Pay Per View will not show up on the page


I cannot get the Pay Per View option to show up on the page.

It worked at first, and now I cannot get it to show up.

Please advise.

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Timothy,

    I am attaching a snapshot of the settings page – as well as snapshots of the Admin for the Page and the Post.

    I created it in both formats, and it didn't work in either one.

    Here are the links:



    Please advice at your earliest.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hey there.

    Looking at your global settings you are protecting through automatic excerpt.

    But on those posts you have shortcodes in your editor yet in the top right you have global protection methods set.

    You need to change the method to “Selection tool” This will enable the post to use the shortcode you have.

    Hope this helps.

    Can you please tell me what “Selection Tool” means?

    Using the shortcode is selecting a specific items in the editor to protect. As such it was named the selection tool.

    So when ever you use a shortcode to protect content within a page then you must have selection tool selected. Unless of course that is set by default in your global settings.

    How do I determine what sections are seen for free – and which content can only be viewed after they pay?

    That’s something only you can answer, what do you want to protect or not?

    The original (but slightly cut down version) CSS is:

    a.payperview-login_link-cancel, .ppw_submit_btn {
    color: #4e4d4d;
    background-color: #f6f6f6;
    text-shadow: 0 1px 0 #ffffff;
    background: #f8f8f8; /* Old browsers */
    background: -moz-linear-gradient(top, #f8f8f8 0%, #eae9e9 100%); /* FF3.6+ */
    background: -webkit-gradient(linear, left top, left bottom, color-stop(0%,#f8f8f8), color-stop(100%,#eae9e9)); /* Chrome,Safari4+ */
    background: -webkit-linear-gradient(top, #f8f8f8 0%,#eae9e9 100%); /* Chrome10+,Safari5.1+ */
    background: -o-linear-gradient(top, #f8f8f8 0%,#eae9e9 100%); /* Opera 11.10+ */
    background: -ms-linear-gradient(top, #f8f8f8 0%,#eae9e9 100%); /* IE10+ */
    background: linear-gradient(top, #f8f8f8 0%,#eae9e9 100%); /* W3C */

    You could use that within your own theme and alter it to your needs.

    Take care.
