A membership site should not only offer good and useful content but should also offer an amazing user experience. The login process is one such experience that every user of the site goes through, and this process needs to be fast. You don’t want your user to be kept staring at the screen during the login process.
That’s why in this article, we’ll be taking a look at how to speed up the login process when using Memberium for ActiveCampaign.
Speed up the Login Process on Membership Site
If you have login automation enabled, then it would mean that the particular automation will run on your users each time they log in to the site.
If this is not required, and you want to speed up the login process, then you might want to skip using this option.
You can find this option from Memberium > Settings > Login tab.
Maximum Contact Cache Age
Using the maximum contact cache age option can speed up the logins, as it would cache the contact records. You can find this option from Memberium > Settings > Performance tab.
Caching can be used to store this data in the WordPress database for a set amount of time so that Memberium does not have to contact ActiveCampaign each time a user logs in. The advantage of this is improved login speed.
The default value is 0, which means no caching; the contact records will refresh on every login.
If you’d like to cache the data for one hour, you would set the Cache Age to 3600. To cache the data for one day, you’d set it to 86400.
However, note that using this option means that the user won’t be synced each time upon login due to caching.
Enable Turbo Mode
By default, Memberium syncs the contact data from ActiveCampaign upon each login.
When the Turbo mode option is enabled and your users/members login to the site, Memberium will not sync their record with ActiveCampaign. It basically disables the login sync that happens each time upon user login.
The benefit of Disabling the Login Sync and Enabling Turbo Mode is that your login times can decrease significantly. Login time is reduced since Memberium does not need to contact ActiveCampaign to pull down the user’s record. Memberium will instead use a locally cached copy.
You can find the Turbo Mode option by going to the Memberium > Settings > Login tab.
Deactivate Plugins slowing down the site
Having too many plugins can also slow down the site. That’s why it’s a good idea to only have those plugins which are really needed on the site and deactivate the ones that are not important.
For example, since you’re already using Memberium for ActiveCampaign, you won’t need the “ActiveCampaign” plugin for site tracking. You’d just need to enable the ActiveCampaign tracking option from Memberium > Settings > Page Handling. This is just one example, and you can try to limit the usage of active plugins on the site.
Opt for a faster hosting plan
A good web host with a fast plan would help improve not just the login speed but the overall speed of the site.
