  • Resolved Smoman



    Excellent plugin. I have everything working, but it looks like it should show the tab and when they click it gives them a message they need to register etc…When I enable security on a page for registered users. The tab goes away completely and non registered users cannot see it. I would like them to see it, but know you have to sign up. Not sure if I am missing something.

    Thanks for your time and hard work,

    Just so I understand, this is what you’re experiencing (?)…

    You have some pages in your navigation menus, but when you protect those pages, they disappear. You want the pages to remain visible, even though they’re protected, so that you can prompt the user for a registration.

    That’s definitely possible. Essentially, you just need to a) set up some custom WordPress menus and b) disable PSC’s menu filtering option. You need to use custom menus so that you can selectively choose what pages to display, and then disable menu filtering so that PSC won’t automatically hide anything for you.

    Here’s more detailed instructions:

    1. From your admin, go to Appearance > Menus and create a new Custom Menu. Create the menu exactly how you want it to appear.
    2. Go to Settings > Page Security and uncheck the option for “Enable Menu Filtering”. With this option turned off, PSC will no longer hide protected content from menus.

    This is definitely a scenario I’ve experienced myself and, while the above solution is a little roundabout, it works. The next update (1.5, not today’s 1.4 release) is going to include an overhaul of the Restrict Access sidebar – and “Allow in menus” is one of the new options on the todo list. Hopefully the custom menu workaround will do the trick in the mean time, though.

    And thanks for the support. It means a lot! 🙂
