Membership Shortcodes & Rules Confusion

I am not sure why this is happening - hopefully someone will have an answer to this: On multiple pages, both the "no access" message AND the content are appearing.

Also, I have this thread still unresolved an was hoping to gain clarification https://premium.wpmudev.org/forums/topic/membership-rules-question .

I want for the "Member's Area" and all of the subcategories here VISIBLE to Visitors & Free Members, but restrict access to the actual content.
Would you please give me an example (on one of them, let's say 'Book Updates') of how I would align this in membership options and shortcodes?
Thanks for all of your help. I think I am almost there :slight_smile:

Would you be willing to take a look in my admin? Strangest thing is that I don't have my "about" page even restricted in the rules :slight_frown:

thnx,
