I've had problems setting this product up and hope you can

Hi,
I've had problems setting this product up and hope you can help me please.

Registration Page http://www.confidenthorserider.co.uk/registration/
Already Have a User Account? (link) - links to the Wordpress core login screen, but I want a user to login via a webpage. How can I achieve this?

Content protection
All I want to do is protect specific blogs and pages, but adding these to the Membership > Options doesn't seem to make them exclusive.
I also want a specific menu to appear int he sidebar when a member is logged in - again, I can't seem to make this happen.

Page Styles
There seems to be no means to style pages that have you shortcodes on them, such as the /registration page. How is styling achieved.

Would there be any chance of asking you to log in to help me set this up. Not sure why I've been 'banging my head against the wall with this'!?

Rgds,
Simon

    Simon,

    For login page, it uses the wordpress login page and then redirects where it should for each user. You as admin will go to dashboard, but subscriber will go where the plugin selection is for the subscriber destination.

    You might like this article on customizing the login page: https://premium.wpmudev.org/blog/customize-wordpress-login/

    You could also put a redirect in from yoursite.com/login to yoursite.com/wp-login.php, that might make things somewhat more to your liking.

    The way to protect your content is with the settings under Access Levels. Presumably, you've been following the manual and have a level set up for general (non-logged in) site visitors. In that level's settings, go into Negative Rules and protect either category, tag, more tag, etc. as appropriate for what you want to restrict access to.

    I usually will use a different browser as my "not logged in" example and flip back and forth to check things.

    For page styles, I use the inspect element developer tool in chrome or firefox to pick off the name of the css element I want to style and then add it to my child theme stylesheet so I don't lose the changes when the theme gets updated.

    Hope this helps.

    hiya

    thanks for posting.

    @16wells gave some good advice there, have a read through & if you need any further assistance, please ask.

    the protected content pages in your case would be easier setting up with Negative rules for each access level.

    there's a good tutorial here, check out the video too. https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/membership/#usage

    also on the page is the download link to a PDF manual if you haven't read it already.

    hope this helps.

    thanks
