    Hi Jason,

    Can you tell me if it’s possible to block a page from public view? What I mean is, to be able to block it from everyone accept those who are registered and logged in.

    Thanks,

    Liz

    Hi Liz,

    Again, this won’t really have anything to do with the theme, but this is a fairly popular thing if you search around. You can probably find some free plugins that do that if you search for terms like, “restrict content.”

    I’ve never personally used it, but the one I’ve heard the most about is Restrict Content Pro. It’ll allow you to handle signing people up, and selling access to certain pages, or whatever. Or, you can use it to simply restrict content through other criteria.

    Thanks, Jason.

    I did go to restrictcontentpro since I started this topic. I guess I thought the plugin was just for members of the website. I didn’t realize that it could also block certain pages from public view. And it did.

    HOWEVER, it seems to only block pages and posts, NOT the dashboard (the general page that Shows “Activity” and “WordPress News”) or the profile page. That’s right. My client doesn’t want his members to have access to the profile page.

    I actually wrote about this awhile back:

    And I’m sure if you search you can find more info or probably even a plugin for it. I would imagine you’re not the only one wanting to do this.

    So, if I’m understanding this correctly, I just replace ‘edit_posts’ with ‘subscribers’. Correct?

    No, you wouldn’t change anything. The code is saying if the person CANNOT edit_posts, then don’t allow access; this would include subscribers. The exclamation point ! means NOT in coding.
