Patron Plugin Pro Documentation
Protecting excerpts in listings
When any post, post type or content or even entire site is marked patron only, they will be still visible without protection in post listings or other type of archives.
In this case, you can set “Yes” in “Protect Excerpts in Listings” option in Patron Pro settings’ ‘Content Locking’ tab in your WP admin…
…and also visit your WordPress setting’s “Reading” section to make sure that the “For each article in a feed, show” option is set to “Summary”.
After this, Patron Plugin Pro will start protecting excerpts in listings for protected content, and will show visitors a notification banner which encourages to become patrons to view the protected content.
