need assistance w/ issues or features with membership plugin

1. when members sign in, they see the JetPack plugin. What is this plugin used for and how can I remove it from member visibility.
2.There is Wordpress news on my dashboard, which is fine... but it is also on my members dashboard. how can i remove it?
3.when members click their username/icon logo @ the top right, it has notifications and profile options (to view, edit, change avatar), but it takes them to pages that are not valid. how can i either remove this access or fix the pages.

4. At the top left of the page it has the wordpress logo and multiple link options.. how can i remove this so members dont see it
5. also at the top left, my site name is listed. members can click to login, but it takes them to the main wordpress login. (the same that we see as administrators to login). I dont want to confuse members into thinking they've clicked the wrong site... how can i customize the page they see.

    Hey there,

    Thanks for posting on the forums.

    1. when members sign in, they see the JetPack plugin. What is this plugin used for and how can I remove it from member visibility.

    Here is more info on Jetpack : http://jetpack.me/about/ so if you do not need it, either disable it or in the Membership plugin >> access level >> Edit, disable jetpack access via the Plugins option

    2.There is Wordpress news on my dashboard, which is fine... but it is also on my members dashboard. how can i remove it?

    Its basically the same dashboard you and your members have. So if you disable it for your dashboard, its gone for your users as well. You can use : https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/ultimate-branding/ for this as it allows you to remove the dashboard widgets.

    3.when members click their username/icon logo @ the top right, it has notifications and profile options (to view, edit, change avatar), but it takes them to pages that are not valid. how can i either remove this access or fix the pages.

    It seems like you are using BuddyPress so kindly ensure that you have specified the pages under Settings >> BuddyPress >> Pages and a page is assigned to each option available there (apart from register page)

    4. At the top left of the page it has the wordpress logo and multiple link options.. how can i remove this so members dont see it

    Ultimate Branding has a admin menu addon : https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/ultimate-branding/ so you can remove that via the plugin. Usage guide here : https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/ultimate-branding/#usage

    5. also at the top left, my site name is listed. members can click to login, but it takes them to the main wordpress login. (the same that we see as administrators to login). I dont want to confuse members into thinking they've clicked the wrong site... how can i customize the page they see.

    You should ideally brand the login page with your logo (use Ultimate Branding plugin) for adding a login logo.

    But if you want to make a custom login page, you will need to get into the code : https://codex.wordpress.org/Customizing_the_Login_Form#Make_a_Custom_Login_Page

    Is that something you are looking to do ?

    I hope that helps. Please feel free to ask if you have more questions on the same.

    Cheers, PC

    Thank you PC.

    Also, I was on todays live support with Patrick. He's awesome.
    my homepage has two links in the menu... Kids Zone & Member Contact Form. that shouldnt be there. Patrick did a test site and activated the theme, set the member access, and his was ok. I went through his suggestions, but for some reason it's still showing these 2 pages. and Patrick said they are only showing on the home page. Can a support staff member login and check my home page or member access settings?

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.
