Ways of Content RestrictionCM Site Access Restriction Demo
This page will tell you about the methods of how you can restrict the content
There are 4 ways to restrict the content:
And a few more restrictions:
Let's consider them all one by one.
Restrict all pages of a certain post type
The plugin supports restricting standard post types and post types used by third-party plugins.
You can configure the restriction for each post type in plugin settings under the Post Types tab. You can see the example of a few listed post types on the screenshot below.
Restrict the specific page using the metabox
Each page/post has a metabox called Site Access Restriction. It allows you to restrict the specific page or override the general settings. For example, if all pages by this post type are restricted, you can change the restriction type or unset the restriction.
Restrict the specific page using a URL filter
URL Filters work similar to the method with metabox. Here you can specify the URL which you want to restrict or override global settings. And using this method, you can restrict the whole categories, by adding asterisk (*) after the URL. It means that all sub-pages related to the specified URL will be restricted too.
Example of using that kind of URL:
