    Hi Rosi,

    Thank you for your question.

    I checked your site and it seems you have protected your whole website including home page of your site from non logged in users which seems to occur due to misconfigurations.

    Would you mind if I logged in to your site and did some testing by checking the settings on your site? This might help get to the bottom of this faster. If this is ok, just grant me temporary admin access to your site by clicking “Grant Access” button in the WPMU DEV Dashboard Settings as described on the following page and reply on this thread after granting it?

    Hello @rose

    I hope you are well today.

    Please check course pages now. I have created a level called “Visitors”. Then from Membership > Options > General > Stranger level access and set it to visitors. All the visitors are considered of this level.

    Then from URL group section, I have created group called course, and added a regular expression for courses in that group.

    Now, Membership > Access Level > Edit Visitor level > Add that URL groups in positive rule.

    You need to do the same for quizes too.

    For other pages, you can simple add pages in the positive rule of Visitor level to give access to the visitors.

    Hope it helps :slight_smile: Please feel free to ask more question if you have any.

    Cheers

    Hi Ash –

    Thank you but the content is still showing up as protected when the people in the class try to look at the materials.

    Also, is it possible to have the quizzes and content only available to people who are enrolled in a course?

    Best wishes,

    Rosi

    Hi there!

    Is there any chance there is a time estimate on how long you think it will take to settle? I have clients who are waiting and I would like to let them know, thank you! If there is a guide I can read as well, so that I may understand how to do this on my own, I would be appreciative!

    Best,

    Hello @rose

    Please check now. I have added the enrollment-process page in URL groups. You have to add everything in positive rule that you want to open for free level users.

    We have some tutorial on membership pro, you can take a look:

    Also, is it possible to have the quizzes and content only available to people who are enrolled in a course?

    This is not possible I am afraid, it will need a fair amount of custom code to customize. Also, if you need to customise this then you can post a job in our job board where you can hire a developer to assist further: https://premium.wpmudev.org/wpmu-jobs/ Please note that, no WPMU official staff is available in the job board.

    Is there any chance there is a time estimate on how long you think it will take to settle?

    In fact, we process all the threads based on a queue. So, sometimes you will need to wait some time.

    Cheers
