    This is I'm guessing pretty straightforward but have never done it in 10+ years of using aMember.

    I have about 8 membership types and all are to give access to a protected folder called /members

    I now want to set up another folder called /members-special, which will be the same level in my domain tree, not a sub-folder.

    How would I create a membership to deal only with documents inside /members-special? I want this "Special Membership" to be available on the standard /signup page too. Is that possible? Do I just go through protect content >> folders in Admin and do it there?

    You need to create folder members-special on your file system first. Then set up product "Special Membership" in aMember admin interface at aMember CP -> Products -> Manage Products and
    finally protect your folder at aMember CP -> Protect Content -> Folders. Choose your "Special Membership" in access permissions for this folder.

    I hope it make sense.

    That all sounds simple and logical, many thanks.
