How to Set Up the Resource Directory

A resource directory can be set up on your MemberGate site to maintain listings of any information that you would like to make available on your site. The resource directory can be set so only members can review or so non-members can see it as well. 

The resource directory can be found on your site at www.yoursite.com/resources/index.cfm
