Add-On Type(s)

Extension, Module


This add-on enables you to restrict front-end access to certain channel entries for certain members or member group

Install the add-on, define the groups and/or idividual members whom you want to grant access on publish tab (when creating or editing the entry). A nice select control with filtering option is for your service there.

Then, include into your channel entries call two new tag pairs: {grant_access} and {deny_access}.

That’s all, you’re done! Now only selected members will have access to the entry.

The restrictions also apply to editing entry from CP.

Default permissions (for a new entry) can be set in extension settings.

We just used this with Expresso Store and Zoo Visitor. Client wanted to create members - and have each member see a different range of products.

In an hour this add-on let us extend the site so each unique site member could only see products attributed to them by the site admin.

Fantastic add-on. Although it doesn’t mention it in the documentation above this also restricts access to entries in the back-end too so you’re getting double your money’s worth! ;-)

Great add-on Yuri, well done!

Wow. Simplifies the configuration of content access by member group or single member big times!

Just realized that the review i wrote yesterday for Ajax Auth is from the same guy. Definitely very valuable plugin developer!
