    I've activated the newsletter plugin, but there aren't new items in menu structure...
    Where are the options of this plugin?

    A few more newsletter factoids...
    • You can add newsletters to a signup page with the Newsletter Brick.
    • You author a newsletter in E-Mail Users -> Simple Search Users -> Subscribed to Newsletters...

    Wow great Grant!
    Perfect implementation :)

    One more thing...
    How can a user know his membership status? In member home page there aren't informations about the membership...

    By default aMember will display only links to available protected content that user have access. Products will not be displayed as in aMember v3 (because this info is useless). Use can see what products he purchased in payment history.

    uhmm Alex let me disagree.
    The first thing a member need to see in his member area is:

    Membership Type | Expiration Date | Money spent | Reneview Now.

    It's logic.

    Anyway, the expiration date is missing in payment history.

    giorgino,

    You add the links that Alex referred to by: Products -> Protect Content -> Links

    I misunderstood...

    Thank you Grant, but I don't understand how to show the Membership Title, Expiration Date, Money Amount via text link.

    Can you explain me?

    Unfortunately, this is displayed in different places.

    1. Links, Folders and other protected content is displayed right on [Main Page] page where customers are going after login.
    2. Current Subscription Status is displayed on [Payments History] page.
    3. User can order new subscriptions at [Add / Renew Subscription] page.

    Ok Alex, if I can suggest you an improvement, please think about inserting a membership memo in the main page of the user profile like first block on the left. It should really be a useful memo for the costumers (that, as usual, have a very short memory and often write to administrator to know their membership details).

    However, there is no record of "free" subscriptions. I have to agree with giorgino, there should be a place where users can see a list of their subscription products with expiration dates (paid or free).

    It is interesting idea, but there is really too different for different websites.
    For example, we at aMember.com would not like such feature, because it will be completely unclear for our customers. But I will be looking at this to make it more flexible.
