Membership Options

There are a handful of integration options you can use in conjunction with Showit for membership options on your site!

While there is no membership functionality built directly into Showit, it can be achieved with the help of third-party options. See more details below.

⚠️ All third party plugins and integrations are subject to change by their respective developers. Before downloading a plugin, make sure that it is compatible with the most current version of WordPress.

If you have questions about whether or not a service works well with Showit, we recommend checking in the Facebook Showit User Group.

Compatible Membership Plugins

  • ALL of these plugins will require an Advanced Blog subscription to be installed.

  • These plugins may require additional blog templates to function correctly with the Showit theme. As we learn these details we'll try to document them in the requirements column.

Plugin Name

*Requirements to work with Showit.

WP Simple Membership

*This is a course building platform that has a membership option integrated.


This is the best way to integrate a membership section into your site. MemberSpace will work on any Showit site pages as well as blog pages. See a full tutorial on integrating MemberSpace below.

MemberSpace also has a WordPress plugin that can be used in your blog. You can also simply apply their code to your blog pages, however, using the plugin does provide you some additional advantages:

  • Applies MemberSpace code to all blog pages for you

  • Recognizes you as an admin and won't ask you to login to the member portal

If you'd prefer, there are also additional options available to you via WordPress, although it is important to note these options would only work on WordPress pages, not Showit site pages.

Other things to keep in mind:

  • It will require the Advanced Blog subscription

  • This advanced functionality extends beyond the scope of our general Support, therefore you may want to consider working with a qualified designer or developer if you have trouble implementing this functionality on your site

We've had a number of users ask us which membership plugins in WordPress are compatible with our Showit theme. With the help of our designer community, we've compiled this list of plugins that work and are known not to work. As with any third-party controlled plugin, compatibility may change based upon software updates by Showit or the plugin developer. We cannot guarantee compatibility with a third-party plugin.

Incompatible Membership Plugins

At this time these plugins do not appear to work with our Showit theme.

Our Showit Design Partner Penguin Designing helped compile this list from her experience, along with a helpful article that she has posted on her site about how to determine what Membership software is best.
