How to Drip Content / Delay Content in OptimizePress

"Dripping" content is the process of delaying the release of content in your membership site for your members.  It is often called "drip feeding" .

OptimizePress includes full drip content / delay content functionality which allows you to delay the release of your content to your members.

Please ensure you read the "Important Notes on Dripping Content" at the end of this guide after reading the setup steps

How to use our Drip content system

Important Notes on Dripping Content


1.  The drip content timer works counts from the date that your buyer or site member registers for your site.  This means we DO NOT recommend using dripped content on a site where your members may register at a different level first as the drip content timer will effectively start from that date - so they may get access to dripped content earlier than you expected or desired.

The Drip Content system is best suited to sites where you are delivering an individual training course on one site. 

We are working on an upgrade to the system which will count from the date that a user is registered to a specific level - but this is still in development at present

2. Drip content will not work at level 0 / Free subscriber level.  You must use Level 1 or above.  If you need to register free users at a level higher than 0 you can customize our free registration form following this guide here:  https://optimizepress.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/201128678

3. OptimizePress Membership Levels provide incremental access - so a level 2 user will have access to level 1 pages and content (unless it is also protected with a package/custom capability).  So users registered at Level 2 will also be able to access drip content protected with level 1 in line with the delays you set based on their registration date.

Common Questions

Can I send emails to my members when content is dripped / releasedOptimizeMember does not have a facility to email your members when content is dripped.  Instead, we recommend scheduling an email to be released via your autoresponder service in line with the timescales set in your drip settings.
