Registration Settings

By default, WordPress disables the registration process in the site. You can enable this feature if you want to allow your users for registration.

In the register page along with our shortcode, users will see something like the screenshot below. Registering new users is currently not allowed. But don't be afraid, you can enable it any time with clicking the simple checkbox. We have a shortcode for the registration settings named [userplace_register_form].

In the WordPress admin panel, there is a Settings Menu. Click the Settings> General. There is a label called Membership and on the right side of it, there is a checkbox labeled with Anyone can register. Click the checkbox icon and click save. Now your users can see the registration form and they can join your site at any time.

If this setting is not enabled, then our shortcode [userplace_register_form] won't work, and users will not be able to register into your website.

Content Restrictions Shortcode

The shortcode is used to restrict content for the member of different plans. If you want to restrict some contents of your post from specific members of your site, you can do that using this shortcode.

[restrict_content restricted_plans_id="commaa seperated plan id"] Your content to restrict [/restrict_content]

NB: Here plan id will be is of the plan which you created in your gateway settings.

If the content is restricted, then the user will see something like that

Menu Restriction

Public menu level restriction control is very easy to use. You can navigate to the wp-admin dashboard and then you can add the menu page with view level restriction.

Who can see this menu link?

You can specify the menu settings for Everyone, logged in or logged out users.

Restricted Roles

  • For the logged in users, you can also restrict the menu access for user current plan.

Here is the preview screenshot for a simple user registration page. This page is made with one of our shortcode [userplace_register_form]. Add this shortcode to a page and then in the menu select only for logged out users.

Then in your main menu area, it will show up for new user register into your site.
