Automatic Page Publishing
MemberGate fully automates the creation and publishing of web pages - select either 'add' or 'edit' content, type in your text and click 'create'. Using the master rules you specified in site setup, MemberGate creates and formats the page for you, and provides you a preview of the results. To publish, simply click the 'activate' button. If you want to include graphics in your pages, MemberGate automatically uploads and places images where you want them. Page creation authority is based on roles, allowing you to control the approval process for new pages. Pages can also be set to 'hold until' a specific release date, and 'purged' upon a future date. Pages can be created in a public or member area, within any department on the site. Pages can also be created in offline text editors (i.e. MS Word) or html editors and pasted directly into MemberGate.

Automatic Page Archiving
As your site grows, MemberGate automatically places the older pages into the searchable archives of your site. This way, as the older pages fall off the portal and department page index screens, they can still be quickly found by either clicking the 'view more headlines' button on all portal pages, or doing a keyword search on the archives.

Roles Based Security
MemberGate uses a 'roles' based security system that allows you to define the role or authority of those that visit or contribute to your site. This means you can have members, content providers, department managers, assistant site managers, site managers, and more - each with clear restrictions on what they can and can't do on your site. The roles based system is designed so that when members sign in, they can only see and access the material and options that are within their scope of authority.

Members and Public Areas
With MemberGate, you can have an unlimited number of 'departments' and each of the departments can be in either the public or members only area of your site. Within each department, you can place an unlimited number of content pages - and access to the content pages is controlled by the department settings (members only or public viewing). You can instantly change any department and all its content from members only to public status (and visa a versa). Each department is customizable as to which member plans can access it. For example if you had 3 member plans, you can specify which department(s) each of those plan's members can access. "Department A" could allow plan 1, 2, 3 - "Department B" could be for plan 2 and 3 only while "Department C" could allow plans 1 and 3 etc.

Referrers Report
The referrers report shows you instantly where visitors to your site are coming from. This makes it easy to see who's linking to your site, and how many visitors to those other sites have clicked those links to come to your site. The referrers report is available by day, month, or year, and includes a link to the referring page, and the number of times it was used to bring traffic to your site.

Suspicious Activity Report
With any members only site, you have to wonder what happens if a subscriber decides to share his private username and password with the world. What if he posts this information in a news group and you have 10,000 non-members who use this valid username/password to get in? With MemberGate, that won't be a problem, because the moment that two people try to log in using the same username/password, the account is instantly locked, and you are alerted via email of suspicious activity. This information also appears in the daily suspicious activity report, and is also recorded in the members history file. This instant detection and prevention of password sharing can save you thousands in lost revenue and abused bandwidth.

Search Phrase Report
The Search Phrase report quickly reveals what words or phrases visitors to your site are searching for after they come to your site. This valuable information shows you what visitors are looking for, and what words or phrases they use to search. This information can help you decide what kind of content to place on your site, what words or phrases to use in your sites meta tags (for search engine placement), and what words or phrases are the 'hot buttons' of your visitors.

Daily Page Stats
The Daily Page Stats reports quickly shows which are the most popular pages on your site, and how often each page has been visited today. Knowing this can help you determine which content is the most appealing to visitors (as well as which pages have little or no appeal). This allows you to concentrate you page creation efforts on the kinds of pages your visitors want to see.
