When a user visits a page that they do not have access granted to, one of several results can happen based on how you setup the page.
- The page can be marked as hidden, resulting in a 404.
- The page can be marked as redirected, which allows you to send the visitor to another page altogether.
- The page can be marked as Excerpt Only, which replaces the main page content with the Excerpt.
The Excerpt can come from one of two sources: The first source is the Excerpt for the page which is defined on that page.The second source is the “Default Excerpt” which is defined in the Memberium settings in the Admin Dashboard.
When a visitor reaches a page Excerpt, the system will first attempt to display the Excerpt defined for that particular page. If no Excerpt is defined, the system will display the “Default Excerpt”.
If neither Excerpt is defined, nothing will be displayed.
Note: If you do not find the box to input a customized excerpt at the bottom of a page or a post, go to the screen options on the top of the page/post and ensure that the excerpts check box is ticked.
