Add a Lock Icon to WooCommerce Memberships Restricted Posts

We’ve gotten this question a few times, most recently from Jon: Can I add a lock icon before restricted posts?

We got an interesting question this week from a developer: Is there a way to show Membership Plan Names in a “content restricted” notice instead of products to buy? In this case, the site wasn’t selling Memberships, but rather taking applications for them, so the plan names made more sense. This question can show us a couple interesting concepts today to look at: (1) creating a helper method to get plans that restrict a product,…
