Features of the Member RSS Add On

  1. Member-Specific RSS Feeds: The Add On that your RSS feeds, including those generated by plugins like Blubrry PowerPress, display content specific to each member’s subscription level. The plugin securely displays content exclusive to members and filters out non-member content.
  2. Enclosure Protection: Keep exclusive member content, such as mp3 URLs for a podcast, safe from unauthorized access.
  3. Unique MemberKey Access: Each member receives a distinct memberkey, enabling them to access their specialized member RSS feed. Every member receives content tailored to their membership level.
    • Example: Your feed URL with a member key would look like this: https://www.yoursite.com/feed/podcast/?memberkey=58efacdc83d88e3edf8e31f4b4f5806e
  4. Account Page Integration: Once the plugin is activated, a unique RSS feed link, complete with the memberkey, is made available in the Member Links section of each user’s Membership Account page. This guarantees that members only see content relevant to their subscription.
  5. Customizable Links: Have the freedom to add or subtract as many RSS feed links as desired.
  6. Future-Proof Security: While the current version doesn’t prevent URL sharing, future iterations aim to address this. By monitoring the use of keys, you can promptly address any misuse.
  7. Extend with Filters: For those looking to add more members only RSS feeds, check out the pmpromrss_feeds filter (example below).

How the Member RSS Add On Works

When you activate the Member RSS Feed plugin, it creates a link under the Member Links section of the Membership Account page.

PMPro Member Links using RSS Feeds

This special members-only feed will only contain membership restricted content which that user has access to, and filter out the rest (including unprotected posts). The default feed includes only WordPress posts (post_type = ‘post’).

If the memberkey is not attached to the link, the normal WordPress RSS recent posts feed will be shown.

Additional member-only RSS feeds can be added with the pmpromrss_feeds filter. Here’s an example:

Action and Filter Hooks

The following actions and filters are available in this Add On:

//show links to RSS feeds (format is title => url)
$feeds = apply_filters( 'pmpromrss_feeds', array( 'Recent Posts Feed' => get_bloginfo( 'rss_url' ) ) );

This is a Plus Add On.

Plus Add Ons are included in all Plus or higher premium membership plans.
