Question

Site URL: https://wycombeastro.org

Hi.

I'm wondering if some one can help.

I'm setting up a members area on my site, https://wycombeastro.org, and would like to just display the login pop-up form with no sign up (create) link to the Members area or to create a customer account. The reason why is that the site is for a society for paid members (paid for outside of Squarespace) and I 'm going to create their accounts manually for them to access this area from a password protected sign up page. When I use the Members Area block it always displays the sign up form in the pop-up form and has a "Sign in" link to at the bottom of the login pop-up form.

I would like it to display the login form instead as below.

I have worked out I can do this by visiting the link, https://www.wycombeastro.org/account/login

This is the same link as Squarespace creates in the main navigation and you click the "Sign In" link. However, in this pop-up there is a "Create account" link and for some weird reason if you fill the form in it creates customers accounts not member area accounts like the Members Area Block.

As I didn't want this or for visitors to sign up for members areas, I have manged to hide the navigation with this CSS

#navigation-top nav ul> :nth-child(8) {
 display: none;
  
}

However, it would be good to have the official navigation link and login pop up minus the "create account" link on it.
Any ideas how to do this?

Note, if I set my custom CSS  "display" value to "block" in  it will show the normal "Sign In" link in the main menu.

The other  issue I have is if a site visitors enter a protected members page it gives them the option to Join so I need a way to hide this. See screen shot below. I just want to show the sign up pop-up again minus the Create Account link .

I'm assuming perhaps both of these can be achieved by some custom code that can be added to the page or injected in the page or CCS. Ideally, I would like to be able to create my own custom login page that can be accessed from the main menu and displayed if a visitor tries to access a members area page when not logged on. But to do this I need know the form post url and fields names for username and password text boxes to re-create the Members login pop-up.

Many thanks in advance.

Mark

I find it utterly disappointing that a simple feature like hiding the "Join" button is not supported for something like the members area feature that costs extra on top of an already premium price.

Unfortunately, the current implementation of 'Member Areas' does not support the configuration that you want. It was built to encourage signups and was not built to accommodate private sites with existing memberships.

Hopefully further features will be added to allow this sort of customisation but, in the meantime, there are no options to change the behaviours or layouts that you describe, and code cannot be used to change them.

I have the same issue. I posted here in the Forum and reported to SS.

I now have members logged in but can't log out with out revealing Join option.

Is there are way to log out of Members Area? or create a log-out link?

 

I have resolved this issue. For this client there was a fixed membership. Once all member have signed up, we disabled all SS join/create functions. So the issue became having access to the Account Panel and Signing out. A simple text link URL /account/login does the trick.

I have resolved this issue. If you want to know how, please reply.

The original issue is after ending membership sign up, how so members gain access to their Account Panel and Sign Out option.

@MJCarp how did you end up resolving this?

When you are ready to close membership sign-up, disable all buttons in the header and delete any member area sign up blocks. Create a new Page and put in the Members Area navigation. I titled mine "Account Panel/ Sign Out. Create a section/text block on this page. The text should explain that you are providing link to a member's account panel. Highlight text "Account Panel" and using the Link Editor choose Page and type: "/account/login". 

When a member navigates to their Account Panel, they can now sign out using the  link under their name.

Has anyone worked out if you can set a logout action via a URL parameter? I want to give people the option to logout from a menu item.

Thanks
