Product Description

This add-on for Easy Digital Downloads allows you to easily restrict content on your site to only those users who have purchased your products. In just seconds, you can limit the content of any post, page, custom post type, and even bbPress forums and topics to confirmed buyers of any product. If a user has not purchased the required product, they will be unable to view restricted content and will be shown a message instead, telling them they must purchase the product.

Once activated, all posts, pages, forums, topics, and other posts from public custom post types will have a section added to the edit screen that allows you to select the product or products, that the customer needs to have purchased in order to access the content.
