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.
- Create a Post or Page or protect existing content.
- 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)
