You can add three types of drip rules:

ARMember_drip_type

This type of drip rule will be applied immediately after user get subscribed to the relevant plan and also to the users who are already subscribed to that plan.


After certain time of subscription

This type of drip rule will be applied to the members of selected plan after number of days from their starting date of subscription.


Specific date onward (range)

This type of drip rule will be applied to selected plan members in between selected date range. If you select From Date & didn’t select To Date, then this rule will be applied from “From date” to “infinite time”.

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 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.

ARMember_custom_drip_rule

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)
