The permissions have now been set up and are working but the part I do not like is that when you log in, you can still see the Post Title or Video preview screen. When you click on it- it will tell you if you have permission or not whether to view the actual video. Is there a way that each level ONLY sees the posts that are for their level and not have to click through all of the videos to test which one is available and which one is not. This makes it very user unfriendly.

You can protect sections of a page, so that the content is only visible to certain membership levels:May 29, 2014 at 11:30 pm #63398
I am not sure what you mean by the following:
you can still see the Video preview screen
eMember doesn’t do any video preview screen so I am not entirely sure about the setup you have. Are you protecting the full post/page where the video is embedded?May 30, 2014 at 5:32 pm #63399
When the user click on the menu item (for example cardio) the user can visually see all 40 videos- but needs to click on each video to hunt for the ones that are open to them. I have a pic but can not insert here. But for now- you can go to the site
use the temp user/password Energize
You will see all 40 videos but this user only has access to 15 of those.
Let me know when you are done- so that I can change the pass

I think, you need to use a variation of this strategy:
For example; let’s just suppose you have 3 membership levels. You would have 3 versions of the “Cardio” category; one for each membership level. You would then modify your theme to only display the correct “Cardio” category link, based on the member’s membership level. When they get to the level-specific version of the “Cardio” category page, all of the items displayed would be accessible to them.June 4, 2014 at 6:38 pm #63401
I did this and have all the views are now perfect. But now when I click on the post- I keep getting Your membership level does not allow you to view the rest of the content.
I have double checked and the levels are set right in the General as well as in the single video posts. Any other ideas.June 4, 2014 at 11:37 pm #63402
You are doing some custom tweaking so it will help me if you shared some snippet of code that you are using to do this.
Which functions are you using from the following page?
What version of the membership plugin are you using?June 5, 2014 at 3:45 pm #63403
Version is : Version v8.7.6
The Code I added to the post was
[emember_protected for=2 do_not_show_restricted_msg=1]
Stuff only membership level 2 should see goes here, including links to
category protected pages that only level 2 can see…
This does allow the pages to view properly. But where you click on the video it says I do not have permission to view.June 5, 2014 at 11:31 pm #63404
I can’t see how this section protection shortcode is preventing the view from playing. Can you share a link to this page so I can have a better visual understanding?
How are those videos embedded? What plugin are you using to embed those videos inside the section protection code?
What happens if you deactivate e-member and click on the video?
