Access Control

Protect Content by Post Type:

This feature allows you to safeguard your content by setting up a password or assigning specific user roles for access. Selecting a ‘Post Type’ lets you apply these restrictions across all content within that category. For instance, if you choose the ‘Post’ type, you can set a password that visitors must enter to view any post, or designate certain roles, such as ‘Subscriber’ or ‘Editor,’ to have exclusive access. This ensures that sensitive or premium content remains secure and accessible only to the intended audience.

Protect Content by Taxonomy:

Enhance the security of your website by controlling access to content based on its taxonomy—categories, tags, or custom taxonomies. By setting a password, you can restrict access to all items within a selected taxonomy, ensuring that only visitors with the password can view this content. Alternatively, you can assign specific user roles, like ‘Member’ or ‘VIP,’ to grant exclusive access to certain taxonomies. This feature is ideal for segmenting content access according to the audience, like members-only categories or topic-specific tags.

Popup Cookie Settings:

Customize the frequency of your site’s popup displays with our cookie expiration settings. You can select the time frame after which a popup reappears to the same user, ranging from ‘1 Day’ to ’30 Days’, or opt for ‘Per Session’ for it to appear every time the user starts a new session on your browser. A session is defined as the period of active interaction between the user and the website, which resets when the browser is closed. Adjusting these settings helps balance user engagement with non-intrusive browsing.
