Force members to subscribe

I was just wondering if there was a way to allow members access to certain areas of the site only when they have subscribed to my newsletter, and to disallow them if they unsubscribe? I'd like to offer member bonuses only for newsletter subscribers, and add those bonuses periodically to the site so they don't have to wait for me to send them in a newsletter.

    Hi angeljs,

    Thanks for asking. I'm afraid, there is no feature in e-Newsletter plugin yet to restrict/give access to certain content on your site. But there is a workaround I think. That is using Membership 2 Pro plugin.

    You can create a membership and protect your content for that membership. And then manually add your subscribers to that membership. This will allow your subscribers to see the protected content. You will get full usage guide of Membership 2 Pro here: https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/membership/#product-usage

    You can also automate the process, but for doing that, you might need to hire a developer. You can check your users subscription status programmatically and then assign them to your membership plan but this will require huge advanced custom coding which is beyond our scope I'm afraid. If this could be done in 5 - 10 minutes, I'd be glad to do this for you, but this will take much more. You can get our Support Vs. Custom Development policy here: https://premium.wpmudev.org/manuals/using-wpmu-dev/support-vs-custom-development/

    You can always hire a developer from our Jobs Section. Please keep in mind, developers found in our Jobs Section are not associated with us in any way. So communicate with them well before you make any payments to them.

    Please let us know if you have any confusion or any further query. We will be glad to help.

    Have a nice day. Cheers!
