second component required for setting up your membership site is building its pages within EverWeb itself. This can be as simple. or as complex. as needed. The pages you develop are where your members and subscribers will subscribe to your membership site, login, manage their profile, manage their payments, manage their membership levels and so on. If you already have an EverWeb designed website, it’s recommended that you create a directory specifically for your membership site within your Project file. This will make it easier to manage and administer the EverWeb side of your Membership Site. If you use all of the features of Membership Sites could add 20 or more pages to your site.

Once you have completed both back and front ends of your Membership Site and tested it, you’re ready for launch!
