Donate to Access Content


This is a Free add-on to Give donation plugin which allows admin to restrict the content of their website until a user has made a donation.

Once a user has made the donation they can access the content. Admin can choose to restrict the content of the site via shortcode or they restrict the entire website or a particular page, post, category, post type, etc… with the help of plugin settings.

What type of content can I restrict with this plugin?

With this plugin, you can restrict the content on a page or post by using plugin\’s shortcode or you can restrict an entire page, post, category archive page, custom post type, custom taxonomy archive page.

What shortcode is used to restrict the content?

The shortcode which is used to restrict the content is:

[cip_donate_to_access_content form_id=1 show=”form|message”]

It has 2 options, the first one is required which is the ID of the donation form which would appear instead of the restricted content. The second option is to either show a Donation form or a Message in place of the restricted content.

What if I am on a single post page and a category in that post is restricted. Would a user will still be able to view that post?

Yes, for now the Category Archive page can be restricted. If a post is in that category, a user can view that post without donation unless you restrict that entire post altogether.
