I am trying to use s2member as a pay-for-post kind of solution.
But rather than hiding the entire post, I want to give readers (guests) the first paragraph for free.
Pay-for-post seems possible with Specific Post/Page “Buy Now” access.
Hiding parts of the post seems possible with shortcodes.
But I am having trouble linking those two functions together. I would appreciate any help!
- Specific Post/Page Buy Now appears designed for restricting access to the entire post… is this correct? The UI won’t let me generate shortcodes for pages that aren’t specifically protected based on the post_id.
- What permissions are actually granted to a user when they make a purchase using the Specific Post/Page Buy Now?
- What happens in the above scenario when the user is a guest? s2member doesn’t appear to automatically make an account for a guest if they make a purchase using the Specific Post/Page Buy Now. And it looks like anyone that has the shortURL that’s created can access the page, is this also correct?
