Version 1.6 of Restrict Content Pro has just been released. It’s the largest release I’ve pushed out in quite some time and includes several notable new features.

I have been running version 1.6 on several large production websites for nearly a month now and am completely confidant in its stability, but of course if you have any issues, please post them in the support forum.

Subscription Level Specific Discount Codes

It has been requested over and over again, and with 1.6 the feature has been added: discount codes that are limited to specific subscription levels. When creating discount codes, you can now select the subscription level it applies to from a simple drop down:

At registration, discount codes will only be valid if the user is registering for the level selected.

I have introduced a new highly requested feature that allows site owners to automatically send renewal reminders via email when members are about to expire. The new options have been added to the “Emails” tab in Restrict > Settings and allow you to set the email subject, the message, and also the length of time before expiration that the emails will be sent:

Better Content Restriction Options

One of the severe limitations that RCP has had since v1.0 is the inability to easily restrict content to multiple subscription levels. No more. In 1.6 I have greatly improved how the content restriction works.

You can select any and all levels you want to be able to view the content. You can also use the [restrict] short code with multiple subscription IDs:

[restrict subscription="3,5"]Content here[/restrict]

    Hi Pippin, I have Restrict Content Pro, but still shows V 1.5.6, that means I did not get the update, please let me how I could get the new version. Thanks.

    • Pippin

      Do you have a license key?

    • Mohamed Ali

      I bought from CodeCanyon on January 4, 2013. I still have Purchase Confirmation email, I am not sure if there is a Ken in the email. I used to get the updated but did not on V1.6.

    • Pippin

      Send me the license certificate. I’ll need to add the plugin to your account here.

    Hi, Pippin:
    have a problem installing … the plugin does not create discounts database.
    Review the code in install.php and noticed you don’t have a comma before UNIQUE KEY.

    Where it says:

    `subscription_id` mediumint NOT NULL
    UNIQUE KEY id (id)

    It should be:

    `subscription_id` mediumint NOT NULL,
    UNIQUE KEY id (id)

    Thanks for this great plugin.

    • Pippin

      Thanks for the catch! I’ve just pushed out an update to fix it.

  3. Greg Farries

    I too bought the plugin from Code Canyon. I sent you an email yesterday, with my license info. Did you get it?


    • Pippin

      Yes and I’ll answer as soon as I can.

    How can I edit or manually enter payment history?
    I use Stripe but some people want to pay in cash or check.

    • Pippin

      I added support for manual payment creation in RCP 1.7, which was released yesterday.

  5. Aki

    Is there a way to release content by date? For example I’m starting a course, I want to release a new module each week regardless is they completed the 1 st module or not

    • Pippin

      No, sorry.

  6. keki

    I bought from CodeCanyon on 3 Oct, 2012. I still have Purchase Confirmation email, I am not able to update say you should have a licence key, advice

    • Pippin

      Send me your complete license certificate.

    Hi Pippin,

    I purchased Restrict Content Pro on 18th of April for $86.00. Now when I come to download the latest version I see the message ‘no downloadable files found’ on the purchase confirmation page.

    How can I get the latest download?


    • Pippin

      Can you tell me your original purchase receipt ID?

    • Paul Bursnall

      I have the license code, although I’m reluctant to post that publicly. I purchased version 1.55.

    • Pippin

      If you just tell me the purchase receipt ID, I can verify it and get your access restored.

    • Paul Bursnall

      I expect that receipt ID was lost when I moved hosts recently and didn’t bother to archive mail (I only had a very small amount). I assume this doesn’t mean I’ve spent $86 for nothing?

    • Pippin

      I can certainly get you access again. Losing it is simply due to a glitch. Can you tell me the email address you would have purchased it with? Your username would also work. I just need to be to locate the original purchase.

    A user just registered and paid. But his status is still pending.

    I needed to activate his account manually.

    How can the accounts be automatically be active once they pay.

    Thank you.

  9. Marisa

    I also purchased Restrict Content Pro from CodeCanyon and have an email receipt. I cannot update my plugin due to not having a license key. Could you please help with this matter so that I can update your plugin on my wordpress site? Thank you.

    • Pippin

      If you paste your complete license certificate for me here, I can add it to your account on this site.
