Content Control – User Access Restriction Plugin

Description

Content Control by Jungle Plugins 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

Reviews

Good plug-in and on time assistance

This plug-in is well made and easy to setup, after a first hurdle with a puny bug the developer brought a timely answer with a quick fix and ultimately released a big update solving many delayed issues with the rest of his plug-in users. Recommended and thank you again, i will be back to try another of Jungle Plugins’ solutions later, hope things work as good as this time. Cheers!

Yes, that’s what you need!

Working flawlessly with Virtue theme, lightweight, simple, but powerful. After a day spent trying out several plugins, I can say: thats what you need, if you looking for a simple, easy to use, but perfectly scalable tool. Five stars. Oviously. Thank you!
