Use partial content protection feature to hide parts of a post or a page. You can do this using DAP shortcodes

Key Features: content

Use the Sneak Peek feature to display teaser content. Content above the more tag is displayed to all but the full post can only be viewed by logged-in members with access.

Tag your WordPress content (pages, posts). Setup tag rules. For e.g., page tagged as "silver", can be accessed by anyone with access to products - silver, gold or platinum! 

Key Features: content

Create a SMART Tag-Driven Membership site!

Key Features: tags

Activity-Based Tags:

  • Assign Tags:  You can assign (and/or remove) customer tags when any of these events happen: Purchase Tags, Lead Magnet Tags, Course & Lesson Completion Tags, Recurring Payment Tags, etc. You can create different tag rules for different products. 
  • Cart Abandonment Tags:  Assign (and/or remove tag) when users abandon your cart and do not complete purchase.
  • Failed Purchase Tags:  Assign tags when users try to make a purchase but it fails for any reason.

Tag Automations:  

  • Trigger email automation when users get a new tag or lose a tag.  Notify your email platform such as ActiveCampaign, ConvertKit, Drip, AWeber, MailChimp, MailerLite etc (or notify your zap)
  • When members get a specific tag, you can give users access to a product in DAP, or remove their access from a product.
  • You can trigger email automations using DAP's built-in autoresponder. Send users an email (configurable in DAP) when they get a specific tag (or lose one).  

Protect Content using Tags:

You can protect your content using tags. Just assign a tag to your content (pages, posts) and setup your tag-based content protection rules in DAP!

For e.g:
1. Any page/post tagged as [Silver], can be accessed by Silver, Gold or Platinum levels.
2. Any page/post tagged as [Gold], can be accessed by Gold or Platinum levels.
3. Any page/post tagged as [Platinum], can be accessed by Platinum membership levels.

So you no longer have to protect each piece of content under different products. Once you've set up the tag rules, when you create any new piece of content, just give it the right tag.
