Restrictions for pages....not posts


I have over 19,000 pages…not posts currently in my wordpress site. Of course I can’t go into each page to set Level 1 restrictions as it would take too long. Since the vast majority of pages need protection, the only option I had was to select ‘all’ pages for protection. This works great; however, it restricts some pages that I would like the non-members to view (i.e contact us, sitemap, privacy, etc.). Since I selected ‘all pages’, they are locked to only paid members. Tried using the restrictions (category) but since I’m using pages as opposed to posts, it does not work. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Make the public pages a custom post type (CPT) e.g. “public-pages”.

You can use a plug-in like to create the CPT.
