Support » Plugin: WP JV Post Reading Groups » Need to show posts in a LIST format that members have been granted access to

  • I’m using your plugin to restrict member content, but the way users are supposed to access private posts is awkward; hoping you can help me with that.

    Here’s what I want to do…


    1. Member A signs up to read my blog.

    2. Member B signs up to read my blog.

    3. I create a page called, “Posts” that is based on the blog template, where all blog posts are listed.

    4. I create 6 blog posts. All marked as “private” in view settings, so these posts do not come up in search. But they can display on the “Posts” page I have created, in a list format.

    5. I can give permissions on each post via your plugin, “WP JV Post Reading Groups” for specific members to read specific posts, via creating “reading groups” that I add members to. So now I give Member A permission to view posts 1, 2, and 3. I give permissions to view posts 4, 5, and 6 to Member B.

    6. In the page I created to list blog posts….keep in mind that each post I make is listed there. BUT I do not want the posts I designated as “viewable” to Member A to appear to Member B in the list of posts to click on. I want these posts to essentially be invisible to others that cannot read them. Not just in content, but in listing of each post alongside each other.

    Your plugin I’m using to restrict viewability to certain members works great — if you always have the direct link handy. They can read content of a private post…but they cannot see that very same post they have permission to read come up in search. Or mentioned in a list of posts they have access to.

    Specific members with view permissions on specific posts works with your plugin.

    But it does not allow a private post to be viewable in the listing of available posts to read for those particular members — it only allows those specific members to view a specific post’s CONTENT.

    Not its listing.

    I’m willing to do WHATEVERRR it takes, lol, to accomplish my goal. Just please let me know if there is a etting I’m missing, or if there’s a PHP or CSS workaround, or even another plugin to pair with yours accomplish this.
