Trying to get new “members” to his WordPress blog is not always easy. To try to push visitors to register and join your blog, you might resort to drastic measures as to conceal a portion of text.
Or, another scenario, you might want to reserve a portion of text only to the most loyal visitors: your members. This can be done without a plugin and even here the solution!


First, copy and paste the following code in your functions.php file (which I repeat must be in the file .php on your WordPress theme):

add_shortcode( 'membre', 'member_check_shortcode' );

function member_check_shortcode( $atts, $content = null )
if ( is_user_logged_in() && !is_null( $content ) && !is_feed() )
return $content;
return '';

Now, when you write a new article, add the new tag

[Member] [/ member]

to show the text only to your blog members.


  1. Good job. But I would like to know is there any code that I can add to show the content only to my RSS subscribers. Is that possible?
