Memberful WordPress plugin

The Memberful WordPress plugin makes it easy to integrate Memberful with your WordPress website and protect content for members only.

Use the Memberful WordPress plugin with WordPress.org and one of our recommended hosting providers OR the WordPress.com Business Plan. If you aren’t on the WordPress.com Business Plan and you don’t want to upgrade, you can use the WordPress.com guided transfer service to move your content over to a self-hosted WordPress.org website.

Install the Memberful WordPress plugin

WordPress plugin install

  1. From your Memberful dashboard navigate to Settings → Integrate and click the link to activate the WordPress service.
  2. Copy the WordPress registration key (ctrl/cmd + c).
  3. Install and activate the plugin on your WordPress site.
  4. Paste your registration key (ctrl/cmd + v) into the field and click the Register this site with Memberful button.

Once connected, your members will be signed into WordPress when they sign into Memberful. Their plans are also automatically synced, which makes it easy to protect WordPress content.

WordPress theme compatibility

Most WordPress themes are compatible with Memberful. The only requirement is the theme must present post and page content using the default WordPress content function.

Looking for a WordPress theme? We recommend the Make theme from our sister company, The Theme Foundry.

Redirect issues?

We set a cookie that redirects members back to the page they were on (or somewhere else) after they sign in. Some hosting providers will ignore these cookies by default and still serve the page from the cache. If your redirects aren’t working, contact your hosting provider and ask them to add a custom cache exception for Memberful (exclude memberful_endpoint=.* from the cache).
