Membership no blogs created

I'm working on a test site right now and I'm having a bit of trouble with the WordPress Membership plugin. I'm looking to automate the process of sign up and blog creation. I've created a free trial membership under the Membership Levels option. I also created a free 30 day trial subscription for that, and activated both. I placed the [subscriptionform] tag on a sign up page, and pointed the Registration Page option to it in the Membership Options menu.

The signup process works, but no blogs are created for the users. What am I doing wrong? I've poured through the install directions a couple times with no luck.

    Hiya thinkroth,

    First off, welcome to WPMU DEV!

    Sorry you're having trouble here. Let's knock out a few of the basics first. What version of WordPress/BudyPress are you running? It is multi-site correct?

    Can you post a screenshot of how you have the rules for this level set up? I don't believe that a blog will be created automatically for the member, but rather they will be able to log in and create a blog (from the Dashboard>My Sites page). Can you verify whether or not this is possible on your install?

    If you're looking to charge folks for the ability to create a site (rather than have access to the content on a site) you might consider using our Supporter plugin instead. Membership is very powerful and can be used for blog creation, but charging folks to create a blog is exactly what Supporter was designed to do.

    Let us know if you need any further information.

    Thanks!

    Hi,
    Membership Plugin clarification
    So if a person subscribes to be a member of a site using Membership plugin http://domain.com they have admin/ back end access to content of the Super Admin?

    If the back end access to the pages is blocked then the subscriber can't see the front end page even if you want them to be able to see it?

    The only way that the subscriber can create a site is from Super Admin My Sites>Create New Site to add a site http://domain.com/1234? Why would a site give a subscriber even limited access to parts of the Super Admin panel?

    No only super admin users get super admin access the membership plugin doesn't change this.

    Not sure what you mean here.

    No they can go to http://domain.com/wp-signup.php - but you'll have to put in a link to that page in a menu somewhere as WP doesn't automatically do that. Or go to My Sites and then click on the Create New Site link from there (which will take them to the wp-signup page i mentioned earlier).
