  1. Sweet Snippet!!
    but leaving the space empty for non-member visitors would be too boring. how about inserting some text-message for non-member visitors, like “You must be logged in to view this content” or something like that?

    Oh, and thanks for the good work!!

    1. just return something other within return ‘some text’; and not blank should do the trick.
