WP Ultimo – Restrict Posts or Pages Based on Site Plan

In this post, you’ll learn how to restrict posts or pages based on WP Ultimo site plan. This can be very useful when, for example, you create pages or posts with tutorials and instructions for your users to manage their multi-site platforms. It can also be very useful when you create forum pages or support pages.

We will do this very easily using the WordPress Conditional Post Restrictions plugin, which allows you to easily create conditional restrictions for any of the following post types:

  • Posts
  • Pages
  • Products
  • Courses
  • Events
  • Downloads
  • Recipes
  • Forums
  • Support tickets
  • And any other custom post type added by any WordPress plugin.

If you don’t use the WordPress Conditional Post Restrictions plugin, you have at least these options:

  1. You can program the conditional restriction by yourself, but you need vast programming knowledge.
  2. You can hire a professional programmer, but you’ll get one conditional restriction only, and are likely to pay a good amount of money.

Therefore, the WordPress Conditional Post Restrictions is your best option because you can easily apply any kind of conditional restriction without any programming knowledge. You just need a few clicks.

Once you install the plugin, you need to follow the steps in the sections below to restrict pages or posts based on the site plan.

5- How to redirect users to another URL when they try to access blocked posts or pages

  • Go to Settings > Post Restrictions in wp-admin.

Once there, you need to select these values:

  • Don’t apply restrictions for these user roles: You’ll see a list of user roles for which the conditions won’t be applied. By default, we will not apply restrictions for administrators, editors, and any user with the capability edit_others_posts.
  • What happens when the post is restricted? Redirect to URL
  • Redirect to this URL: Enter the upgrade or pricing page.
  • What happens when a category is restricted? Redirect to another URL
  • Redirect to another URL: Enter the upgrade or pricing page.
  • Save the changes.

After you apply these values, your users will be redirected to the selected URL every time they try to access blocked posts or pages.

That’s really simple!
