    How does it work and how does it recognize a visitor who has already subscribed, lets say 10 days or 2 month ago?

    with a cookie. infact it’s a method for instant access to a content, is not good to create something like a membership.

    Is it posible to have the content lock tag in place inside an article but display the whole article to registered and logged in members? I have a website with 6000 registered members and I do not want to lock the content for them if they are logged in.

    You really should add the option to redirect the visitors to the page where they registered (store a variable with the url and put it in the confirm subscription link)! Currently they have to search the page they were interested in again… and I think they will not like that!

    logged in users should bypass the content lock… *should*, I need to verify it.

    When a user register he should see the confirmation message, the he can click the back button. Anyway if he’s not confirmed the locked content is not shown. The locked content can be accessed with a special link you put on welcome email.

    I do not understand this part “When a user register he should see the confirmation message, the he can click the back button.” – do you mean that he can view the locked content if he clicks the back button after he completes the form even if he hasn’t confirmed it?

    And this ” The locked content can be accessed with a special link you put on welcome email.” – where is this special link? is it {unlock_url}? If it is how can I use it to redirect him to the page he is interested in?

    I have a Blogger Membership.

    I have over 10.000 pages and want to lock a special content that is available in all of them. How can I redirect the visitor to the same page where he used the subscribe form?

    But do you use single or double opt in? Create a link on the welcome page like javascript:void(history.back()).

    I use the double opt-in because is the safest. If I create a go back button it won’t go back because there is no history on the welcome page! You better implement the option that I told you about, it is easy to do and will help people a lot.

    Create a hidden field inside the subscription form with the current URL address then add this to the confirmation url For example: wp-content/plugins/newsletter/do/confirm.php?nk=1987-5e3dbce2e2&url=/page12/content.html so you’ll only need to check if the url is set and if so redirect the user to that page.

    That implies a modification to the plugin. I’ll take it in consideration but need some work. I cannot assure a release for that.
