    To restrict a community site access I’m trying the WP-Members plugin. It works fine with pages and posts, but I can’t find any option to restrict a post category. Likewise, I have some pages that are templated. So, is there a way to restrict templated pages?

    At this time, category restriction is not supported in the plugin.

    Weird, because wp-member.com states that the plugin protects posts, pages, and categories. But I still note it’s a very well done plugin. Thanks for answering.

    wp-member.com is not related. It’s a commercial (and not open source) product that hijacked the name of an existing plugin.

    Still on the subject. I solved partially the problem simply inserting an html code in the first dialog at Dialogs section of WP-Members Settings (visible only when the visitor isn’t logged in), pointing all links in the site menu to the home page. I know, it’s a very poorly improvised hack, once if the visitor knows the address of a particular page, he’ll be able to access it.

    I would be grateful if somebody could bring a cleaner alternative.

    Concluding, I thank myself for the obvious answer… as clearly explained under the first faq at butlerblog.com/wp-members/wp-members-faqs/, simply insert the <!–more–> tag in the post or page with restrict access.
