    Restrict User Access

    Add to List

    Restrict User Access is a fast and simple Membership Plugin for WordPress. Restrict your content in minutes, NOT hours.

    Quickly set up a paid membership site where your users can get different levels such as Platinum, Gold, or Free. Then, grant those levels when a user purchases a product in WooCommerce.

    πŸ‘₯ Unlimited Access Levels

    Users can have multiple levels, and you control how long memberships should last. When unauthorized users try to access restricted content, you can redirect them to another URL or display a teaser.

    Automatically add levels to your users based on something they do (Triggers) or something they are (Traits):

    • User Roles

    • Content with Tags, Categories, or Custom Taxonomies
    • Content written by select Authors
    • Page Templates

    Note that Access Conditions do not apply to content displayed in lists.

    Disable the admin bar for select levels and control what menu items members can see. You can even hide any widget area created with Content Aware Sidebars
