    I am using aMember with WordPress. I have two product categories A & B.

    If the customer purchases product category A, they have access to certain posts. Same with product category B.

    But I have special posts I want to offer to people who have purchases both A AND B. It looks looks like all aMember protection is A OR B. I've tried all sorts of combination of protection settings for the post and WordPress post categories, but if the member has either A or B, they get access to this special content.

    What am I missing? Is aMember unable to protect for both-and, so it simply protects either-or?

    Thank you for any help!

    Thanks for the idea thehpmc, but that creates other issues. It actually just shifts the problem to a different point in the timeline. Instead of deciding what posts to show them based on what they've purchased, I'm deciding what product to sell them based on what they've already purchased.

    Is there no way to protect content based on a "logical AND" combination of products?

    OK, remember I have no idea of structure of your site so whether following is workable.

    Have your common pages outside direct control of aMember as plain PHP pages.

    Now use the aMember api/lite function (http://www.amember.com/docs/API/Lite) to determine if visitor has membership of 'A' or 'B' and only display those pages if they do. If they don't have required membership then redirect them to a sales page where they can join up with you.
