Protected outbound links

Hello
Can anyone tell me how I can create protected links so that only members of my site can access an external website which is outside of the network of sites? I want them to be able to access a Weebly page and I don't want anyone but members to be able to get to it.

    Hi michaelcoulter5,

    Assuming you're using the Membership plugin (per your other thread) you can easily hide that from non-members by wrapping the link with a Membership shortcode.

    You can setup those shortcodes in Membership > Edit Options, then use that shortcode within your posts like so:
    [members-only]domain.com/externalsite[members-only]

    With that done, you can use the Shortcode Rule in your membership level setup, maybe placing the rule in the negative area and ticking it for the non-member or Stranger levels, and unticking it for all your other membership levels.

    How would that work for you?
