I have a very straight forward site, 3 levels of users - so have set up 3 Access Levels and 3 Subscription plans - one for each level.
Upon registration, they are directed to the Welcome page - where they see a message thanking them for joining - and then a link to the Download page - which then has 3 chunks of code on it - wrapped by the various shortcodes for each level, with closing shortcode tags too.
1. How do I prevent the 'Welcome' page from being found by anyone trawling the site - i.e. non-registered users?
2. is there any functionality to users for requesting their password be emailed to them?
3. what is the normal procedure for providing a login screen for previously registered users? - As part of my Menu system on the website - I provide a 'Client Login' option which takes them to the "My Account" page - which is completely blank - unless they have logged in to the /wp-admin area with their account credentials - surely we don't send them to the back end to log into the front end?
4. if a user is registered as a level 3 user - the page that has the download links on it - they get to see the [level1] and [level2] messages as well - is this normal?
(Phew - more questions soon - this is enough for now - after reading the manual 4 times in 6 days, Im a tad confused.)
