I'm wondering if you can help me understand how I should configure CoursePress and Membership. I read the article (https://premium.wpmudev.org/blog/membership-2-coursepress-pro/) but I'm still not clear. Here is what I'm confused about.
I want to sell a course. I want the purchase of that course to make the student a member of my website "student". They get access to all the units, and at the end of 6 months (the course I'm offering is 6 months in duration), they get switched to a different membership, "alumni". I also want people to be able to register their email address to receive periodic email newsletters, but I want many of the basic pages/posts on my website to be available to guests without needing to register.
I'm unclear how to configure memberships to achieve my goals. Am I selling a membership or a course? I'm marketing it as a course that people purchase, but its also a 6 month membership, which when it expires switches a different membership type.
If I specify that the course costs 500, how do I assign the "student" membership type to someone that just purchased the course?
If you can help me understand your intended workflow, I would be most grateful.
