A very simple plugin to limit visibility of your content based on user roles, while offering an alternative area to add the content that will be shown to non logged-in users.
This block could be used to create a simple membership site, for instance.
We could also insert a reusable block in the “public” area with a call to action asking visitors to register, in order to gain access to that content.

The author of the plugin mentions some features coming down the road:
- Login Block
- Register Block
- Password Reset Block

This is the public content
You will only see this, of course 🙂
