Help, I Hate the Weebly Register Option!!
If users are registering and getting access to your paid content for free (oh no!!!!) or, are just confused and contact you that they can't "login", they are probably using Weebly's register option which is designed for free registration and not paid members! Here's an open letter from Adam on how to resolve this with a solution and a request.
Hi Paid Members App Customer:
First, please let Weebly know via the Community forum that you would like them to add an option so you can show "Login" without "Register" but still allow 3rd party apps like ours to add members to your site via the backend Weebly API - they will only make changes if more customers request it.
With that said, here are the solution(s):
1.) Allow Registration to Free Content Only or No Content - In Weebly, please go to Settings > Members and change the default group for new members (see screenshot, below) to either (A) None or (B) a new group you create with a single informational page and no paid content. That setting defines what users get access to when they register.
2.) Remove the Register Option - We dug into the Weebly Theme code ourselves and figured out how to remove that Register option from the login form. We include that in our Weebly Theme Customization Course which is free if you are on an annual plan with us (look in your app dashboard in the green notification bar for a coupon) - it is designed for non-technical Weebly users like you.
I hope that helps!
