The Shortcodes area of Restrict is used to generate the shortcodes which can be then used to restrict the content partially on the page or post.
So, from top to bottom, you will have the following areas:
Regardless of which of these criteria you elect to use, the usage of the shortcode is the same: simply copy the generated shortcode by clicking Copy button and then paste that shortcode to the page or post where you want to use it. The shortcode itself will be in a format similar to this:
[rsc_restrict_content allowed_to=”role” user_role=”administrator”]Your content here[/rsc_restrict_content]
It is important to understand that this shortcode actually consists of three equally important parts: the first part being [rsc_restrict_content allowed_to=”role” user_role=”administrator”] which is in a way an “opening” part of the shortcode, followed by Your content here which actually the content you will be restricting and lastly the “closing” part of the shortcode [/rsc_restrict_content] which goes at the end of the content you want to restrict. Depending on which criteria you have chosen for restriction, the “opening” part of the shortcode will be different while the “closing” part is the same for each criteria. Of course, in any case, you should replace Your content here with the content your actual content.
You can also add a custom message for the customers that do not meet the required criteria for the restricted content. So, if you want to display a custom message you should include it as an argument protected_message=”YOUR MESSAGE HERE”. As an example, your shortcode will look something like this then:
[rsc_restrict_content allowed_to=”role” user_role=”administrator” protected_message=”YOUR MESSAGE HERE”]Restricted content goes here[/rsc_restrict_content]
