Support » Plugin: Membership 2 » How to set ‘Privacy and Policy’ link on the registration form

    I cannot figure out how to set the URL for the Privacy and Policy link in the Registration form on my site’s homepage. The link presently is defaulting back to the homepage. This is the shortcode I’m using:

    <p>[ms-membership-register-user membership_id=”26″ title=”</p>
    <h3>(Header Text goes here)</h3>
    <p>”]
    </p>

    There are some nice plugins which auto-create Privacy and Policy pages, can you recommend one that works especially well with Membership 2?

    Your help would be greatly appreciated.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • To add to this question:

    How can I change the link label “Privacy and Policy” to say something else? I am sending users to our “Privacy Policy,” so this label looks like a typo. 🙂

    FWIW I am using the Privacy settings under the Settings menu to select the page.

    Hello @simanonok ,

    You need to create a Privacy page in the Settings -> Privacy and the Membership will use that page:

    @commontater
    you can use translation files to change that one string. You can “translate” to the same language used on your site and just change only that one line.

    Excellent, whatever file you select for your Privacy Policy page then works.

    Since you basically have two threads going on this page, I too would like to follow up on commontater’s question, because ‘Privacy and Policy’ does look like a typo and makes the page look amateurish as a result. I got a little bit into looking at ‘translation files’ enough to realize it was going to be an incredibly cumbersome process requiring many hours of research and experimentation, ultimately impacting site performance (I want to make the change on my homepage) and making all future edits into kludgy workarounds. That functionality is worth the investment in implementing if you really are translating a site into different languages, but it’s not intended to fix little typos like this.

    Instead, this typo should be readily fixable with CSS and it would be easy if it wasn’t for the damn link, which comes out as code displayed on the page and not a clickable link. This was as close as I could get it. NOTE that the way code is displayed below requires horizontal scrolling to see it all. What works better is to highlight all the code and copy it into your text editor so you can see it all at once:

    This SHOULD work but doesn't, outputs bare code instead:
    
    <style type="text/css">
       .wpmui-checkbox-caption {visibility: hidden;}
       .wpmui-checkbox-caption:before {
       content: "By creating an account you agree to the sites \003C a href \003D \0022 privacy-policy\002F \0022 \0020 target \003D \0022 \005F blank \0022 \003E Privacy Policy \003C \002F a \003E ";
       visibility:visible;
        }
       .wpmui-checkbox-caption {
          background-color: coral;
        }
    </style>

    Hello @smarsh5703 ,

    As I mentioned before you can use translation files to change that one string. You can “translate” to the same language used on your site and just change only that one line.
