How to create membership level with rolling content availability?

I am setting up a site where there will be weekly blog posts. We would like the most recent post to be free for a week, and then go into the paid membership area. Bascially, the last seven days of content are free, anything older is only available via membership. How would I go about setting this up? I’d like it to be automatic, and not a matter of having to manually move posts into a different, protected category each week.

    Greetings quixotica,

    Thank you for the great question.

    I think a good solution may be to use URL Groups to make the archive files protected by paid memberships.

    Due to the fact that blog chronology constantly pushes content into the archives, the challenge here will be getting it pushed daily into a weekly archive situation to control the flow of posts being archived.

    To this moment I cannot figure out away to control the archives weekly

    I spent a bit of time trying to figure out a cleaner way.

    One other way may be to use the Weekly Archive Plugin, get the URL’s for each week and presenting only the last week to be viewed and making the other weeks URL’s protected by URL groups.

    Any chance you have any input on how to make either of these this happen?

    Please advise.

    Cheers, Joe
