In marketing, some pages are designed for a specific audience. Due to this, Groundhogg provides the functionality to stop users from viewing certain pages.
This is also useful when setting up a membership site.

- Scroll down until you find the Content Restriction Tab:

You can also use this plugin to check whether a user is logged in or not.
Note: Groundhogg uses the tracking cookie or contact details for this operation. So, if you are checking for a specific tag the user’s cookies need to be set.
