Running Affiliate, Membership2 and Coursepress together

We installed Affiliate plugin on our primary site, running Coursepress. We want to have affiliates promote our course for us. We ended up not being able to style the primary theme the way we wanted and have it work well with Coursepress, so we moved Coursepress to it’s own subsite.

Then we set up the Affiliate plugin, Membership2 and Coursepress on a subsite, so we could have affiliates set up an affiliate account and promote the course, right from a single subsite.

Then we found that running Coursepress and Membership 2 together on the same subsite is virtually impossible. We had login issues and couldn’t access the proper affiliate resources for weeks, and it seemed that Membership2 and Coursepress were conflicting with each other.

So we moved Affiliate plugin to yet another subsite. Our thought was that we could run a subsite just as as affiliate portal, and affiliates would then be able to access the affiliate resources they need and promote the course. Best of all worlds.

Now we’re learning that Affiliates cannot run on a subsite and track activity on another subsite, even if it’s on the same network. So we’re kind of stuck.

Surely there’s a way to have an affiliate portal and sell an online course off the same multisite, right? Any insight into how to get these plugins to work together is much appreciated!

    Much appreciated. I'll get this set up however we need to set it up. We currently have the following:

    1. Primary site for sales page running Avada theme
    2. Course site running Coursepress plugin and theme
    3. Membership portal that allows affiliates to sign up and gain access to affiliate dashboard and affiliate resources made available by Affiliate plugin

    These are all running on their own subsites. What's missing is the ability for affiliates to sign up and create an account that actually tracks anything. I'm happy to provide any details or change the site around however we need. The project has gone on much too long at this point, so we just need to get it wrapped up. Any insight is much appreciated.

    To be clear, if we can get Affiliate, Membership2 and Coursepress to run on the same subsite, it should work great. I was just never able to pull it off, because login redirects and various permissions all seemed to conflict with each other. Separate subsites seemed like the right answer, but now we're evidently coming full circle. The plugins don't seem to work together, and they don't seem to work apart from each other either. Any insight is much appreciated.

    Hi Christian ,

    Hope you're doing well today!

    Firstly, sorry for the delay in the reply and all the problems it may have caused.

    I was just never able to pull it off, because login redirects and various permissions all seemed to conflict with each other. Separate subsites seemed like the right answer, but now we're evidently coming full circle.

    I am testing both Membership 2 and CoursePress in the same subsite, but I was unable to replicate this issue. Can you describe better what issues you are having so I can try replicate it in my install? (redirect and permissions).

    What is the subsite where you got all the plugins installed and configured so I can give a look?

    Cheers, Luís

    Hi Luis I'm sincerely sorry but couldn't wait further to implement a solution, so we had to go another route for this project. I didn't realize I hadn't closed this ticket yet.

    I am VERY glad to hear these two plugins can work in unison, and I'm confident we'll use them together in a future project. Thank you for following up. If this issue presents again, I'll open a new ticket. Much thanks.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
