Member Action Button

You can create a button to trigger a specific action when clicked. This allows for many useful scenarios like adding or removing a level. An action button can be applied to a Level or Pay Per Post which opens up more possibilities.

A Member Action Button can be created in either of two places.

  • Create a Member Action Button using the WishList Member Shortcode Creator
  • Create a Member Action Button on a page/post using the Classic Block in the Gutenberg Editor

  • Move to
  • Remove from
  • Cancel from

Once options are selected for the Action and Access dropdowns, additional settings will appear.

A Redirect URL can be set to direct the user to the site after registration page or stay on the same page or be sent to a specific URL after using the Member Action Button.

Similar to Level settings, you can select if the Member Action Button requires admin approval or requires the user to confirm through email.

The Button Label can be adjusted and you can select whether to Hide or Disable the button if the action cannot be performed.

Additional CSS Classes can be added for those who want to apply customization.
