I have the free version of S2 Member.
S2 Member protected pages should not appear in the site map or the menu.
You can make any page private in WP, and with the ElegantThemes.com theme I use I can hide any page from the site nav.
But if I do either of these things then the pages are not available to all users (registered or not).
And I’ve looked at the WP Dashboard > Appearance > Menu section and I can choose one menu, add custom links, put checks in check boxes for pages that exist, select categories, and choose Add to Menu for each of these. Nice–so I can add items I already have on my menu to my menu.
Does anybody know how to hide S2 member protected pages? Keep them off the nav, and out of the site map, so the complete site hierarchy isn’t visible to the sweaty masses?
I’ve searched and found numerous places here where people talk about coding, conditionals and changing various PHP elements. I’ve read a few items about the restricted pages, alternative view protection and even some handy snippets of [s2 IF code] that can be put into the html view on posts and pages.
It seems there would be a built-in, ready to use, standard feature, on/off switch in S2 Member: Hide/show protected pages in site menu. And a second handy switch that would do the same thing in the site map.
And it would be nice if I didn’t need to install some other “hide pages” plug-in as one post suggested.
WP is a user friendly, super CMS–I just wish so many things didn’t require getting my fingernails dirty in hand coded work-arounds that will break when the next version of WP or a plugin comes out.
