Restrict access to your valuable content in WordPress

If you’ve got a WordPress site, odds are you’re creating content that provides value to your visitors. By default, any content you create in WordPress is available to everyone who visits your site. Giving valuable content for free to all of your visitors is great, but what if you want to restrict some content to specific users?

Managing Access to Content in WordPress

Besides password-protecting a page, WordPress doesn’t offer a way to limit access to content. And if you simply want to control access to content by role, level or profile field, then a full-featured membership plugin or CRM solution could take weeks to implement and blow up your budget.

Introducing the Uncanny Automator Restrict Content Addon.

The Restrict Content Addon makes it easy to restrict and manage access to your WordPress content.

Define access levels for your content

Create different access levels for your WordPress content based on what works for your business, school or organization.

Seamless integration with Uncanny Automator

Use access levels in your Automator recipes with new triggers, actions, tokens and conditions. Add or remove users from levels when they complete a trigger like making a purchase, submitting a form, or simply clicking a button. Or automatically run actions when users join or leave a level like enrolling them in a course, sending a record to a Google Sheet or even posting an announcement to a Facebook Group.

Manage access to pages, posts, products, courses and more

Manage access to your content on a post-by-post basis using flexible page access controls. Require users to be logged in, be in a certain access level or role, or even have specific custom user data.

Manage access by block or shortcode

Easily restrict access to specific content on a page using the included block options and shortcodes. Restrict the visibility of any block – access options are added to all blocks!

Seamless integration with WordPress

View and edit access levels easily from WordPress’ default edit user page.

How do I get the Restrict Content Addon?

The Restrict Content Addon is included free with every Uncanny Automator Business or Agency license.
