[resolved] Progress related page access (2 posts)

    I have a client that wants to offer signed in users access to information led pages, these pages are broken down into two categories, then stages, then steps. The set up is easy enough, we'll set up post types then categories and posts.

    The issue we have is that a user should not be able to progress to the next step without checking a box at the end of the content on that page. Once they have checked that box it should be stored against their user profile. Once they complete all steps of a stage then they can access step one of the next stage.

    You start on Stage 1 > Step 1 - Step 5, once Stage 1 > Step 5 is completed you an access Stage 2 > Step 1.

    Can we use this plug in to achieve this? Could checking the box be classed as a reward and the achievement is the next step?

    Hi Peter,

    Achievements doesn't manage access permissions to content. You could use it to do that (you'd check to see if the user has unlocked a specific achievement) but as you'd be building out the access management features from scratch, it sounds like a lot of work.

    My gut feeling is that if you're primarily looking to control access to content, you should try to find a plugin that focuses on that. You can certainly gamify the experience with Achievements, but I would let each aspect be managed by dedicated plugins.
