Member account links

Your members should sign in and out of your WordPress site using Memberful links. When a member clicks a Memberful sign in link they're automatically signed in to Memberful and your WordPress site. When they sign out they'll be signed out of both Memberful and WordPress. What's more, your members should manage their personal information and subscriptions through a Memberful account link.

In this help doc:

From your WordPress dashboard, navigate to any post or page. Click the Memberful button in the WordPress editor and then select Sign in link from the dropdown list.

Memberful sign in link

If you'd like to create a sign in button instead of a text-based link, use the URL below with a button builder. Replace YOURSITE with your actual Account URL sudomain.

From your WordPress dashboard, navigate to Appearance → Menus. Click Screen Options and then select Memberful Links. From the Memberful Links list select Sign in, Sign out, and Account, and then click Add to Menu.

Memberful menu links

By default, we will show the Sign in link to logged out members, and the Sign out and Account links to logged in members. To disable this setting, navigate to Settings → Memberful in your WordPress admin dashboard.

Add a Memberful Profile widget

From your WordPress dashboard, navigate to Appearance → Widgets, and drag the Memberful Profile widget to your sidebar.

Memberful Profile widget

When a member is signed in, the widget will display the member's Gravatar photo, a link to their Memberful account page, and a link to sign out of Memberful and your WordPress site.

Use the URL below to add a member account management link anywhere on your site. Replace YOURSITE with your actual Account URL sudomain.

Removing the CSS from the widget

To remove all the plugin-generated CSS from the widget (presumably to style it yourself) add this code to the functions.php file of your theme:


function mythemename_remove_stylesheet( $current ) {
    return false;

add_filter( 'memberful_wp_profile_widget_add_stylesheet', 'mythemename_remove_stylesheet' );
