How To Create Restricted Content Page Using Elementor


In this competitive marketplace, it’s tough to get genuine and regular visitors to a Website. Moreover, it’s challenging to convert a random visitor into a potential subscriber.

To build a solid subscriber base website, you must follow some innovative initiative to grave the full attention of a stranger visitor as he becomes a real subscriber. 

It’s a unique and intelligent marketing technique to use restricted content on a website to convert a casual visitor into a potential subscriber.

In this blog, I will show you how to create a restricted content page using Elementor step by step. 

What is a Restricted Content Page? 

In WordPress, you can restrict your content. The restricted content page means a restricted content page is only accessible by specific users who’re logged in or want them to view the content. 

Benefits of using a Restricted Content Page

There are many reasons why you should use restricted content on your website. 

Limit Access: Whether you are an author or other creative, a company, or an organization with huge memberships, you can benefit from limited access to certain content.

Protect Content: If you feel insecure about your content, you can restrict your content page to protect them. In the author’s case, new chapters of works in progress could be shared with certain users while blocking the content from the general public.

Build an Email List: It is all about relationships, and the way to build relationships is to create connections. An email list is perfect for engaging with you and your users personally and directly.

Provide User Access: The more users can access and engage the contact, the longer you can keep those users on your website. One of the critical facts in SEO ratings is your bounce rate (or how long visitors stay on your site).

When users can self-register for your different membership levels and then engage with the content offered to those levels, you will keep them on the website longer, and ultimately it’ll increase your success rate.

Create Restricted Content Page Using Elementor

If you are using Elementor to build your WordPress website, this blog is perfect for you. Elementor is a Drag and Drop Page Builder Plugin. With this plugin, we can build premium-looking websites without writing a single line of code.

Today I’m going to show you how to create a restricted content page in WordPress using Elementor. So please follow the steps and enjoy the blog!  

Install Elementor Plugin

Installing Elementor is just like the same process as installing other plugins. To install Elementor, you may follow these steps. 

First, you need to go to your WordPress dashboard, then go to Plugins > Add New. 

Now type Elementor into the search bar. 

Then find the Elementor, click on Install Now to install the plugin, and activate it.  

You don’t need to buy the PRO version of Elementor to create a Restricted Content section. Once the installation is complete, Activate the plugin. But there is some extra benefit of the Pro version, so I’ll prefer to use the pro version. 

Get Essential Addons To Create Restricted Content Page

Once you have installed the Elementor plugin on your website, you need to add an Addon to Elementor. It’s the most effective Addon Library for Elementor.

If you want to unlock the EA Protected Content element, you need to get the PRO version of this plugin. Now that you have furnished your WordPress Website with the necessary plugins let’s get down to business.

Step One: Select the Content you want to Restrict

First, you need to search for EA Protected Content from the search bar. Drag the Element inside the Elementor Interface and drop it.

You can select your desired Content from the Content> Protected Content Tab. Now choose the Content you want to protect. You will see two options. One is Content another is Saved Templates

If you choose the Content option, use the Editor to create your Content.

If you don’t see your content updating inside the Elementor Interface, then don’t worry. Here is a screenshot of what the interface would look like.

Or you can also use a Saved Template option for Content. It can be a more suitable option as you can use any template from the Elementor Template Library, edit it as required and save it. 

Step o2: Set a Pass to Restrict your Content 

After you have selected a content type for your Page, It’s time to set a password to restrict your Content. Here you will have two options. One is you can select a user role on your WordPress Website. If you specified the User Role Editor to have access to the Content, every individual on your website having an Editor Role would have access to the Content.

The second option is to set a Password for the Content. You can select a specific password for your content, and the content will only be visible when the password is an exact match! 

Let’s preview the page to see how it would look live.

Step 03: Set a Message for your Visitors

You can set a standard massage for your visitor before accessing the content. The common message is set to ‘You do not have permission to see this content.’ But you can choose not to show any message, which is not recommended. I recommend you to always use a Message for the Restricted Page.

If you like to display a message, you will see a mini WordPress editor appear on your screen. Here you have to type your message, and you are all set to go.

By the way, you can also use a Template for the message.

Hit the Publish button to publish the content if you are done with the message.


Wow! It’s done! Elementor is an excellent builder to build any content on your WordPress website without any coding headaches. You can simply try many more elements by Elementor Pro, and it’ll help you get rid of critical designs.
