PrivateContent – Multilevel Content Plugin
The WordPress membership solution
PrivateContent is probably the easiest way to create a dedicated users database into your wordpress website. Seamlesslay 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.
Google Analytics integration
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!
Rock-solid restrictions engine
One of 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. Give a try:
Leave posts searchable and indexable but hide contents within. Users not matching your restriction parameters will see alternative contents:
- A warning box
- An excerpt of post contents
- An excerpt + warning box
- Custom contents, set globally
- just nothing! 😛
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.
PrivateContent integrates also in your menus: allowing selective menu items restriction directly from the wordpress user interface.
Are you logged in? Try checking privateContent submenu: a new item is shown!
Gutenberg became the default WordPress editor. PrivateContent is so deeply integrated in it, that you can selectively restrict ANY Gutenberg block in your pages!
Yes, for real: you can restrict ANY widget/column/section in the Elementor builder. This is probably the most surgical control you could have on your website contents!
Need a complete protection? Why lose time.
PrivateContent can hide any site content to visitors (search engines included) with just one click!
You can also choose to only lock post comments!
Do you have a WooCommerce shop and want to show products price only to logged users? In a couple of cicks you are covered!
A custom text will be shown instead of the price and the product won’t be purchasable.
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!
Users private page
Each PrivateContent user has got by default an own private page. This true reserved area is reachable only by him.
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.
The WordPress User Sync
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 to use WP-based systems. From post comments to WooCommerce or BuddyPress!
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!
A true form framework
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.
- Sorting fields
- Adding fields icon and placeholders
- Taking advantage of the HTML5 validation engine
- Inserting contents among fields
- Using a disclaimer for TOS or privacy acceptance
- Setting password strength patterns and lengths
- Taking advantage of honey-pot or reCAPTCHA anti-span systems
- Setting password strength patterns and lengths
- Assigning users to a default category or using the related field
- Exteding available fields through User Data add-on or API
Extreme flexibility also on the design side: two fully-responsive layouts (one-column and fluid) and no-label + bottom border options.

User Data add-on pushes the framework to the maximum, implementing combo-options and conditional fields!
Custom skin builder
Plugin comes with three preset form skins (minimal, light, dark) adapting to any theme, immediately.
You can also customize them, changing only few details. Or maybe you prefer creating your own unique style: using colors, font size and family, setting field borders and padding as well as border radius.
