In the membership options it has a box to list desired shortcodes (one on each line). You are then able to, through the "Edit Levels" to put "Shortcodes" in the Negative Rules section and check the shortcodes you don't want to appear.
I have, for the life of me, tried to figure out how to get this to work but I can't. Both the Shortcode I created by using the options mentioned above and the shortcode I create by adding to the bp-function.php file show up in the list of shortcodes to check in the Edit Level Negative Rule area.
However, when I sign in as the test account which has the level in question assigned to it, I still see the content of the Shortcode.
I also don't know how to use the Shortcodes you create in the membership options. They just come up as [Shortcode]content[/Shortcode] on the page. I also tried [Shortcode="content"] but that also displays as is.
What I'm trying to do is show ads on the default "Free" membership level throughout the site by way of a Shortcode. But if the person upgrades to the "Paid" membership the Shortcode that I use to display the ads would be hidden using the Negative Shortcode rule in the membership options. Maybe I'm doing everything wrong?
Thank you in advance for any help!
