I have a subscription site using Joomla – Amembers – And Community Builder. We use Amembers to charge for access to our online guitar school. We just ran a promotion and are selling DVD's in certain music stores and along with the DVD purchase they are allowed to create a profile online and use the message board and support features.
They just won't have access to the actual online lessons and certain practice tools (that I set to “registered”) until they purchase a subscription. So basically they can use the Community Builder features and support chat etc…
I am guessing that normally you would be able to do this by setting everything you wanted them to access to public, and then they could create their profile etc… But because we use Amember the registration link takes them to the Amembers signup page. I need to bypass that so they can create CB profile and use all the public items.
I know in Amembers I could create a product with access to a certain level (maybe public so they can create their CB profile), but not sure what do and don't want to mess anything up. We will be adding them manually… They now fill out a form with the code they have on their DVD insert and we will go into Amembers/Joomla/CB etc... How ever it needs to be done.
Please just don't kick out a bid without a thorough knowledge of Payment gateways i.e. Paypal/CcBill and the functioning of Joomla Amemebers and Community Builder.
