Divi’s built-in condition options make it really easy to hide or show any element based on a number of conditions, including the user’s logged-in status. A really useful application of this conditional functionality is to create member-exclusive blog posts. The idea is to show non-members (or logged-out users) a brief excerpt of the post content along with a call to action to sign up or log in to see the full article. Then, for members (or logged-in users), you show the full post with all the content.
In this tutorial, we are going to show you how to create member-exclusive blog posts by using Divi’s theme builder and Divi’s new condition options. Once done, you will have a dynamic blog post template that will incentivize users to become a member of your site to view the full content of each post.
Let’s get started!
Here is a quick look at the design we’ll build in this tutorial.
Here is a blog post showing only the post excerpt and a CTA overlay inviting users to become a member or log in to view the full article.
Once you log in using the login form, you will be redirected to the same post showing all of the post content.
