    Hi rvg400,

    You could easily customize your theme using is_user_logged_in() checks to see if the user is logged in before displaying certain content, and it's a simple method if you're comfortable with a bit of coding.

    However, I'd highly advise the Membership Lite plugin for that, as it takes care of all the coding and gives you an easy to use back-end interface to restrict access to your site.

    To help with that too, here's a great tutorial on how to setup and use it:

    Hope that helps!
