[resolved] Positive rules don't lock unticked pages (5 posts)

    Quite simply as the title suggests.. after placing the 'pages' block into the 'positive' rules section and ticking the pages I want users to access. This should, as I understand it, only allow access to ticked pages and all other unticked pages should be "locked". Unfortunately this doesn't work, all site pages are accessible.

    The only workaround is to setup the opposite by placing the pages block into the negative rules section, ticking all pages and unticking the pages you want users to access. This is NOT ideal, because everytime a new page is created you have to update permissions for every 'access level' you've created :(

    Any reason positive access rules wouldn't be working?

    Frustrating because the concept of this plugin is excellent using positive rules, mediocre using negative ones.


  2. Hello there @bevels,
    I'm afraid that I can't replicate your issue.
    Are you by any chance using some sort of an aggressive caching plugin that would possibly interfere with this? Maybe a reverse proxy like Varnish, Squid, nginx or anything similar?
    If so, could you please try resetting it's cache and try that again?

    Hey again.

    Haven't heard from you in a short while so I just wanted to check in and see how things are going here?

    If you still need some assistance then by all means just reopen the thread or create another one for any new and related issues.

    Hey there,

    Sorry about the late reply.

    I don't have a caching plugin installed.

    Below is a list of the plugins I'm using. However my first guess was a plugin conflict so I tried disabling *most* of the obvious ones and it didn't seem to make any difference.

    Add new users
    Download manager
    Easy fancy box
    Event organiser
    GD BBPress Attachments
    LearnDash LMS
    Membership Premium
    NextGEN gallery
    NextGEN Public Uploader
    SB Welcome Email Editor
    Sexy Login

    I'd really like to get to the bottom of this.. any help is very much appreciated.

    I'll do my best to reply more promptly.


  5. @bevels do you also use negative rules in compination with your positive rules?
    If yes, then you should know that negative rules overrule positive rules...

    We'll need some more info on the actual configuration of your access levels and subscriptions.
