Members-Only Content

Required Plugins: Business Directory / CRM / Member Manager 
or Member Manager Pro (premium plugin)

Restrict Content

If you are using the required free plugins listed above, you have all the tools you need to restrict page & post content based on membership level and add member login to your WordPress website.

Step 1: Enable the members-only content feature

Go to Member Manager Options, select feature, click save.


Step 2: Create member login page

This is the public facing page that logged out users will see if they click on a page with members-only content. The member login page displays your login form.

  • Create a new page.
  • Add login shortcode: [cdashmm_member_login_form] 
  • Map page in Member Manager settings.
  • Add logout link to site menu.

Step 3: Create membership levels & set page / post permissions

First, create membership levels for your Business Directory. Note that membership levels will automatically be assigned to your membership form and can also easily be used to create a member benefits page.

Next, create a new page or add content to an existing page (or post) that you want to only make available to certain membership levels. 

Scroll to the bottom of the page to set content permission for the membership levels that will have permission to view the page or post.

Step 4: Setup no access notification

The information page should display the message that you want members to see if their membership level does not include access to the content on the page.

ie: “Your membership level does not include access to this content.”

  • Create a new page.
  • Add your message to members who do not have access to content at this level.
  • Map page on the Member Manager settings page.

For more detailed setup instructions, see settings pages below.
