Page Restrict

Description

Restrict certain pages or posts to logged in users

This plugin will allow you to restrict all, none, or certain pages/posts to logged in users only.

In some cases where you are using WordPress as a CMS and only want logged in users to have access to the content or where you want users to register for purposes unknown so that they can see the content, then this plugin is what you are looking for.

Simple admin interface to select all, none, or some of your pages/posts. This now works for posts!

EXCELLENT PLUGIN

Thank you for this outstanding plugin. I am not sure if you still maintain the plugin or not but I would just like to say that it works beautifully. If you do maintain the plugin at all, please help me with a small function to block access to custom post types or alternatively, posts with a specific permalink structure such as: http://www.example.com/invoices*.

But either way, your plugin is brilliant.

Dont install on WP4.7+

Hi. I’ve been experiencing the below error continually for weeks while editing pages/posts:

*Connection lost. Saving has been disabled until you’re reconnected. We’re backing up this post in your browser, just in case.

I’ve been troubleshooting that and trying to determine the cause. It’s been massively frustrating and has caused huge time loss, I mean hours & hours….

Anyway, today I discovered the cause. The errors only occurred during page/post edits. Forum posts indicated to me it must be a clashing plugin, or badly written plugin, or one what never closed all connections to the MySQL DB. Anyway I found an alternative to this & installed/enabled that. Then disabled Page Restrict – ET VOILA!! EUREKA! That has stopped the error.
I would be very careful if you install this. Check it stability & if you get “Connection lost…” messages, you’ll now know the cause!

Hope this helps a few of you diagnose your problems & also stop some people going through the hell I have for months.

Best of luck!
