Concepts

In order to use Easy Membership Sites to it’s full potential you should understand some of the internal structure and concepts that underlie the platform.

The platform is built on modules.  As each module was built over time and built by different development groups, they each look a little different in the admin area.  Don’t worry though – you quickly get used to the differences.  And once you get your site up and running you rarely have to worry about them again.

Each major module will usually have its own settings screen while minor modules will add a screen under the global SETTINGS menu.

The major modules are:

  • MEMBERSHIPS
  • MEMBER MANAGER
  • TICKETS
  • FORUMS
  • PAGE DESIGNER
  • EMAIL CAMPAIGNS
  • SIMPLE COURSES
  • POSTS (ARTICLES)
  • PAGES

There’s also a dozen+ minor modules.

A side effect of this module structure is that, many times, there are multiple ways to accomplish the same thing.  For example there is a fair amount of overlap between the MEMBERSHIPS and MEMBER MANAGER module.

If you ever have a question about the best approach, definitely contact us – either via our contact form, a support ticket (best option) or even email.  All contact options are visible in the Dashboard of your site.
