Show pre-expiration messages for members on your site

This post is inspired by a neat question we got from a Memberships user recently: How can I share messages on-site when a membership is about to expire? Typically our member content blocks or member shortcodes can be used with a “delay” attribute to achieve this, as you could show content 355 days after a year-long membership starts.

Create a member home page with Memberships blocks

Here’s an Ask SkyVerge question we’ve heard from lots of Memberships users: When a member logs in, how can I redirect them to a custom member home page instead of the WooCommerce account page? This has been a popular request for some time, but wasn’t feasible for us to address since members can belong to multiple plans. How would Memberships know which page to send a user to when they belonged to multiple plans? It’d…
