Memberful's WordPress plugin allows you to restrict access to an entire post or page through its Restrict Access metabox. If you want to protect certain parts of the content in a post or page, you can use our shortcodes instead.

Access shortcodes via the Memberful editor button
This article shows all our shortcodes. The Memberful button in the classic WordPress editor (not available in the new Gutenberg block editor) allows you to add the most common shortcodes to any page or post. The other shortcodes can be added manually.

Restrict access with shortcodes
We recommend using the Memberful restrict access metabox to restrict access to content. If you want to protect certain parts of the content in a post or page, you can use shortcodes. You'll first need to fetch the integration slug from your Memberful dashboard. The slug for a plan is shown inside the summary box on the right side of the screen when editing that plan.
The slug for a download is shown at the bottom of the page when editing that download.
Here's a basic example of requiring a subscription to the Big Awesome plan to see the protected content.

Require the Super Rad download to see the protected content.

Specify multiple plans or downloads
If you want to specify multiple subscription plans or downloads, use a comma separated list. The content will be shown if the customer is subscribed to any of the plans, or owns any of the downloads you specify.
This will only be visible to members who have either the "Big Awesome" subscription, or the "Cool Hair" subscription.
This will only be visible to members who have purchased either the "Super Rad" download, or the "Rock On" download.
Alternatively, you can restrict the content to members that have a subscription to any plan:
This will be visible to members that have a subscription to any plan.
Show content to customers who haven't yet purchased
If you want to show potential customers a message encouraging them to subscribe to a plan, use the
Shown to users who haven't purchased the "Big Awesome" subscription.
Or for a download, use
Shown to users who haven't purchased the "Super Rad" download.
You can also show content to those that don't have a subscription to any plan:
This will only be visible to users that don't have any subscriptions.
