How to Control the Dolphin 7.1 Membership Levels

Hello and welcome! In today’s blog I’ll show you how to modify the default Dolphin 7.1 membership levels or create custom membership levels for your Dolphin 7.1 website. Dolphin comes with three default membership levels, they are:

Non-member – This level is self explanatory. It is anyone who hasn’t joined the site.

Standard – This is the basic level for anyone who signs up.

Promotion – This is a special membership you can use if you plan on adding paid membership types.

At the end of the 7 days they are automatically changed to a standard member.
