    Without seeing the actual content of the page, it’s hard to tell. Clearly, we’re misinterpreting some data, here. What is after that last line of text, a separator line of some sort, perhaps?

    If you look at the plain text of the page content, is anything there?


    PS – Thanks for your kind words. Hope we can get this figured out for you.

    Hello Lewish,

    Do you have a way for me to send you that content privately? (this content is confidential and I can’t have it pasted online for everyone to see).

    Also, is there a way to manually put a shortcode on the page to display the PDF? I am asking as this is a membership site and I have noticed that ‘subscribers’ can see the content of the PDF despite having enabled the ‘non public only’. If my members do not renew they stay a ‘subscriber’ so that means they could still see the pdf content. If there was a shortcode option I could avoid this by putting the shortcode in the ‘restricted content’ post. If that makes sense.

    Thank you again and I hope you have a nice weekend.

    Shortcodes are described on the support page for the plugin, here. Presently, we make no distinction between subscribers and members, as members are created by a plugin and not part of the base WP taxonomy. This may change in the future (or I may implement a way of displaying content for certain types of logged-in users).

    Essentially, you would tell the plugin not to automatically put an icon on any page, and then use the shortcode just for those pages where you want the icon to appear. However, if those pages already have unique IDs (as I suspect they might, unless there is only a portion of the page which is hidden from non-members), it might be easier to just use the admin panel to place the icon on those pages, instead of having to manually add the shortcode to each page/post.

    You may reach me directly at lgrosenthal AT 2rosenthals DOT com or by contacting me through my blog, referenced above. I’m happy to help as time permits.

    Cheers, and you have a good weekend, too.


    Hi Lewis, I sent you an email directly about this a couple of days ago. Hopefully you have received it 🙂

    Sorry for the extra-long delay, Fab…

    What other plugins do you have installed? At first, I thought this was a separator line. Now, I’m not so sure.

    In case it still interests anyone, this black bar happens to be on my pdfs after I activate the custom footer. Once I disable the custom footer, the bar disappears.

    Uhu, just discovered the tick “Footer Cell Fill”. Once disabled, the footer is displayed correctly. Sorry to shoot that fast, installed the plugin just 15 minutes ago…
