Content Lockers For WordPress: How To Add Them QUICKLY And FOR FREE

August 24, 2019


In this video, you’re gonna see how to add
content lockers to WordPress quickly and for free. Hi, I am Robert from ThemeIsle.com and I welcome you to our channel! If you’re just concerned with adding a social
locker to WordPress, OnePress Social Locker is a popular, free, and well-rated plugin
for the job. You can use it to boost your social media
presence, requiring users to either share or subscribe to three different networks before
accessing your content: Facebook, Twitter, Google + and you can also get more features
in the Pro version. To use OnePress Social Locker, all you need
to do is install and activate the free plugin from your WordPress dashboard. Once it’s activated, head to Social Locker
→ All Lockers and edit the locker you’re interested in: Sign-In Locker – requires users to follow
you to gain access Social Locker – requires users to share
or like on a social network for access. Then, you can configure the message and styling
for your social locker. Below the configuration interface, you’ll
see a live preview. Once you’re happy with how your locker looks,
save your changes. Now, to lock part of the content in your posts,
you just need to use the new Social Locker button in the WordPress Editor. And your social locker is good to go! Another good Content Locker is OnePress Opt-in
Panda. This WordPress plugin syncs up with all the
major email marketing service providers to require users to sign up for your mailing
list before they can view the content. The interface is pretty much identical to
OnePress Social Locker (in fact – if you install both, they’ll actually work together). Just install and activate it, then head to
Opt-in Panda → All Lockers to configure your opt-in locker. Then, you can add the shortcode to your posts
using the Opt-in Panda button and then, the plugin will lock up your content on the front-end. Just remember – when you add content lockers
to WordPress, you always want to make sure you’re not tanking your site’s user friendliness. That is, use content lockers judiciously.

  1. Hello everyone! Thanks for your honest interactions here! If you have any questions about what I mentioned in this video please leave a comment below.

  2. Hi Peter, great locker. What I don't understand is that such lockers are not made for Woocommerce (memberships). All they added is an ugly single line of code… Know of any good (visually attractive) lockers for Woo?
