Creating Event Categories
This article will show you how to create event categories, which will organize them for optimal user experience. You will also learn how to set category access, controlling which membership levels can access certain events.
First, log in to the back end of your website [i.e. www.yourwebsite.com/wp-admin].
Then, click Events, and select “Event Categories”
Make the following selections:
- Event Name
- Slug: [the URL friendly version of the name - usually all lowercase]
- Parent term: [if this event is a subcategory]
- Description : Describe the event
- Category Access: This is set to “No” as a default, which means that all members will have access. Let’s say you have an upcoming event that you only want certain membership levels, or those who have purchased a one time package (bundle) to have access to. In order to restrict this to certain memberships, toggle the button to say “yes”, then enter the MemberMouse Membership Level ID.
*If you’re not sure what the MM Membership Level ID is, click on the blue link. This will take you to MemberMouse > Product Settings > Membership Levels.
There will be an ID number on the left hand side of the membership listing. This will be the MM Membership Level ID number.
For example, if there was an event that we only wanted customers who have purchased Platform Memberships to view, we would set that MM Membership Level ID to “2”.
Next, there is a place to enter the MemberMouse Bundle ID. If you have bundles set up in MemberMouse, click the blue link that says “MemberMouse Bundle ID”, which will take you to MemberMouse > Product settings > Bundles. On the left hand side, it will show that each bundle has it’s own ID.
Once these have been selected, click the blue “ Add New Event Category” button. You will see that your new event category has now been added.
