How do I display excerpts for certain Membership levels...

How do I display excerpts for certain Membership levels and Full Content for another membership level, at the code base of my theme.

ie. (i'm not a coder, but here is a bad php pseudo code example of what I am trying to do with the membership plugin)

<?php if ( level_id=1 ) : ?>
<?php the_excerpt(); ?>
<?php endif; ?>

<?php if ( level_id=5 ) : ?>
<?php the_content(); ?>
<?php endif; ?>

    Hi there!

    The the_excerpt() function is specific to posts. Unfortunately we cannot restrict the showing of the Subscription content in this manner.

    looking at the page template for the subscription page I see that it calls the subscription content box, so there is no way to modify based on content display.

    <div class="pricebox subscriptionbox" id='subscriptionbox-<?php echo $subscription->i

    Very sorry.

    Wow really?

    So I can't hardcode the following:

    If logged in Premium Member (via member plugin), display information X

    Else, display information Y

    Is there away to associate the roles in wordpress with the levels of the membership plugin?

    This seems odd, almost a major functionality oversight, unless I am interpreting what you are saying incorrectly or not explaining what I am trying to do properly.

    From what I understand, I'm going to have to manually assign each user who signs up for a premium membership to a role so that I can then restrict them at code level.

    Is that a correct assumption?

    Thanks for the quick response.

    I am afraid there is some mus-communication going on here

    I am reading that you are wanting to display different subscription descriptions based on the users current subscription level?

    I am afraid I cannot understand why the subscriptions would change at all, nomatter which level you are.

    You can assign a wordpress user role under the Advanced Tab on Access Levels. Scroll to the bottom and you will see the dropdown.

    Dunno if you have the usage pdf?

    Ahhh sweet! Thank you.

    This appears to be a new feature (advanced tab) it wasn't there before.

    I updated recently from an older version.

    so for clarity, it will Autmotically switch the user level upon successful payment (if it is a paid membership model)?

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
