I would like to have a standard “custom access error message” instead of copying and pasting it in to each page. How do I do that? Would it require a code customization? Also, do shortcodes work in the “custom access error message”? I would like to use a shortcode there.
You can set a default access error message at the “Setting->User Role Editor->Additional Modules” tab. URE will show it until you do not select ‘Show custom access error message’ for a restricted post at the post editor page.
Yes you can use shortcode inside content view access error message.
I do see the settings under My Sites > Network Admin > Settings > User Role Editor
Under the “Additional Modules” tab there is no message under “General” but under “Additional Modules” there is a Content View Restrictions heading with a “Message for post access error:” textbox. This is the one you are referring to correct?
So, I am presuming that there is no way to have a different message for a given site, there is only one message for the entire network, correct?
