MemberMouse's default content protection scheme is to hard-block pages that are protected. This means that if a non-member tries to view a protected page, they'll be redirected to an error page. MM_Access_Decision SmartTags™ provide you with an opportunity to expose portions of protected content based on the visitor's access rights.
Within a single page, you could have teaser content for non-members and protected content for paying members. By using the MM_Access_Decision tag with different access types you can custom tailor each visitor's experience on the page or post.
IMPORTANT NOTE: As soon as you use MM_Access_Decision SmartTag™ on a page/post, you're instructing MemberMouse to bypass the standard hard-block protection mechanism. This means that as soon as you use one of these tags, any content outside of a MM_Access_Decision access=” tag, will be visible to anyone who accesses the page/post.
For example, when you use the MM_Access_Decision access='false' tag on a page, you're instructing MemberMouse to allow everyone to access that page and that you'll control what they can see by placing content within the appropriate MM_Access_Decision tag.
Placing content outside of the MM_Access_Decision access=” tag gives you an opportunity to insert content that everyone should see while only entering it once, but just be aware that it will not be protected and everyone can see it.

In this example, we're creating an access decision for the current post/page. By setting access to ‘false' we're indicating that this content should be seen by a visitor, or member if they currently do not have access to the current post/page. For example, if they do not currently have access they'll see the text:

Teaser Content for Members Only
[MM_Access_Decision access='future'] You don't have access to [MM_Content_Data id='22' name='title'] yet. You will get access on [MM_Content_Data id='22' name='dateAvailable']. [/MM_Access_Decision]
In this example, we're creating an access decision for the post/page with ID '22'. By setting access to ‘future' we're indicating that this content should only be seen by a member if they will have access to the post/page with ID '22' sometime in the future.
For example, if they don't currently have access but will sometime in the future, they'll see the text:
You don't have access to My Protected Page yet. You will get access on March 20, 2024.
