Restrict access to WordPress pages and posts

Memberful provides 100% secure server-side content protection with our WordPress plugin.

Choose who has access

Once you've installed the Memberful WordPress plugin on your site, you'll see a Memberful: Restrict Access box at the bottom of each page and post. Choose who should have access to your page or post by checking the appropriate box(es):

Choose who has access

Adding marketing content / teaser text

Add content to the Memberful marketing box like a Plan purchase link for non-members and a sign in link for existing members.

Add marketing content

Check out these customer examples for inspiration:

Add your members-only content

Add your members-only text, images, and video embed codes in the editor above the marketing content. Save your page or post.

Add member-only content

If a member is logged in to your site and has the correct access, they’ll be able to see the protected content in your page or post. If they don't have the right access or are logged out of your site—they'll see the marketing content.

To test the content protection on your site, log out of your WordPress administrator account or access the page from a private browser window.

Set default marketing content

To create default marketing content for all new posts and pages, check the box at the bottom of the editor.

Use the Bulk restrict access tool

If you want to bulk restrict access to all pages, all posts, all posts from a category, or all pages and posts, navigate to Settings → Memberful → Bulk restrict access tool. You must have at least one categorized, published post for a particular category to appear in the Bulk apply restrict access settings.

Bulk restrict access

Keep in mind that this is a one-time application of the settings.

Be careful when you bulk apply these settings as they will overwrite and replace any specified individual post or page restrict access settings.

To unprotect content on your site, uncheck all the Plans in Who has access? and select which content you'd like to be unrestricted — all pages, all posts, or all posts from a specific category. Then click Bulk apply.

Restrict access to Custom post types

Register your custom post types to use them with Memberful. Use our Wordpress functions if you need to apply restrictions across an entire Custom post type.
