Drip Rule for Partial Content of a page/post/custom posts
This setting becomes very useful when you don’t want to Drip full post or page content. So, if you want to drip some specific block of content then this option will work for you.
While adding the Drip Rules, you will find a
Custom Content option in
Content Type dropdown list. By selecting this option, you will be able to add custom content and along with that, the shortcode for the particular custom content will also 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)
Drip Rules – Metabox
When you add new page/post/custom post, at that time default Drip Rules which are set while configuring the Drip Content will be applied for the pages/post/custom post for that specific type.
So, you can also edit Drip Rules from particular page/post/custom post having meta box in RIGHT options panel. So, that can be changed easily. You will find metabox shown in following image
