I’m building up my website using the ‘Membership’ plugin to restrict access to non-subscribers. My premium content is made up of articles which are indexed using keywords (categories) and logged-in with dates/time.
I’m finding out that — though I do manage to ‘block’ out entirely the content (articles) using the Access Level (negative & positive) rules — there is still a slight loophole which I’d like to close to shield absolutely the premium content from the view of normal (non-subscribed) ‘visitors’: the ‘Calendar’ widget still appears.
I’ve chosen to have the ‘category’ and ‘calendar’ widgets in the margins to enable people to search & retrieve news by date and/or keywords. Whilst all the categories are indeed invisible (ticked in negative rules), the calendar continues to appear for visitors and this means that the days where news is published are highlighted.
A visitor hovering over any of those dates can see the titles of the articles (to which he doesn’t have access, but still: those titles provide information which I’d like shielded from non-subscribers). If a visitor clicks on a date however, he gets an error message (which is fine by me) but the fact remains he can gather info just by reading the title of articles…
I hope I’ve made some sense… To sum it up, my question:
How do I create a (eg. negative) rule in Membership which I can apply so that for instance visitors cannot see ‘pages’, ‘categories’, ‘posts’ etc… but ALSO widgets – and in particular the ‘Calendar’ widget which provides a loophole of sort to viewing part of the restricted content (specifically the title of posts if one/visitors hover over a specific day)?
Thanks for any help on that one!
