Just a side-note about OTO’s

These are not real oto’s!

I mean, they are displayed at whatever point is setup in the config file.
They are also displayed to whatever membership level and access control is setup.

But: A user can easily save the page e.g. into his bookmarks or just remember the page’s slug.

A real oto would be displayed once, then if the same page URL is entered again (or even page is refreshed) it would not reveal the oto page.

Not a stopper, just to prevent some users from thinking s2m oto’s as the one time offers they are used to.

To us this is not a problem, because oto`s are displayed at certain membership levels only (oto page is s2m protected) If anyone from that group bookmarked the oto page and uses the oto offer at a later point (rather than immediately after oto is showed) then we are perfectly fine with that.

Every other possible user group can not see the oto page at all.

Hope this info was helpful.

Damn!! Stupid me!! :)

Thank you very much, Cristián!

Of course it is all working now. Fiddled with that issue for countless hours.
I did not thought of an s2m malfunction.. but at same time couldn´t see myself doing anything wrong.

Again, thank you!

Thank you for your reply, Christian!

I was testing as admin, but used:
[s2If current_user_is(s2member_level1) OR current_user_is(s2member_level4)]

That should mean the content is displayed for everyone being level1 OR level4 (where as admin i´m having level4)

I´m using “current user is..” because i do not want to display that content to other levels than specified here.
E.g. payment/upgrade info not needed to be displayed for higher levels..

Anyway, is there anything that could interfere with that shortcodes?
(as said; other shortcodes doing well, getting s2m constants is fine.. just that content protecting does not work)

Thank you very much, Neil!

yes your are on spot- the reason of 3 levels is because of wanting to give trials without need for payment details.

(it would be possible to setup free trial with paypal- but users would need to signup via paypal ; and clickbank does not allow free trials at all.) That method of giving free trials has been outlined by Jason in another topic:

So after a L2 is unpaid for whatever reason, s2member *would* demote the user to L1.. but recognizing L1 not feasible anymore.. finally demoting to L0. (of course that process may happen within split seconds)

Thank you Jason,

restriction levels used with the free signup form is now clear!

The shortcode (as outlined in pic) has register=”1″ and level=”1″. That´s why i wondered the payment symbols displayed.
But it is getting even more strange because (in the pic) both examples using the exact same shortcode (triple checked)

The paypal pro – free registration forms can´t be generated (unlike the other l1, l2,.. access forms there is only the shortcode to copy over and manually adjust the parameters.)

As the incorrect form displays only when used inside the “modal popup” plugin.. i thought of some conflicts with that particular plugin. But as everything else renders just fine.. i still have a hard time believing it only messes up the “register=1” element.

Thank you Jason!

However, i noticed that bml not available within my region (that probably means that i can´t use bml as a buyer of services.. but be able to OFFER bml for others shopping my products.)

But still, it makes me think if bml would be available to buyers outside of US… time will tell..

Thank you very much for the explanation.. would have had a hard time figuring that out!

Best regards,

P.S.: To sum it up for others having same questions:
just signup for bml and publish (not a must) the banner to let your user know about that option.
Nothing else to do! Eligible users who want to buy from you can apply for bml inside their own paypal account.

Means bml is handled inside/ along paypal.. therefore has no interaction whatsoever with wordpress and/or s2m

Shoppers: apply and enable bml for your paypal account

Another question on which access restriction to apply at those pages:

So, the outline I’m suggesting is as follows…

Level #1 will represent your free trial Members. Anyone at this Level is in their trial period. They ARE a Member, but only for a short time (1 week).
Level #2 will represent your paid Members. These are members who upgraded during their trial, or after their trial expired. They’ve now moved up to Level #2, a full Member now.
Level #0 will represent your Free Subscribers. These are people who have been demoted back down to Level #0, after having completed their trial period; and perhaps they’ve not paid for additional access yet.

Here is your Free Registration Form Shortcode that allows 1 week at Level #1.

[s2Member-Pro-PayPal-Form register="1" level="1" ccaps="" desc="Signup now, it's Free!" custom="" tp="1" tt="W" captcha="clean" /]

Be sure to change custom=”” to your own domain name.

You can create a Pro Form for Membership Level #2 Access here, and charge whatever you like.
Dashboard -› s2Member® -› PayPal® Pro Forms -› Membership Level # Forms

That would mean i can restrict member pages to level1( exactly as above shortcode implies). As they then after a week either be moved to level2 (which means they have also access to level1 content) or moved to level0 (which means they not have access to level1 content).

Or do i need to restrict pages with level2 access? (i doubt it, thinking level1 restriction being more correct)

Thank you!

Another great tool from you guys!!

One thing -maybe a bug or small issue- when pressing [Clear Cache] .. the loader on the left side of the button infinitely indicates doing something. Means it not stops displaying that moving loader circle.

However, after save page or reload page is initiated.. it reverts to it´s normal state.

So maybe my “maintenance” plugin or any other conflicts with that.. or it is something else.

This is not a great deal.. but maybe -if that issue is able to be replicated- confuses some users as they would assume the plugin is still clearing cache cause that circle moving loader icon not stopping.
