membership & FB login & supporter

JoblessInMi.com is a site a friend and I conceived just for fun, and it gives me a place to test stuff out.
I'm beta testing membership 2.1 beta 2, supporter 3.0 and the ultimate FB plugin. I have not worked with any previous versions of these plugins, so I'm giving you a fresh set of newbie eyes to help with the testing.

I do not have the supporter plugin activated/settings yet.

I noticed that when people click on the "join my quest" button in the theme appearances>welcome msg, they end up at http://joblessinmi.com/wp-signup.php which has a short registration form and a FB button. If they click on the FB login in the sidebar of the home page (or the one on the wp-signup.php), it opens a FB app permissions window. And when they click on the "Sign Up" page at http://joblessinmi.com/sign-up/ which I created per the membership instructions.

So my questions are:
1. Wouldn't this seem just a little bit confusing for the user? To have 3 possible places to sign up? Wouldn't it better to have it all on one page? And is there something I should be doing to make it less confusing, few options, one place for it all?

2. If people sign up via FB, what are they getting? the free basic membership? a separate FB login excluding the basic membership? Again, seems like they should be integrated so as to not confuse the user who might say, "why are you asking me to sign up when I already signed up via FB"?

3. How come admin sees the http://joblessinmi.com/sign-up/upgrade-your-account/ (no-access-here-matey) page. Is there a way to grant the admin and individual users a supporter account without having to pay for it?

4. In membership, I created 2 membership levels, basic and supporter. Where do I enter the PayPal info in order to process supporter level upgrades?

5. I notice at http://joblessinmi.com/sign-up/ there are no subscription levels listed to choose from.

    Hi y3kgeek,

    Most of your questions are related and deal with integration between Membership and Facebook Ultimate, which does not exist at this point.

    Basically, Membership takes over the registration process while Facebook Ultimate ties into the existing WordPress registration process. As such, the 2 plugins don't integrate with each other.

    What you can do is allow registrations and logins through Facebook and then grant privileges to users through Membership after they've already registered.

    Regarding your further question, besides the Installation page for Membership, you'll find the following article from the wpmu.org blog tremendously helpful in setting up the plugin.
    https://premium.wpmudev.org/blog/create-a-simple-tutorial-site-with-the-wpmu-dev-membership-plugin/

    A quick note also regarding your further questions, you can setup the PayPal settings in Membership > Edit Gateways. And you'll want to ensure all the Membership Levels, Subscriptions and Gateways you're using are Activate (and also Made Public in the case of Subscriptions).

    With that, all the relevant subscription options should show in your subscription form.

    Hope that helps!

    Hi @golftourney,

    There's still no specific integration at this point, but you can let registrations go through Ultimate Facebook and then send users to the Membership subscription page. The results are very much like integration.

    Cheers,
    David
