Members Integration Module not working

I don’t know what I am doing wrong but I installed the plugin and added my event with pricing. I also uploaded the members module and enable it. When I register for an event, it gives me a confirmation and sends an email confirmation to me, but it doesn’t prompt me to register for an account. I don’t get any account registration info. I don’t know where to log in to view events purchased. I don’t even know where to find the screen/page that shows how to update profile and view events. What am I doing wrong. Am I missing something?

The members integration module doesn’t automatically prompt people to create an account. It allows logged in users (who already have an account on the site) to have access to member only pricing and member only events.

See the documentation for this add-on for more info: https://eventespresso.com/wiki/members-integration-addon/

So there is no way that the purchasers can be automatically signed up for an account while purchasing the tickets? I would think this would be something that is done by default. How do I enable this?

It’s not done by default. WordPress has a built in widget that can be placed on a page that allows for log ins and registrations. There are other plugins that let you extend this functionality. The Members integration add-on extends the WP user system into a members like integration.

So I am tryign to understand the steps.
In order for customers to sign up for an event and purchase a ticket.

  1. They must first register on the wordpress site using teh wordpress widget
  2. Once that is done go back to the event page while logged in and purchase the ticket
  3. Once they have purchased the ticket, we have to manually send an email reminding them that they can log in and print/view their ticket since this is not done automatically

Am I correct?

They only need to register first if the event is members only, or if there is members pricing being offered to members only.

step 2 is correct.

No manual emailing is necessary, as Event Espresso will automatically email registrants according to how you’ve set up the email notifications. If you include the ticket link in the email, they can download the ticket right from the email.

Ok. I think I got if. If I want to have the customers register on the site then buy the tickets. I should make the event a member only event. That way it forces them to register. Am I correct?

That’s correct.

Is there a way to bring the My Events section into a page instead of the dashboard?

There isn’t a feature that’s built into Event Espresso that brings the My Events section to the front end of the site. Someone else said they were able to do this by creating a page with an iFrame that displays this info, but I don’t have any details about how they did that.

In order to make this work, you’d also most likely need to install some 3rd party plugins to restrict this page to be viewable only by logged in users.
