This feature allows your site administrators to add private content for each user by creating a private page. Unlike many other plugins, you don’t have to create separate page for each user. You can dynamically change the user specific private content inside a single page. Content in the private page will be only visible to logged in user. Administrators can add text and images into users private area using WordPress post editor.
