How to show comments to members only – WordPress
You have visited a lot of websites (mainly forums) that do not allow non-logged in users to see the comments, and they say something like that- ‘You need to login to see the comments!’. Right?
And you were wondering if it is possible with WordPress? Let me tell you how to do this.
1. Install Mask Comments Pro plugin in your WordPress site.
2. Go to your settings page
2.1. In the General Settings section check the user roles you want to show comments to-
And don’t forget to select post types too.
2.2. In Default Settings section, set a custom message stating that the visitors need to login to see comments on this post or page.
You are half-done.
3. Create a new post and change the Mask Comments settings in post publish box.
Yes, you are done. Now log out and see the post you just created. Comments are masked with the text you have provided.
