404's and SEO (2 posts)

    Hi Guys,

    I'm looking at using this plugin for a subscription site where the product is an online program contained within pages/custom posts. I'm testing it on a dev site now/

    Do I understand correctly that if a user is not part of a group that has access to pages, that a 404 page not found is returned?

    What are the SEO implications for all these 404 errors? Is there a better way to handle this?

    Also, I'd like to make an excerpt or snippet of all 'private' pages content visible to non members and search engines (again for SEO and customer usability reasons). Is this something the plugin can do out of the box? I know there are the [groups_member] and [groups_non_member] shortcodes for this, but do they work within members only pages, I don't think so from what I've been able to work out so far.

    If you want show X content public and Y content private, by example for group Gold, you can use:

    [groups_member group="Gold"]
    content Y

    [groups_non_member group="Gold"]
    content X

    Be careful group's name is case sensitive !!!
