Content Control – User Access Restriction Plugin

Description

Content Control is a lightweight and powerful plugin that allows you to take complete control of your website’s content by restricting access to pages/posts to logged in users, specific user roles or to logged out users.

The plugin also enables you to restrict access to certain parts of a page/post using shortcodes e.g [content_control]Logged in content[/content_control]

Lastly, the plugin allows you to control the visibility of each sidebar/footer widget by selecting who can view each widget (everyone, logged out users, logged in users, specific user roles).

Full Feature List

Content Control allows you to do the following:

  • Restrict access to pages/posts to logged in/out users or specific user roles
  • Restrict access to media, tags, categories, format to logged in/out users or specific user roles
  • Display a custom message to users who do not have permission to view the content
  • Redirect users who do not have permission to view the content to login page (redirects back to page/post after login), website homepage or custom URL
  • Display certain content on a page/post to logged in users only
  • Display certain content on a page/post to specific user roles
  • Display certain content on a page/post to logged out users
