Support » Plugin: Sports Club Management » “Member”/”User”

  • Resolved asindiggler


    Hi, I’m struggling a bit with whether to add users and/or members to best utilise the Sports Club Management plugin. Are SPM members also, separately meant to be WP Users? There’s a username field for members that I assume relates to the WP username and I can see that there’s an option under the member categories to specify privacy settings based on wether a user is logged in and their Community Role.

    Is there a way to avoid duplication of effort?
    How do members log-in if they aren’t also a user? If there’s no log-in then can members edit each other’s pages (for example).

    I’m also trying to use the Ultimate User plug-in to make parts of the website a “Members Only” area. Is there any conflict between UM and SPM?

    It is not required that a club-member is also a WP user. You can manage your member list (and invoices and competitions, whatever you do) without members being WP users. The shortcodes show all the data, except for privacy related data.

    If you’d like a member to be able to view whether has own personal data is correct (or you want him/her to see info on invoices) that member must be a WP user. Otherwise there is no way to log in. In addition, you must link the two together: add the WP username into the member record.

    Wrt “can members edit each other’s pages”. All depending of the user’s role. There is an overview of this here.

    Am not aware of the Ultimate User plugin. Cannot comment on that.

    Hope this helps!
