Paywall for media in posts for certain groups

What would you like done?

Our client needs their posts media to be pay-walled for specific groups of users. There are a lot of media in the posts made by forum users, but we need these media to become unavailable after certain time/views or unavailable overall for specific group of users. Unavailability of the media can be represented by placeholder asking user to proceed to checkout to subscribe to the service in order to view everything. Subscription status in the service is being synced with forum and that’s how we define which groups should access the media, and which groups should not.

It would be great if this could be limited to specific Categories in the forum.

This should certainly not be a CSS Hack or something like that.

When do you need it done?

Can be discussed. No rush.

What is your budget, in $ USD that you can offer for this task?

Open to your suggestions.

Category access is already controlled by group membership. Why doesn’t that work?

Oh. And you don’t want the topics to be protected, but the media/images on those posts. CSS will allow clever users to bypass the protection ;is that ok?

Sounds more like a pay per view type of concept. Only x number of views allowed then one needs to pay to view media.

Because the content is being shared between public discussions and we want them to remain public. Limiting non-subscribers from the category will give no understanding for them of the volume of content available there.

That’s why we need a solution which won’t be bypassed on client side with CSS or using similar approaches.

That sounds like it, right.

Hi @kinetiksoft
