If you’re new to Paid Memberships Pro, you may be wondering what settings are available to restrict access to members-only content on your site. This video extends our documentation on Controlling Members-Only Content and provides a quick tutorial to familiarize yourself with a few methods to lock down your posts, pages, and categories.
Control your content.
Paid Memberships Pro is a WordPress Plugin that allows you to add Membership functionality to your website. One primary application of our plugin is to allow users to signup for a membership level in order to gain access to specific, restricted members-only content.
On April 11th and 12th from 11am to 3pm EDT we will host a two-day online seminar on using BuddyPress with PMPro.
We will field questions on using the two plugins via live video stream and offer hands-on help as you set up BuddyPress. Join the whole seminar or pop in for an hour or two. Our goal is to help as many of you as possible to make full use of these plugins and learn how you are using BuddyPress so that we can improve our platform.
Learn how to simplify a complex structure of over 150 levels into a manageable 3-level membership site.

We want to extend a big thank you to our team member Travis Lima for recording a new Installation and Initial Setup Video. Our previous video was terribly out of date and many features of the dashboard have been updated since that video was recorded.
Many of our customers use Paid Memberships Pro to move from a service, training or consulting business into a product-based business.
If you’re currently on this journey or considering a change, watch Jason’s presentation from WordCamp Atlanta to learn about our transition from web consultants to the owners of Paid Memberships Pro.
Want a more detailed guide?
We’re working on a companion eBook to share more details from our personal experience and guides for anyone considering a similar change. Post a comment below if you have any specific questions about this transition.
Note: Today we had a major technical fail while trying to run our user webinar. I’ll skip the details, but we messed up big time, and people were left hanging and waiting for things to start. We were so delayed in getting things started and not confident that we could round viewers up to deliver a quality webinar. And so we decided to cancel the event. It wasn’t an easy decision, and we’re very sorry to the members who were ready and looking forward to that webinar.
Ask questions. Let’s setup an interview.
I’d really like to answer specific questions and address specific businesses that are struggling with pricing. So if you have a question, please post it in the comments below and I will do my best to address on the blog here. If you are open to a filmed interview that we could share on the site here, let us know. I will reach out to some of you to do one-on-one consultations that I think will be educational for everyone.
