Importing a WP User with Admin Permission
If you want your wp admin user to be able to view content protected with Simple membership then you can do the following
- Create a special membership level that you will apply to the admin user. You will use this membership level for admin users only.
- You can then give this membership level access to all the content that you are protecting.
- Import your wp admin user into simple membership and apply the “special membership level” to that account.
