The founder, Sheri Miles approached us for help get her website into a professional state and start signing up users. Her previous developer stopped all contact and left her stranded with a half-finished website and unsure what to do next.
As a membership website there were a mixture of different plugins being used all integrating with one another. BuddyBoss handled the theme, BuddyPress handled the user registration and MemberPress handled the different membership levels. To start with it was all very confusing as some settings took priority over others, which caused several headaches. In the end, we got the membership side of the site completed and up and running.
Sheri wanted to offer her members custom content depending on their membership level. For example, basic users could see a How To video, but premium members could see a step by step text, links to other videos and more information. With the integration of MemberPress we could restrict particular sections of a page with custom fields and PHP. There were three sections Sheri wanted to provide content to members:
- Guides – aka Exercise Videos. Over 180 videos have since been added by Sheri to the library. Each video provides a step by step walkthrough for a specific exercise, all performed by Sheri. Users can search based on the exercise name or the muscle(s) it exercises. All members can view the video, but only premium users can see information for important cues, step by step and muscles used.
- Programmes – There are 3 programmes: Get Gym Fit, Get Home Fit, and Strength. Each programme has a different goal and provides weekly PDF guides. Each guides is listed in ascending order, making it simple to download the correct guide.
- Recipes – Split into Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Snacks, users are able to search for and download healthy recipes that will keep them on target and happy.
