How to preview member area of site still in trial


Go to solution Solved by paul2009,

Recommended Posts

Putting together a website – still in trial – with a member area. Previewing the site via its Squarespace development URL and clicking the link to the membership area takes my client to to a Join/Sign in page. Clicking either of those pops up a box: 

MEMBERSHIPS IS CLOSED
Memberships for this site is closed. Contact the site owner for access.
DISMISS
 
Is there any way for the client to preview the membership pages via the development URL?

Unfortunately this is one of the two very frustrating limitations of the Member Areas product. It makes it so difficult to agree the workflow with clients because they cannot preview the onboarding process or setup a member area account/subscription until they've committed to purchase Member Areas.

However if you make your client a contributor, they will be able to view the member area page content, even though they cannot test the onboarding or the Member Areas account features.

Thanks @paul2009. Settled for dragging the pages out of the Member area into Unlinked pages, and explaining they'd be behind a Sign-in page. Trial site is password-protected anyhoo.

On this, wondering if Squarespace Member area supports non-password access, ie provide email address and tick declaration box, once. Content doesn't rate that much security and audience won't appreciate the extra password.
