    echo 'Welcome, registered user!';
} else {
    echo 'Welcome, visitor!';
};
?>

Create Shortcode For Logged In Users

To turn this into a shortcode so you can use it in your posts you can just use the below snippet add this into your functions.php page.

function member_only_shortcode($atts, $content = null)
{
    if (is_user_logged_in() && !is_null($content) && !is_feed()) {
        return $content;
    }
}
add_shortcode('member_only', 'member_only_shortcode');

To use this shortcode in your post use the following code.
