This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



There are two commands

[ums_permission] and [usm_content]

Both look at the parameters passed in the short code to determine if that user can access content.

If the permission test fails – the following will not happen.

With [ums_permission] the page will not fully load. The ability to return to the home page still exists. Often wrapping the entire content with a [usm_content] tag would be more useful

with [usm_content] the content between the [ums_content] and [/usm_content] will be displayed

The parameter is called allowed – although any parameter starting with “allow” will work multiple
parameters can be passed. in the paramter is a string that holds either

the meta_key that if it exists permission is granted or the meta_key and meta_value conbimation seperated by an :


[usm_permission allowed=”employee”]
Any one that does not have the meta employee will not be able to load that page. A very minimal page loads.

[usm_content allowed = “employee” allow2 = “associate_class:1”]We roll the new site out for testing tuesday[/usm_content]

Any one that has the meta_tag of employee or meta_tag of associate_class and a value of 1 can see the text.
