New theme and setting up online courses with Sensei

Today I worked on setting up a new theme on my shop (https://demo.themesharbor.com/matthew/) which is a non-Storefront based WooCommerce-built theme. It ended up having too many little display issues with WooCommerce memberships though so I ended up switching back to just plain Storefront for now.

Additionally, I also dove into creating an online course with Sensei that is free for members: https://getonwithit.art/course/painting-how-to-blot-painting/

I have the basics set up and tried using one of my members (Sam!) to access the content and see what the experience is like.

First off, I forgot that I never actually purchased a basic membership for Sam’s account, but I was able to move the order to the correct customer by editing the order so that the membership now shows up under the account.

Next, I had initially set up the access incorrectly (as a subscription not as a membership), so I had to revise the settings per the instructions for selling courses using memberships. Things can get a bit confusing when you are selling Subscription Memberships!

Now it’s working like it should!
