PrivateContent is a powerful, yet easy, solution to boost wordpress, turning it into a true multilevel membership platform.
Complete users management, a modern form framework and an unique engine to restrict any part of your website. Everything without coding skills!
It is also GDPR compliant!
Simply the fastest and best way to get started, always up to date.
PrivateContent is probably the easiest way to create an users database into your wordpress website. Seamlessly integrated, is based on user categories: then no more basic roles, you can virtually have unlimited levels!
Each user can be assigned to one or more categories giving you the maximum flexibility possible, this means complete freedom in creating simple or complex patterns to properly store them and eventually restrict your site contents.
The plugin has got also some extra features to help you manage users with ease, such as category filter, data sorting and an internal advanced search. Gives also the ability of deactivate users, to keep them in the database but deactivating accesses to reserved areas.
Finally you can export user lists in Excel (.xls) or CSV format, import them using a CSV file or also import existing WordPress users!
This is really useful having to deal with large existing databases.
Through your website you can reach millions and create a database of thousands of users. Is hard to understand what people like though.
PrivateContent, through Google Analytics systems, has got a solution to this: allowing precise reports.
Each pageview, each login, logout, registration (and more, through add-ons) will be registered. You will be able to know exactly what users see. Also in real time!
The secret of any successful website is marketing: start tracking your users now!
One of main PrivateContent cores is surely contents restriction. A complete set of tools to satisfy your needs about contents management in relation to users subscription. Here’s what you can do:
A shortcode allowing you to hide specific page contents on the fly. You can choose to show a warning box or just hide data within. Is also possible to enable a login and a registration button to the lightbox engine, giving users an handy way to join your site.
Leave posts searchable and indexable but hide contents within. Users not matching your restriction parameters will see alternative contents:
This is the most powerful restriction you can use: totally removing elements from your website queries.
Blocked users won’t be even able to reach pages URL and will be redirected to a globally set page. For example, you won’t be able to reach this page, unless you are logged!
A client-side restriction that must be used to prompt users doing specific actions such as registering into your website. Once page is loaded, a persistent lightbox is shown on top of everything. Persistent means that can’t be removed, neither through web inspectors.
You can also choose to only lock post comments. Asking for registration a specifi user role!
PrivateContent integrates also in your menus: allowing selective menu items restriction directly from the wordpress user interface.
Need a complete protection? Why lose time.
PrivateContent can hide any site content to visitors (search engines included) with just one click!
And what about widgets?
Yeah, you can restrict also them, always directly in sidebar management’s page
But there’s even more: to speed up setup, restriction can be inherited! A restricted category will automatically affect child categories that will affect assigned posts that will affect child posts.
I this way entire areas of your website could be ready in just few seconds. And everything never worrying about who is restricted and who inherits what: a revolutionary restrictions wizard takes care of reporting current post or term status!
Indeed the most complete restriction toolset you can get today!
Each PrivateContent user has got by default an own private page. This true reserved area is reachable only by him. Plus, using an unique URL makes it really comfortable to be set in redirects: only contents are changed for each user.
This is an essential tool to privately communicate with subscribers and, obviously, you can also decide to disable it.
Check it or watch the screencast to see better understand how easy and effective is.
PrivateContent users can also be synced with wordpress users. What does it means? A mirror wordpress user will be strictly linked with PrivateContent one: same username, same password, same e-mail.
This turns into a huge advantage: not only users will be able to login through PrivateContent and WordPress forms, but also use WP-based systems. From basic thing as post comments to advanced ones as WooCommerce!
Also user private pages take advantages from sync: is now possible to enable private comments to directly communicate with users.
Everything without landing on WordPress admin panel or seeing WordPress elements. Take a look at this screencast to know more.
But there’s more: starting from v7, PrivateContent extends the sync system and gives you new ablities to use third part systems.
You can now use third-part forms to register users and edit their data. Everything will be collected and kept under the same interface.
A practical example? You are now able to use WooCommerce checkout to create PrivateContent users, without needing an intermediate registration form!
Any membership system requires regisrtation forms. PrivateContent does more, offering one of the most advanced form frameworks on the market!
You’ll be not only able to create unlimited registration forms, but do it in the way you prefer.
Extreme flexibility also on the design side: two fully-responsive layouts (one-column and fluid) and no-label + bottom border options.
Plugin comes with three preset form skins (minimal, light, dark) adapting to any theme, immediately.
But you can also create your own unique style: using colors, font size and family, setting field borders and padding as well as border radius. Everything directly from an handy user interface and with few clicks.
For example forms in live preview take color scheme from the minimal style, with a little touch of green on buttons to match with LCweb colors.
PrivateContent offers you 5 different ways to implement login form into your wordpress theme:
PrivateContent is also completely translatable as well as its add-ons! You will be able to localize everything just creating a .po file or using WPML or also Polylang.
