How To Bypass Wishlist Member Protection for Posts or Pages?

Wishlist Member allows you to choose what for which custom post types you want to enable the Wishlist Member protection settings.

If you want to enable the Wishlist Member protection settings for specific custom post type, you can easily do it by enabling it inside Wishlist Member Settings -> Custom Post Type and select the post type you want protect by Wishlist Member protection.

But what can you do if want to exclude the default post types (posts, pages) from Wishlist Member protection.

Achieving that could be a little bit tricky and you need to use some code to enable this functionality.

The function inside Wishlist Member that decide whether or not a specific content will be displayed to a visitor is located inside the wpm.php located in the root folder of the Wishlist Member plugin.

You can disable the function checking by adding a special code at the beginning of them function code and technically tell the function to return the template for the specific content without checking the protection settings.

If you want to disable the protection checking all posts add this code at the beginning of them function:

If you want to disable the protection checking all pages add this code at the beginning of them function:

If you want to disable the protection checking both for posts and pages add this code at the beginning of them function:

If you are using this code and changing the wpm.php file, you should know few things:

  1. Wishlist Member will not support custom or modified code inside the Wishlist Member plugin.
  2. When Wishlist Member will release a new version these changes will be deleted, and you will need to add them again.

Wishlist Member & WooCommerce Integration – Problem Solved

If you have ever tried to integrate Wishlist Member with WooCommerce then you have probably used the WooThemes extension for Wishlist Member that allows you to integrate Wishlist Member & WooCommerce together.

In some cases, the WooThemes extension is enough, but in most cases you will see that it’s just not doing the job and it will even totally fail.

Our Client’s Problem with Integrating Wishlist & WooCommerce:

The problem started when one of our customers who bought this plugin from WooThemes tried to create a store where he wanted to sell both Wishlist Member membership levels and PayPerPost content.

The WooThemes extension added only some of the products, and to the customer it seemed like it’s adding random products from the customers’ cart to the member, and he didn’t like that his customer support was filled with angry customers who didn’t get want they have purchased.

After the customer didn’t find any solution to his problem, he has contacted us for troubleshooting the issue.

Solving the Problem – 2 Suggestions:

A Wishlist Member certified developer was assigned to the project and after digging into the code he has found that the problem is more than what the customer described, and the WooThemes Wishlist Member WooCommerce integration will break in many other scenarios then the one our client was facing, even without the customer knowing about it.
