First of all, a Thank you to Sam for his great Script. Very Happy
The below is consolidated from the DL Admin Area.
I initially did it for myselt and saved it as a text file to follow
as I built pages.
Copy and paste it for your own and save in "Notepad".
Hope this helps some folks. Smile

------------------------------------------
----- Building Membershipsite and Pages:
=========== LOGIN TO ADMIN ======
-----1) Click on the "Memberships" tab at the top of your screen
-----2) You will see all your membership groups listed.
STOP AND CREATE MEMBERSHIP GROUP/S BEFORE PROCEEDING TO # 3)
--------------------- AFTER creating group/s----------------
-----3) Click the "Get Code" link next the group name you're setting up.
-----4) Setting up your sales links:
-----------------------
----- PAID MEMBERSHIPS:
If you're setting up a Paid Membership option then you'll see your Sales link here.
-----------------------
----- SINGLE PRODUCT PURCHASE MEMBERSHIPS:
If your membership type is a Single product purchase then you simply use
the original sales link from your single sale item.
-----5) Next you will need to generate the code snippet that you need to paste on each of your membership pages.
This code snippet will protect the pages you paste it into.
Simply enter your membership page full URL into the box near the bottom of the screen .
Here you can also select whether or not you would like other Memberships Groups to have access
to this same membership area.
If you would, simply type in their Group Number
(the number next to the Group Name on the Membership overview page).
-----6) Then click Generate.
You will be given a small code snippet to paste into your membership page.
This code snippet can be used for all the pages in the SAME folder as the one you generated the code for.
-----7) IMPORTANT: You need to paste the code snippet at the very top of your webpage,
-----8 Cool PASTE BEFORE ALL your HTML tags.
-----9) If you have membership PAGES IN A DIFFERENT FOLDER then you will
need to GENERATE NEW CODE for pages in the NEW FOLDER.
----10) All pages need to be on the same website as DLGuard.
----11) All done!
=======================
----- OPTIONAL: Custom membership pages:
The creation of your membership site is completely up to you.
-----1) Build your webpages as usual but .....
-----2) Make sure you save them as PHP file.
All this means is that you need to save them with a ".php" file extension.
-----3) Save your page/s as index.php.
-----4) Paste the code snippet as described above into the start of each page.
This gives you complete and 100% control over your membership site.
-----------------------
----- MEMBERSHIP PRODUCT DOWNLOAD PAGE:
----- You can have DLGuard automatically list secure download links of products in your membership site.
----- Simply paste the code snippet below into your webpage, and the products
you've allowed your members access to (set in the Edit page of your membership groups)
will be displayed here.
----- Members will be limited to the number of download attempts
you set in the group Edit screen.
This code snippet to display the download products:
----- DOWNLOAD CODE SNIPPET:
<?php include($pathToDLG."members/displaydownloads.php"); ?>
-----------------------
If you wish to offer your customer non-protected products,
or products that aren't listed in DLGuard, then simply
------- add them to your membership pages with raw links as you normally would.
-----------------------
----- CUSTOM LOGIN BOX:
You can also modify the login box template that your customers are
presented with when first logging in to your website.
----- This template is simple HTML and can be found here:
http://YOURSITE.com/YOUR(DL)DIRECTORY/templates/memberships/login_template.html
-----------------------
----- If you use images in your template, make sure you use the full URL to your images (including the "http://").
You can use DLGuard Action Tags to display custom information to your buyer.
To use them, simply type the action tag as plain text into your template.
DLGuard will replace these tags with the appropriate item when the page is displayed on your website.
----------------------- DLGuard ACTION TAG - (What will be displayed):
%%dlglogin%%
-----------------------
The login boxes for your customer to login to your membership site

----- CUSTOM THANK YOU PAGE FOR PAID MEMBERSHIPS:
You can customise your thankyou page (the page that your customers are sent to after buying their memberships).

http://YOURSITE.com/YOUR(DL)DIRECTORY/templates/memberships/thankyou_template.html
-----------------------
----- You can use DLGuard Action Tags to display custom information to your buyer.
To use them, simply type the action tag as plain text into your template.

*****--- ****** --- DLGuard Action tag What will be displayed:
%%supportemail%% Your support email address
%%details%% The customers login details
%%loginbutton%% A link to your membership site URL
-----------------------
----- TESTING YOUR MEMBERSHIP SITE::
Testing is a great idea, and always should be done before unleashing your new membership site into the world.
----- To do a simply test you can create a paid membership site where the first week is free, and then signup
to the membership site using your second Paypal account, or ask a friend to signup to it.
----- You can then cancel your membership before the first week and you won't be charged anything.
----- When you cancel your membership, DLGuard will automatically set your membership to "refunded" and will block access to the membership site.
----- Single sale item memberships can be tested simply by buying your single sale product and then logging in to your membership site.
Alternatively, you can import a test account by going to the Customers screen and clicking the Import button.
==================================
----- CHECK LIST: Have you? -
-----A) Tested to make sure your members is working before going live?
-----B) Made sure your membership pages end with .php?
-----C) Made sure you've pasted the code snippet on the top of each page you want protected?

When I insert an action tag into my chosen file, all that appears onscreen is the text.

For example, if I add

%%supportemail%%

I get the above text and not my support email address.
