Fade Out Text When Previewing Premium Content

Have you seen those flashy premium content sites where the preview content is blurred and fades out? This is a great visual cue to show readers there is MORE to read—after they subscribe.

This tooltip shows you a bit of CSS that will blur and fade the excerpt of members-only content. Visitors and users without access will see a portion of the introductory text, then are prompted to sign up with the appropriate non-member message.
