Adding private content

Admins and user roles with admin rights can add private content to any user on the site.

The private content page supports the standard WordPress editor and can be used for media or text.

On the User profile page, the private content can be found under the Private content tab.


The private content can be added to existing pages or posts using [um_private_content] shortcode e.g.

[um_private_content] This text is only visible to private content owner [/um_private_content]
