How to Hide a WordPress Sidebar Widget from Logged In Members

Are you trying to hide a WordPress Sidebar Widget from members that are logged in to your website? This tutorial will explain how to get it done quickly and easily.

In my memberships, I like to place a prominent “Join Now” at the top of my sidebar widget. Once you’re a member, however, you don’t want to see it any more. Here’s how to fix that problem in WordPress.
