This guide will cover how you can use Elementor along with Memberium for ActiveCampaign to quickly and simply build your site and protect your content without the need to know any HTML, CSS, or Shortcodes.
Elementor is a simple to use, drag-and-drop page builder for WordPress. Memberium for ActiveCampaign integrates with Elementor so that you can protect individual elements with membership levels, tags, and other options. This allows you to show or hide content based on certain conditions you configure in Memberium for ActiveCampaign.
A common use case for this is showing links or even content to people who have purchased it while showing different content (sales content) to people who haven’t purchased yet.
Memberium provides all of the commonly used functions from the Content Protection Metabox for use inside Elementor.
The advantage of using the Memberium Elementor integration is that you don’t need to use any shortcodes.
To ensure the integration is present, make sure you’re using the latest version of Memberium.
If you’ve created the page using Elementor and under Content Protection the prohibited action is “Show Excerpt only”, then the content of the page/post will still be shown and not protected. This is a known Elementor limitation. We’d suggest you to protect the page using “Redirect” or “Hide Completely” as the prohibited action.
How to Access the Protection Box in Elementor
Open Elementor, click on the section or element, and then go to the advanced tab.
The most common protection option will be membership levels. If you want to allow only a certain membership level to see a section or element, simply turn on the switch for that membership level.
In this example, only members with the “Drivers” membership could see the protected element.
You can also place multiple tags in this box which would require the user have any of the tags. If you want to require two tags, place one tag in the top box and the other tag in the box below labeled “AND require Tag IDs”.
Logged In / Out Status
PHP Boolean Expression
This option allows you to use advanced or even custom protection options with the use of PHP code such as is_user_logged_in(), memb_hasMembership(), etc.
Here is a list of Memberium provided functions.
Example Use Cases
How can I protect something with multiple membership levels?
To allow multiple membership levels to access protected content, just switch the desired membership to ON. In the example here, both Drivers and Promoter members would be able to see the content.
This would not require a member to have both membership levels. If you want to require both membership levels, read the next example.
How can I protect something that requires a membership and a tag (or two membership levels)?
To require a membership level in addition to a tag, you’ll first switch on the membership level you want to protect with. In this example, I chose the Driver membership level.
Then to require a tag you come to the Require Tag IDs box and select the tag there. You can also put a membership tag in this box to require two membership levels. In my case, I chose the Promoter tag which is associated with a membership – meaning the user would need to have the Driver and Promoter memberships to see the content.
How can I show something only to users that don’t have a membership or tag?
Using the Require Tag IDs box, you can put a “-” before the tag ID to reverse the protection. You can see in the screenshot that it says “Does Not Have” before the tag name. This means that only users without the Gold tag/membership would be able to see this offer.
Using the Login widget?
If you’re using the Login widget (which is only available on Elementor Pro) then you’d need to enable the “Redirect after login” option and add the URL as “/wp-admin/“.
Configuring as per this will ensure that Memberium redirects the user to the correct membership homepage.
