I am trying to set up a simple process where, when a new member signs up and provides their details, they are then taken to Paypal to make their payment and then reverted back to my site.
I have two Access levels and two two Subscriptions set up. One is named Visitors and is obviously as the title says. The other is for Members.
When a visitor clicks to sign up, they are taken to a page with the login details to provide.
First problem. The 'Enter your Details' form asks for username [fine], email [fine], and also they are asked to provide a password and pw confirmation. I would prefer that they are do not have the option to set their own password.
Second problem. Underneath this, is another prompt asking for a username again. [I think this may be from BuddyPress but cannot find a method of removing it.]
Ideally, I would like new users to provide a username, email, and location - nothing more. And then when they have signed up, an automated password email is sent to them.
Third problem. When a new user signs up and fills in the details to become a member, instead of being taken to a 'Subscribe' button, all of which is set up in the payment gateway, they receive a message stating the following:
You currently have a subscription for the Paying members subscription. If you wish to sign up a different subscription then you can do below
Underneath this is the 'visitors' subscribe button on display, but no members subscribe button is to be seen.
The newly signed up user receives notification by email of their already known username and password and can then sign in - without making a payment.
I have literally spent days and nights trying to set this up correctly, but all to reach only this point as described above.
Can anyone help me out with this please? I will gladly provide access to the site if you think you can sort it out.
Thank you for taking the time to read all of this message.
