Membership Plugin never gets to Welcome Page

Well, I'm 0 for 2 with this plugin. Doesn't play well with Elegant Themes featured sliders (the tab version). Although I got it kinda working ...
But I still have the same problem after a user Registers. Instead of going to the expected Welcome page, they get a page that says "You currently have a subscription for the Member subscription. If you wish to sign up a different subscription then you can do below." The user at that point doesn't have any clue what to do next. Although with this version (3.0.2) they are at least members at that point and have access to the appropriate places. Yes, I have a Welcome page. I only have one subscription set up (Free, using the Free Gateway) and only 1 member level and 1 Visitor level. WordPress v3.4.1, single site.
Why doesn't the program send the user to the Welcome page?

    Hiya Terry,

    If you have one subscription setup to be Free, and set to be automatically assigned (on the general tab under membership>options) the users will never hit the welcome page because they're automatically assigned a level.

    To change this behavior set the User Registration to "none".

    Let us know if that helps! Thanks!

    Stated like that it makes perfect sense. And it works!

    The manual is very vague for that section and the statement in the General Options > User Registration almost says exactly the opposite of what you just said.

    Tell Timothy to just copy and paste what you just said into the help doc on page 10 and also in the plugin.

    Thanks for quick response.

    Note: Because a user is automatically assigned a subscription then they would never be redirected to the welcome page. If you want them to see the welcome page, they would need to signup to the subscription like they would any with any other I.e select the subscription they want and signup. So in that instance you would set this to none.

    Has just been added and will be there shortly.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
