Some websites find it beneficial to only show the content of the directory to other members of the directory.  We have a very simple way available in order to make this sort of functionality active.

There are 2 main areas you can protect and set as MEMBERS ONLY:
  • Web Pages / Display Options / Members-Only Page
  • Member Posts / Always Show Content


Find out below how to activate these settings for different needs.




Web Pages / Display Options / Members-Only Page

A login will be required to view the page selected.

Go to: CONTENT >> EDIT WEB PAGES  >> Select the page that will only be available to members:




On the right sidebar settings, check the "Protect This Page" and select the Only Allow Members so non-members can not see this page. Finally, click on "Save Web Page". Next is the option to select which members get to see the page:


Now select which type of members are allowed to see this certain page:



The pages that are already members only will have this show up:





Member Posts / Always Show Content

A login will be required to view the post selected.

Go to: CONTENT >> EDIT POST SETTINGS >> Select the member post that will only be available to members:




On the first tab "General Settings" choose the option that best fits for the website:



  • No Selection - This is the default option, it will show the complete content to everyone.

  • Protect Search Results - This option will not allow members that do not have access to this feature see the results or the details of the post.
  • Protect Detail Pages - This option will show the search results and on the member's profile but if they wanted to see the details of the post it will not allow them unless signed in.



The Member Listings post type will have additional options:



  • Protect Search Results - This option will not allow members that do not have access to this feature see the results or the details of the post.

  • Protect Profile Page - This option will show the search results but it will not allow non signed in members to see the member's profile page. 

  • Protect Contact Page - This option will make the contact page a members only page, members will need to be logged in to contact a member within your site.

  • Protect Write a Review Page - This option will make the submit a review option for a member's profile a members only page.



When a post is set to members only, they are easy to identify:
