[Resolved] Email content locker on CPT

This is the technical support forum for Toolset - a suite of plugins for developing WordPress sites without writing PHP.

Everyone can read this forum, but only Toolset clients can post in it. Toolset support works 6 days per week, 19 hours per day.


My client has a library of documents and forms and that it wants to make available online. My client does not want to create a full-scale membership. They want to prevent access to these documents and forms until an email address has been provided.

I've created a searchable view that lists the documents and forms. Ideally, when a visitor to the website clicks on the document/form in question, it will only redirect to the CPT when a user enters their email address. This will then display some explanatory notes, additional information and a link to the document.

Does anybody have any experience or knowledge of a simple email content locker that works with Toolset?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Simon,

Thank you for contacting us and I'd be happy to assist.

The Toolset Access plugin is designed to offer content restrictions around members, which means the visitors will first have to register/signup as a user on the website.

If you're looking for an email content locking feature without user registration, you'll need to use some third-party plugin. While we don't recommend or restrict to use any specific plugin, the following article reviews some of the popular options:

Adding membership feature to a website is fairly simple with Toolset plugins and if your client is open to this idea, the following guides will help:



My issue is resolved now. Thank you!
