filter or function that works with query_posts

I am using query_posts function to display posts on a page in my site. I need a way to only show posts that the user has access to and have been "dripped" - what can I do?

There if very little docs on this plugin on its functions and filters.

    Hello fonderco

    I have just tried with a simple query_posts function like the following:

    add_action( 'wp_footer', function() {
    	query_posts( 'posts_per_page=5' );
    
    	while ( have_posts() ) : the_post();
    		echo '<li>';
    		the_title();
    		echo '</li>';
    	endwhile;
    
    	// Reset Query
    	wp_reset_query();
    } );

    And I got the only the posts that is allowed in my membership. I have also tried with dripped protection too.

    Would you please share the exact code that you used in your site so that I can try with that code and find the issue?

    Have a nice day!

    Cheers,
    Ash

    Here is the shortcode code that I am using to display the post that are protected. It is just showing them all.

    I have kept digging on this issue.

    Right now I have the basic loop. Just the index.php showing all the posts.

    When I expose the WP_Query object for the loop every post id is listed under post__not_in -- why would this be? This isn't correct. I have 3 posts that should be immediate.

    When I do the "test membership" and change my date to be 2 years in the future which should show all my posts. Sill every post ID is listed under post__not_in
