Change element visibility by user login and capability
You can choose if a row or module is visible or hidden, based on whether a user is logged in, logged out, or never (meaning the element is only visible to the person editing the page). If you choose to show an element only when a user is logged in, you can also enter a capability the user must have.
Note: As of Beaver Builder Plugin Version 2.1.4, if you limit visibility, an Eye icon will appear in the row, column, or module toolbar, as shown in the following screenshot:
Here are some ways the Beaver Builder community has used the visibility feature:
- You have a subscription or membership site and have a call to action that you only want to display to users who aren't logged in.
- You want to hide the login form in a row after the user has logged in.
- You are testing some new content and want to show it only to your site's editors and administrators before taking it live. (Choose Logged in user and edit the capability.)
- You want to hide time-sensitive info on an event site so that when it's time to show it again, you can unhide it. (Choose Logged in user and set the capability to Administrator).
For a description of WordPress user roles and capabilities, see the WordPress codex.
To change element visibility by user login:
- Open a row, column, or module for editing.
- Click the Advanced tab and navigate to Visibility.
- Select the user login status.
If you select Logged in user, you can also select a capability to fine-tune which types of users can see the element. See the Related Articles for details.
