Support » Plugin: Membership & Content Restriction - Paid Member Subscriptions » Show LOCK icon next to subscribe content

  • Resolved ankeorum


    Dear Community,

    I have got a memberpress plugin under my website and I would like to show a lock icon next to the exclusive content, following some code found in this forum I created a PHP page under wp-content/plugins/memberpress-lock-icon/lock-icon.php which contains the following code:

     * Plugin Name: Lock-icon
     * Plugin URI: 
     * Description: Plugin to show the lock icon on subscription content
     * Version: 1.0

     * Filter to display a Locked Font Awesome Icon next to the Title of a Restricted Post/Page
    add_filter('the_title', 'pmsc_add_icon_next_to_restricted_post', 10, 2);
    function pmsc_add_icon_next_to_restricted_post($post_title, $post_id) {
        if (is_admin()) {
            return '';
        if (pms_is_post_restricted($post_id)) {
            //return '<i class="icon-lock" aria-hidden="true"></i>' . ' ' . $post_title;
    	return '<p>LOcked content</p>' . ' ' . $post_title;
        return $post_title;

    Originally was designed to show an icon but as that did not work I changed to show a paragraph.

    I do not know much about wordpress hence I am asking maybe so basic things. After creating that PHP file I only uploaded to the FTP server but did nothing on the wordpress administration panel. Is there something you should do to make it work? If not, can anyone assist? I just want to find the piece of code where it determines if the content is locked or not and add a keychain icon to the title (maybe a keychain icon hovering over the content image would be perfect but with the title is enough for now).

    Thank you in advance!

    Hey @ankeorum,

    So first things first, please remove the file you created from that location. Then create a folder inside wp-content/plugins/, you can call it custom-code and place your file in that folder.

    Afterwards, go to your Dashboard -> Plugins page and search for a plugin called Lock-icon and activate it. Then the code should actually run and add the icon/paragraph to the restricted posts titles.

    Check this out and let me know.
