    Hello there @Kent and welcome to the WPMUDEV Community!

    Could you please grant me access to your backend so that I may see exactly what is happening?
    To do so, from your dashboard go to WPMUDEV => Support => Support Access and click on the "Grant access" button.

    Cheers,

    Patrick:

    looking at the link given this is what I am seeing:

    Your Subscriptions
    Your current subscriptions are listed here. You can renew, cancel or upgrade your subscriptions by using the forms below.

    No form appears

    Ok Ty as you described above the result shown was able to duplicated. What seem to be my misunderstanding on how to direct a "Non registered user - new user/visitor to a subscription page or why no subscription page/button displays when the user arrive at the site for the first time?

    Do not seem to understand yet how "membership" works fully.

    Hi there @Kent

    I hope you are having a great day!

    The Membership plugin does not automatically add a "Subscribe" button or link anywhere on your site, except of course on the registration page as it was designed to do.

    If you want a button or link on your homepage to direct visitors to your registration page, you can add a custom link to your menu, or add a button in a widget like so:

    <a class="button" href="http://dev.soulofva.com/register/">Signup</a>

      Fair. Then how does "Membership" allow for a new/non/visitor/stranger to register/subscribe when arriving at the home page initially? Does a notice display saying "Would like to join" or a screen asking you to complete a subscription form.

        Hi @Kent

        Does a notice display saying "Would like to join" or a screen asking you to complete a subscription form.

        You have to create this notice/button/link etc for your visitor. As Patrick said, membership doesn't add any button automatically as membership doesn't know exactly where you want to show that link.

        You can create a custom link in your main navigation, you can add a button or notice in sidebar widget or even you can show a notice as a popup, that's up to you.

        Cheers
