Sometimes, instead of blocking off member pages completely, you may want to allow non-members to see that content exists, and use their page access as an opportunity to offer them membership access.  You can display teaser content, giving them a small view of what they would get with membership, and/or refer them to your sales page, offering them instant access if they upgrade. 


To do this you would need to use the MM_Access_Decision SmartTag

Below is an example of how you would show teaser content and full content on the same page based on whether someone is a member or not. In the first snippet we are only showing content to non-members while the second snippet is only visible to members.


[MM_Access_Decision access='false']


Non-members will only see things inside these tags. 

Here is your teaser content.

When using these SmartTags, only the content within the SmartTags is protected. Read this article to learn more about protecting the page itself.
