Restrict Access of Documentation Guide Sections using Documentor UAM Integration Add-on

If you are running a member area website or having personal access areas, you may need to restrict access to selected users. For such situations, either you password protect the page or post or completely restrict access.

Free WordPress plugin like User Access Manager allows you to create a user group with selected users and allow access to those only. You can put any registered user of the website to that group or you can create multiple groups as per the access levels.

With this technique, you can control the access of different users as per their assigned group.

Access Control in Documentor Guide

We were receiving request to add similar feature for Documentor guide’s sections too. For example, if you don’t want to show certain sections of a guide to few people, you may need to restrict access. This feature is widely used on membership website or Internal usage portal of a company or organization.

UAM (User Access Manager) plugin works perfectly fine on Pages and Posts but was not working for sections. We thought to leverage the power of UAM and integrate it with Documentor.

Now we have finally released an add-on named UAM Integration to restrict the access of sections. By simply going on edit section panel, one can restrict the section to certain user group.

Note: UAM Integration is available along with Multisite and Developer plans of Documentor Pro WordPress plugin.
