Basic steps:


A user loads the web page
Wants to view a post by clicking Read more...
A message box appears "Subscribe to view the article"


If the user is subscribed, they view without any message boxes, links or redirects. What is the best practice to allow a user to view an entire post by clicking a Read more... only after subscribing?

I don't see where cookies comes into it. You need a server-side database of subscribers, who must naturally login. If not logged in, the "subscribe now" message is displayed.


All advice is supplied packaged by intellectual weight, and not by volume. Contents may settle slightly in transit.

I was hoping there would be a way that cookies play a part rather than the whole login system.

Cookies have no application to your issue. In any case cookies can be (are often are) deleted by the user - sometimes daily.

Yes true!
Fair enough, implementing a login system can be useful too.

Thanks again!
