Making member only websites

CiviMember can be used in conjunction with your CMS to create a members-only section of your website. Each CMS has its own integration module(s) that can be used to do this.

A typical workflow would be that a contact creates an account on your site and becomes a member of your organisation using a CiviMember membership sign up page. When they log in to you site they get access to member-only content on your site. This extra content could be from your CMS or it could come from your CRM, for example a detailed members directory, or a list of private events that are only available to members.

You can refer to the section on your CMS in the Integration chapter of the System Adminstrator Guide for more information or ask questions in the CiviCRM Community.
