WordPress Pay Per Post Plugin (CMPPP) - How To - Restrict Content From Other Plugins (Custom Post Types)


Restricting Custom Post Types

Back to User Guide

In the WordPress Pay Per Post plugin, you can restrict any post type, even the ones managed by other plugins. This means that you can restrict content from other plugins if it uses said post types.

We Can't Guarantee Compatibility

Note that is a general rule. We cannot guarantee compatibility with all third-party plugins, as that involves code we don't control.

The technical requirements are:

  • Plugin must register post_types - To show the post type in Pay Per Post's settings.
  • Plugin's custom type must be editable from the Back-End - To enable the subscription metabox.
  • Plugin must use the "the_content" filter on the Front-End - Only this content will be restricted.

Choosing Post Types to Restrict

Head to WP-Admin → CM Pay Per Post → Settings page under the General tab → Post types section.

Choose which post types to support. 

This list fetches all post_types. If you can't find one related to a plugin, it means the plugin doesn't register its content as post_types.
