1 step registration


Is it possible to just have a 1 step registration process?

We only have one membership level that is free so we dont require a Pay Pal button. Could the registration form automatically sign people up to our one membership level?

Thanks for your help.

    Unfortunately it’s not possible to provide just one step.

    As Membership uses the default WordPress user system it must allow users to create an account before it can apply the correct subscription.

    That means having a first step where the user registration takes place and a second where the subscription is set up.

    Any ideas how we can achieve this. or avoid the registration option?

    If the ‘Enable incomplete signup accounts’ is ticked, then we can bypass the need for the user to subscribe.

    We have 4 subscriptions, but only 1 offered to signup.


    Visitor = non-reg

    Member = registered (free)

    Author = Private

    Mod = Private

    So ideally you enter your registration details on the popup and create a user. You are then auto directed to the Welcome screen without being asked to register (because that is automatic with ‘Enable incomplete signup accounts’.

    So, to the point. What is the best way to circumvent the redundant stage where it asks you to register.

    Thanks in advance
