Edit membership options from the product/page/post view

From the page/post/product edit view, you will be able to customize and override some of the membership options. You will find them all grouped in the Membership options box.

Let’s see which options are available.

1. Include in a plan

You can choose to include any type of content to your memberships: a page, a post, a product or any other media uploaded on to the site. For each type of content in your site you can set the membership plan it is associated to, regardless of general configuration settings of the plan together with other membership options.

To do that, log in as admin to your site and open the page (or post or product) and select the membership plan you want to add it to from the Membership options metabox.

Include this content in the following plans: choose the plans to include this content in.

For the X plan, make it available (you will see this option replicated for every plan entered above):

  • immediately
  • after X days from signup: you can choose to make this content available to users only after a specific number of days since the purchase date.

2. Credits

Here you can override the number of credits needed to download this item.

Please, consider that this option is only available if it’s a downloadable product and you’ve previously enabled the credits option from the General options > Shop options.

3. Redirect link

If in the General options tab you’ve chosen to redirect non-members to a specific link, you can however override this link from the product/post/page with a custom URL.

Redirect URL from General options
Redirect URL from General options
Redirect non-members
Redirect URL from post/product/page details

4. Alternative content for non-members

You can override here the alternative content that will be shown to non-members who visit this page/post/product. You can either type in a custom text from the built-in editor or load one of the previously created contents.

  • Enter alternative content text
    Alternative content from product/post/page
  • Load an alternative content
    Alternative content metabox

Please, refer to this page for more details about how to create and customize the alternative content.

5. Protected files

Finally, from the Membership options box, you will also be able to add files that are linked to this specific product/page/product but that will only be available to members of selected plans.

Enable the option and then add the file URL (you can either add the URL or upload the file right from this page).

Then, select the membership plans for which this media file will be available.

Protected files

To show the download button in the post/product/page, please, make sure you add the [membership_protected_links] shortcode in the content. No worries, it will be hidden to non-members.

For example, you will be able to create a blog post that is visible to everyone (members and non-members), but only members of the Golden plan will be able to download a file attached to it.

Media files

Also media files can be included in one or more membership plans. Yet, this is usually done using the Protected files option so they can be attached to a post or a page.

Yet, if you want to add a specific media file to a membership plan, without including it in a specific post, you can edit permissions directly from the media settings. So, go to Media, select the file and you will be able to choose the membership plans it is enabled for and if this media has to be delayed.
