How To Test Your Membership Site Setup With A Test User

Before your AccessAlly membership site goes live to the public, it’s always a good idea to create a test user. With this test user, you can explore the front-end of the membership site to make sure that everything is working properly. Even the smallest mistake in a CRM automation or permission tagging can make a huge impact on your site.

Choose From The 2 Testing Methods

There are two different ways to test your site, and you’ll want to use both.

Method 1: Change Your Admin User to “All Access”

This method gives your admin user the ability to view all pages of the site, regardless of what tags are assigned where.

To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Log in as your WordPress Admin account
  2. Go to WordPress – Users and search for your admin user.
  3. Edit the user. Towards the end, there is a checkbox to give the user All-Access. Check this box and click “save”.

Method 2: Create a test user

This will be best to do to check your completed course to test your automation, tags, and emails that you send.
What you will want to do is follow this tutorial here to create a test user and use them for testing:


Test All Opt-Ins

The first thing to test are the opt-ins you’ve set up on your site. Each time you opt-in, you’ll want to use a different email address.


Test All Order Forms

Next, you’ll want to test any order forms that are set up on your site. To do this, please follow this tutorial: How to Test Your Order Forms with Stripe or PayPal


Test Your Online Courses and Automations

This phase of testing should happen naturally, as you test the opt-ins and order forms. Some main things to look for include:
Free Course

  • Did you submit the opt-in form?
  • Is the email address saved in the CRM?
  • Were the right permission tags added?
  • Was this information synced with AccessAlly (via a webhook)?
  • Did the email confirmation go through successfully?

Paid Course

  • Did you make a test purchase with your order form?
  • Is the email address saved in the CRM?
  • Were the right permission tags added?
  • Was this information synced with AccessAlly (via a webhook)?
  • Did the email confirmation go through successfully?
