Drip content

You can also set up drip content memberships so that members only receive access to certain parts of content at certain times in their membership, to prevent for example, someone signing up for 1 month and gaining access to all the content.

Setup content restrictions

Not only can you setup a content drip to determine which content becomes available at certain times, you can specify which content is off limits completely to certain membership types.

This is useful functionality for offering tiered membership plans.

For example, maybe your Bronze plan will be allowed access to your basic freebie content but the Silver and Gold plans will get access to exclusive content.
