How To Integrate Elementor Forms With MemberPress?

If you are yet to hear of Elementor Forms on the WordPress site, they could prove to be highly influential in allowing your users to register and even contact you. That’s by just creating a simple form yet there is a never-ending amount of forms you could create with Elementor.

Simply add the own custom page fields you want and then customize them just how you desire so that they fit perfectly on your page. The add-on works by collecting the relevant inputted information and then storing it so you can integrate it with any CRM or marketing tools you may have. This guide will look at how to integrate Elementor Forms with MemberPress.

Why You Should Add On Elementor Forms?

The most popular use of Elementor Forms is to use them for a Contact Us form. This proves to be a highly effective means for users to contact you and makes for a welcome alternative to using more conventional communication methods. Not everyone wants to copy the email address and paste it into their email application.

As it proves so much easier with Elementor, you design it with a drop and drop leaving users to input their information and query. The forms can differ based on the type of information you wish to collect.

It may be for queries from users as customer feedback or developed to entice new leads. You could easily create your own user surveys or make it easier for event registrations.

How To Integrate Elementor Forms With MemberPress?

MemberPress is an ideal membership plugin for the WordPress membership site because it does the hard work with little maintenance required. The plugin can be used with virtually any theme, is easy to use with developers and beginners alike, and has several handy features.

Elementor works in tandem to add subscriptions and paid content. Though it is a paid-only solution, it may prove to be worth it in the long run.

  • To integrate Elementor Forms with MemberPress, install the MemberPress plugin to get started.
  • You should get an email with the download link and a unique license number so click and copy the download link first.
  • Log into your website and then scroll to ‘Plugins’ and click on ‘Add New’.
  • There should be an ‘Upload Plugin’ button to click at the top of the screen, browse across to your file and then click on ‘Install Now’.
  • Once the plugin has been uploaded and installed, you can enable it by clicking on ‘Activate’ in the ‘MemberPress’ section.
  • This is where the download link that you copied earlier comes in, paste it in and tap the ‘Activate License Key’ button to begin configuring your site.

Configuring MemberPress With Elementor

Now that MemberPress has been installed and activated on your site, it is time to make it work just how you want it to. Head to the options page on the MemberPress plugin and you can auto-create several new pages. One of the first things that you should do is head to ‘Pages’ and then click on the ‘Update Option button.

That should automatically add the crucial Thank You, login, and account pages. For monetizing your website, confirm your preferred payment methods in the ‘Payments’ section. There are several payment options available which include PayPal, Stripe, and even offline payments.

Then there are the simple options for adding your business information under ‘Info’ while the ‘General’ section allows you to choose the membership site’s language your website is in and the payment currency of choice. If you are feeling brave then head to ‘Taxes’ and make sure that your tax rates are correct and configured just right.

Add A New Elementor Form

Let’s say you want to add the MemberPress settings to an existing Elementor form.

  • Start by adding a new post or page and click on ‘Edit’ to edit using the add-on with an existing page.
  • Ensure you check the Memberpress login form menu once the Search Widget field is ready then drag it across to the right section and block.
  • You should be given a dialog box where you can define the content in the form. That should include the fields, the actions after submission, and the buttons.
  • Once you have defined the content, you need to name the form. For instance, if it is for MemberPress then ‘MemberPress – Registration’ would make sense. This is defined in the ‘Actions After Submit’ section.
  • The further definition includes the membership levels you desire, the format of the usernames, and how the fields are mapped.

Now that the Elementor form is set up, every single time that a user fills in that form to register, that individual and their details will be added as you defined it for the right membership levels.

Setting Up Membership Levels

One of the great benefits of pairing Elementor Forms with MemberPress is how you can create membership site forms for free and paid members. Head to the MemberPress plugin and click on ‘Memberships’ to create a means for users to create WordPress membership sites as they can purchase.

There are several ways of creating membership sites you can choose to access entire pages and levels and relevant own pricing page options. Click on ‘Add New’ at the top to create a new level each time you need one. Make sure that you name each level appropriately and then give it a relevant description.

On the other side, you can also disable the pricing page option too.

The right conditions are also important for whether creating membership sites are recurring or involves one-time billing when the subscription expires, and the price a user has to pay. You can configure the ‘Membership Options’ at the bottom of the page. The membership options include:

  • Price Box – This is where the content and design of your pricing table are defined for your membership levels.
  • Permissions – This is the section for determining which users are able to purchase a membership and the message they will be shown if they are not allowed permission to do so.
  • Registration – Further messages that you can define for your users are the text they see when they use a payment method, sign-up, or create members-only pages. This section also looks after which type of information from users you wish to collect upon registration.
  • Advanced – The advanced options include pricing terms, membership URLs, and any redirects you want to set.

As soon as you are content with the setup, click on ‘Publish’ and the new membership levels will be made available on your website. You may need to do this more than once depending on how many membership levels you want to create.

Final Thoughts

It should be straightforward to integrate Elementor Forms using MemberPress and it largely is. The WordPress membership plugins are adaptable and easy to use so you can define the form with the information you want it to include.

The permissions also give you control over what users see and that can be determined by the membership level. One of the most important features is setting the messages that pop up whenever a user submits a query or signs up.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Do You Edit Registration Pages Using Elementor?

Once you have created a membership level, click on the URL under its title or on ‘View Membership’ to see how the page looks at the front end. Edit the page at ‘Templates’ and ‘Add New’ then click ‘Single’ for the template and ‘Post’ for the post type.

Click on ‘Continue’ then on ‘Preview’ and click on ‘Settings’ for those preview settings. Choose ‘Memberships’ to select the registration page you want to edit then ‘Apply and Preview’ so Elementor can use the page content in the editor.

You can edit the page here and then click ‘Publish’ once you are finished editing but ensure that the display settings are limited to ‘Memberships’ and ‘All’ so that the new edit will apply to the following users who use the membership registration forms.

How Do You Configure The Access Rules?

You will want to determine the content that is available for every membership level and this is done on MemberPress under the ‘Rules’ section. Click on the “Add New” button and select the relevant and customized membership rules on the drop-down menus which could be posted on certain categories or with certain tags applied for a specific membership rule.

You can also set which users are allowed to view specific relevant content and this can apply to individual members or across a certain membership level.
