CW Members Area Pro – a members site
The Creative Wonders Members Area Pro system is a members site built for businesses or individuals who wish to provide a private space for their customers. This private area is only accessible by a login and can be used for providing services and subscriptions. Members can log in to watch training videoclips, to have access to informational material, news or anything that a private community would need. The business offering the private area can use it for direct revenue, by offering access to the private area as a paid service, or for indirect revenue, by using the private members area to enhance their product and service offerings.
Email activation is used during the first steps of the user registration process in a members site to ensure that the user is safe and there is no security issues. If the user does not click on the activation link, the link will expire, avoiding future issues with false account creation.
Customisable Menu System
Customisable, clear and functional menu system, implemented as a left sidebar. The menu items have sub-items which are actual links to pages. Customisation of the menu ensures that the business offering the members site will have the exact menus and pages they want to link to, with the exact names that they wish to have.
User Profile Editing
User Profile Editing allows the users of the members site to change their personal details and their photo, thus allowing self-service and reducing admin work that would otherwise need to be done by the webmaster.
Flexible Content Pages
Content pages in the members site can be customised to the exact specifications of the business offering the service to their clients. Flexible customisation can provide panels, menus, accordions, tabs and other similar elements that enhance the look of a page and provide more information in less space, without the need for lengthy or multiple pages.
Forms can be created within the private pages of the members site to provide the members with the ability to request support, apply for a service or for any other purpose that would require a web form. With a clear and slick interface, these forms will add to the professional image of the business while enhancing productivity and reducing support calls and emails.
