TIP: What Are Shortcodes

Shortcodes add dynamic content to your site via a small piece of code. Learn more: Shortcodes - How To Use

Note: this feature was introduced in version 1.5.4.

You can restrict part of content and customize the message for not allowed users with HTML using special form.

Navigate to Admin Dashboard → CM Site Access Restriction Pro → Settings.

Under the Shortcodes tab you can see the form where you can edit the message using the Denied text HTML form. Don't forget to click the Save button to save the changes.

To restrict the content and display this message you need to use the shortcode [access] with the parameter  deniedtext_html. You need also use the parameter that will define, what type of users are not allowed to see the content.


The following shortcode will restrict your content and will be seen only for logged-in users, so the guest users will see the message that you put to the Denied text HTML form:

[access login="1" deniedtext_html]Here will be displayed the message from the form[/access]

Navigate to the page or post, or anything else you need to restrict, and put the opening and closing shortcodes where it's needed:
