This setting becomes very useful when you don’t wont to Drip whole post or page content. So, if you want to drip some specific block of content then this option will work for you.

While adding drip rules, you will find Custom Content option in Content Type drop down list. By selecting this option you will be able to add custom content and along with that one related shortcode be available there.

By using that shortcode in any page/post/custom post you can drip your specific content – the content only added within the shortcode. Other than that all things will work same as drip content for page/post/custom post.

If you have created any drip rule for “custom content” – then it will be available directly in list of shortcode supported with wordpress editor. (Wordpress Editor – more information)

ARMember_drip_rules_add_custom_content_shortcode

Please make sure that drip rule on page/post for certain time will work only if Default Restriction for that page/post is ON as well as user’s plan(s) are not allowed access for that page/post at Access Rules.

ARMember_addons_drip_content

“Dripping” content is the process of scheduling the release of content in your membership site for your members. ARMember includes full drip/scheduled content functionality which allows you to set delay for releasing your content to your members.

Set your schedule content based on – immediately, after certain time of subscription or specific date onward(date range).

Drip Rules will work only for posts/pages for which access rules are set from Access Rules section. Only restricted posts/pages can be dripped from Drip Rules.

Ex., If post A is not restricted from Access Rules and even though if you have set drip rule for it like ‘post A should be accessible only after specific date (15/01/2015) for plan A users’, then post A will remain open before 15/01/2015 for all users, as no access rules are not set for post A.
This is how Drip Rules & Access Rules will work together.

WARNING: Drip Rule will not work as expected while testing against an Administrator who is logged in. Administrator do have gain full access to all content.

Please make sure that drip rule on page/post for certain time will work only if Default Restriction for that page/post is ON as well as user’s plan(s) are not allowed access for that page/post at Access Rules.
