    Hi Santhosh – To do this, I think you’ll need a few things.

    1. You’ll need to find a LearnDash function that checks to see if the post is restricted to the current user. I would think something exists in the LearnDash developer docs here, but you could also ask LearnDash support.

    2. Then you’ll need to either use a hook to hook into a “before_title” or “before_post_title” type of hook (if your theme provides one), or customize the single.php template file in your theme/child theme, in order to add the icon.

    Best of luck.

    Thanks for the reply. But I’m not a developer and I don’t know much about coding. I can only copy-paste the code into code snippets plugin or edit theme files using FTP. Can you please share your code? I think this is the function https://developers.learndash.com/function/learndash_is_protected_meta/

      Sorry but I don’t have any code to share. I’ve never done what you’re asking. I was just trying to conceptualize it and provide you with an idea on how to achieve it.
