I’m new to building websites and coding so I’m totally lost. I should have played with the free version a lot more before deciding to buy it, but this system will allow me to do everything I need, if I can figure it out.
First, the tutorials don’t help me because I don’t understand coding too well. I started building an education website 2.5 weeks ago and I want to provide free e-learning course to my students, so the ability to create multiple memberships where one student can see their course and the regular content, but not the other courses is why I decided to buy S2.Here are the problems I’m having and can’t figure out.
1. Is creating a Login Welcome Page really needed for me. I just want the students to log in and return to the same page they logged in. I understand allowing people to log in and see things they have purchased and stuff like that, but I just want them to log in and return to the same page. To me, since they are all either free or assigned to one course, why redirect them away from a course page to go to another page and then go back to the course page?
2. The Membership Options Page- I don’t understand how to set that up with free content levels. I’ve watched the video on adding PayPal buttons, but since I’m not charging for content, do I still place the button on the membership page. And if I understand correctly, the membership option page will only come up if students try to click on content they aren’t registered for, then it redirects them there- right?
Also, there is a video on how to change code to make levels free, but it does not tell me what to do with the code after I’ve changed it. Where do I put it?
3. The registration page has a set of first name, last name, password, confirm password at the top AND the bottom.
These are just the first few problems, other things such as restricting level 2 to free content and level 2 content (but no access to level one) I haven’t even tried to contemplate.
Every tutorial is does the same thing, it takes you where you need to go, but assumes you know how to complete the instillation. I bit off way more than I can chew purchasing this- it is way above my level. Is there a way to get a refund? So frustrated right now.
