Thanks @RyanF , I appreciate that clarity and was thinking that may have been the case.
I’m trying to build some micropayments functionality so that a member can pay to get access to just one post. Ideally I would have a way to attach metadata to a user, in a way that the metadata can be available from the templating layer. It seems this isn’t possible?
Alternatively I could tag each post with the names of users who have access. However, that will result in a lot of tags per post.
Have you any other suggestions?
I suppose the last alternative is to conditionally show content after posting to an external that returns the status of the member with respect to that post.
This won’t be trivial to implement because you have payments, users, auth, content, and integration. You’d need to set up some kind of proxy service (server, db) that uses the Admin API in conjunction with other APIs/SDKs.
Yeah agreed, I’ve been able to build a plugin pretty easily for WordPress but it’s just challenging here because I either have to really get into Ghost core, or, as you said, replicate a lot in a proxy service.
I appreciate the answers, nonetheless. I’ll mark this resolved.
