Ep. 60: How to create Joomla! membership websites with RSMembership!

With RSMembership!, you can configure a fully functional membership website. You can impose restrictions to Joomla! categories, sections, articles, menus, components, folders and modules.

 

1. Restrict the access to Joomla! categories

  1. 1. In the Joomla! backend panel, edit the membership for which you want to add a category restriction.
  2. 2. In the "Shared Content" tab, click on the "Add content" button.
  3. 3. Choose the "category" option and add the Joomla! category that you want to restrict.
  4. 4. In frontend, the users will no longer have access to this Joomla! category without subscribing first to membership.

 

2. Restrict the access to Joomla! sections

  1. 1. In the Joomla! backend panel, edit the membership for which you want to add a section restriction.
  2. 2. In the "Shared Content" tab, click on the "Add content" button.
  3. 3. Choose the "section" option and add the Joomla! section that you want to restrict.
  4. 4. In frontend, the users will no longer have access to this Joomla! section without subscribing first to membership.

 

3. Restrict the access to Joomla! articles

  1. 1. In the Joomla! backend panel, edit the membership for which you want to add an article restriction.
  2. 2. In the "Shared Content" tab, click on the "Add content" button.
  3. 3. Choose the "article" option and add the Joomla! article that you want to restrict.
  4. 4. In frontend, the users will no longer have access to this Joomla! article without subscribing first to membership.

 

4. Restrict the access to Joomla! menus

  1. 1. In the Joomla! backend panel, edit the membership for which you want to add a menu restriction.
  2. 2. In the "Shared Content" tab, click on the "Add content" button.
  3. 3. Choose the "menu" option and add the Joomla! menu that you want to restrict.
  4. 4. In frontend, the users will no longer have access to this Joomla! menu. The menu will be available only after the user subscribes to membership.

 

5. Add URL restrictions

You can use URL wildcards to replace one or an unlimited number of characters.

5.1 Using the {?} wildcard

 

    We'll partially restrict the access to a Joomla! component by imposing an URL restriction.
  1. 1. In the Joomla! backend panel, edit the membership for which you want to restrict the component.
  2. 2. In the "Shared Content" tab, click on the "Add content" button.
  3. 3. Choose the "URL" option.
  4. 4. In our example, we'll restrict the RSEvents! calendar using the {?} wildcard. We'll replace the ...., thus users will no longer have access to May events.

 

5.2 Using the {*} wildcard

 

    Now, we'll use the {*} wildcard to restrict the access to the entire Joomla! component.
  1. 1. In the Joomla! backend panel, edit the membership for which you want to restrict the component.
  2. 2. In the "Shared Content" tab, click on the "Add content" button.
  3. 3. Choose the "URL" option.
  4. 4. The {*} wildcard replaces all the characters after the component name com_rsevents. The user will need to have the membership active to access any page that contains index.php?option=com_rsevents.

 

6. Restrict the access to Joomla! modules

  1. 1. In the Joomla! backend panel, edit the membership for which you want to add a module restriction.
  2. 2. In the "Shared Content" tab, click on the "Add content" button.
  3. 3. Choose the "module" option and add the Joomla! module that you want to restrict.
  4. 4. In frontend, the users will no longer have access to this Joomla! module without subscribing first to membership.

 

7. Restrict the access to Joomla! folders

  1. 1. In the Joomla! backend panel, edit the membership for which you want to add a folder restriction.
  2. 2. In the "Shared Content" tab, click on the "Add content" button.
  3. 3. Choose the "Folder" option and select the folders that you want to restrict.
  4. 4. In frontend, the users will no longer have access to this Joomla! folder without subscribing first to membership. After subscription, the folder will be available in the "View my membership" menu.

You can actually set the type of user that will be created by RSMembership!. Existing users will have to be manually added via the RSMembership! Subscribers area.

RsMembership

I saw the intro videos, I would like to know the integration with the joomla user system, after a subscriber complete the process and become member in what joomla user group will he be? If I already have users that signed up using the standard joomla access form Can I integrate that user with RS membership?

Thank you
