I hope you are OK in this really strange time we’re all experiencing. I may actually have had the virus, but it’s hard to know because here in the UK the testing process is far from ideal - as is the whole situation everywhere. I really hope you’re keeping safe.
You say I can remove the incremental access by easy customisation. That may be easy for you - but not for me - I’m useless at IT :-). Is the way to do that via the publish press capabilities app? Is it safe to do it that way? If so I think it’s an app I can handle as I’ve had a look at it without meddling. I assume it’s a case of revoking level access as a capability to all relevant course levels. So If I had courses at lever 11 and 12, for the level 12 member I’d revokethe capability of access to level 11?
Thrive do actually say that while you can’t add two levels via their interface, it can be programmed in, and that’s what thrive apprentice does - I think. Are you saying that’s incompatable with the way s2member does things? By way of example I hold the role of administrator and editor, can I not additionally hold the roles of level 11 and level 12? In the video thrive is saying that this is how it should work - go to 2 mins in:
I’d far rather use custom capabilities for the reasons that you say, but Thrive Apprentice doesn’t support this. I think it would be a case of puttin if/else commands on every course page, which would be a logistical nightmare even if I was good at IT.
Thrive apprentice works on roles, which seem to be what s2member levels are, not capabilities. So I’m limited to roles/levels.
I can try some testing on whether you really can have multiple levels via the apprentice app. Certainly that’s how it is designed to work, and it’s been live over a year so it’s reasonable to assume that’s correct. I will need to be able to remove the incremental access to levels first before I can properly test. Is the way to do that via the publish press capabilities app? Id it safe to do it that way? I think that would be by far the easiest way to do it, if it works. If you can genuinely remove the incremental access I can’t see how it would not work.
I’m trying to understand your hack…Surely that would still require users to have more than one role at the same time if I had more than one course, which is something I’m planning to do. So if the hack you suggest works, the solution I was proposing above would still work?
Are you saying users can have multiple roles, but not multiple levels? I thought that s2member levels were roles? Can someone not purchase access to say level 11 and level 12 in seperate transactions, and hold both roles?
I’m now really confused…
