Private Comments

This Article Applies to


Memberium’s Private Comments feature gives you the ability to easily make comments for any page or post private, so that only the administrators, the author of the page/post, and the author of the comment can see the comment on the page.


Private Commenting can be turned on in two places depending on how you want the feature to behave.

Per User Private Commenting

The first place you can turn on this feature is at the user level, which will force all comments made by that user to be private.

This can be found in WordPress user editor almost at the bottom of the page

Per Page/Post Private Commenting
The second place you can turn on this feature is at the page/post level, which will force all comments made on that page/post to be kept private.

This can be found in the content protection section of a post/page

This is private commenting feature in action on a WordPress page. There are two users posting comments on the page, except one of the users has “Enable Private Comments” option enabled in his WordPress user profile and other user does not have that option enabled. In case we’ve only selected “Private Commenting” on the page/post itself, all of the comments posted by all of the users would be private and users would not be able to view comments of each other.

Please note that private comments are ONLY visible to the author of the comment.

User with private commenting enabled in it’s WordPress user profile sees his own comments along with other comments on the page
User which does not have private commenting enabled sees only he’s own and other public comments

Visual Styling

Private comments are displayed with a class of “memberium_private_comment”, allowing you to style them as you please.

Update Contact HTTP POST

The update-contact HTTP POST function is a system for Infusionsoft to notify Memberium that an update has been made to the contact, and that Memberium needs to update the contact’s records. This is a more efficient system than having Memberium constantly check for updates. It’s also more efficient than using the [memb_sync_contact] shortcode, which will resync the contact everytime the page it’s on displayed, and not only after changes.

How to Increase WordPress Memory Limits

Out of the box, your WordPress site is typically configured to limit itself to only using 40MB of RAM on your server. This is in many ways ideal, because you don’t want each site hit to consume an immense amount of resources, just the minimum it needs. Too much memory and your site risks becoming slow and bloated.
