Built-In Protected Members Only Content

What is Members Only Content, Members Only content allows you to create special content that only your members can see.

all post in the members-only content area is protected.

Only if a user is logged in they will be able to access, the default access level is a subscriber for all content in the “members-only content” section.

members-only content does not affect shortcode content restrictions, this feature allows for full content protection.

New in 4.5

  • Present Users who are not logged in with a link to “Register or Login Here”,
  • Redirect Users to current page after login.
  1. Create a Post or Page or protect existing content.
  2. Place the shortcodes around the content you wish to protect.

New Shortcode Options Use With Options

  • display=”Custom text” change the message for none logged in user (default: You Must be Logged in to view this content)
  • linkto=”/wp-admin/” Link to a specific page, recommended usage would be to use /wp-admin/ without http://www this is very good practice in case if you are using SSL or custom subdomain, Note that this will also disable Auto redirect (default: WordPress Login Page)
  • linktext=”Click Here” change the text for the link (default: Register or Login Here)

Example Shortcodes

Premium Content Here

With Options

[membersonly display="Login To Download" linkto="/wp-admin/" linktext="Login Here"] protected content here [/membersonly] 

the user will then have to be logged in to view.

This is an amazing plug in. Shortcodes allow teaser content if you only want certain sections of the page to be public and shortcode can be edited to say what you want it to or provide a redirect link to log in. A major plus about this is you can use it with ProfileGrid membership platform because it doesn’t have a user role option for all members to restrict specific pages to a certain tier of members. Its so simple and a very crucial feature plus its free. If you give one star there’s something wrong with you, this plug in rocks.
