Yes! A lapsed member should also be prompted to renew their membership when registering for an event. This should happen regardless of whether or not they have logged into their account. Right now, a lapsed member gets a suggestion to login, but not a suggestion to renew and, correctly, non of the registration types requiring active membership are available to them.
When you enter your email address to register for an event the system should:
1) Let your register as appropriate because it acknowledges you are an active member,
2) Prompt you to renew because your membership is lapsed and then let you register for the event,
3) Prompt you to apply for membership because you are not in the contact list, and then let you register for the event.
Right now, the system seems to do 1 and 3 BUT does not do 2.
I merged another very similar thread into this one, they should be solved together – the registration to multiple events should be simple and fast if possible. There are a number of suggestions in comments on how to achieve this.
