Testing Leaky Paywall on a live site

It's easy to test Leaky Paywall on a live site.

Here's how:

  1. Set up all your restrictions and subscription plans
  2. Under the Subscriptions tab set the meter to 999 to offer essentially unlimited access (see screenshot 1)
  3. Find a low traffic article and use the Visibility setting on the edit screen to lock down that article so it's available only to a specific plan(s) (see screenshot 2)
  4. Log out and visit that article directly and it will trigger the subscription nag.
  5. Test the transaction and check your welcome email 
  6. If everything looks good and is working smoothly then take the paywall live by editing the meter to the number of free articles you wish to allow
