How to Restrict Access to Website Content Using Pie Register

Certain pages on your website may not be meant for all users, especially if you have an exclusive website. Some of the content may only be for specifically authorized user roles or the paid or registered members. What if the user clicks on a link that is not meant for them?

Pie Register allows you to Restrict Access to the website content based on the user roles or the current logged-in status. With this feature, you can either block the content and display a message or redirect the user to a specific URL. Premium users can also block the content for search engines.
