Restrict page visibility to groups or roles

When there’s information on your site that you want disseminated to specific groups of constituents at your school, you can use the Page Settings menu to restrict access of that page to only those groups or roles you desire. Anyone who wants to view the page will have to be logged into the site and a member of the designated group.

If you want to hide the page from general access without requiring users to log in, you may want to protect the page with a password instead.

Using access control

  1. Navigate to the page you want to password-protect.

  2. Click the pink gear icon to bring up the Page Settings window.

  3. Select the "Access Control" tab.

  4. Select the "Constituents Only" radio button.

  5. Click "Select Groups."

  6. Use the "Roles" section to select a role or roles.

    Underneath Roles, all of the groups from Group Manager are displayed. Use the checkboxes to select which roles or groups will be able to see this page.

Note: This feature uses "OR" logic, so if you select more than one group, a constituent would only have to belong to one of them in order to view the page (they do not have to belong to ALL groups selected.)

Anybody who is not a member of at least one of the selected groups will not see the page on the site or in the site navigation. Further, even members of the selected groups/roles must be logged into the website in order to see group- or role-limited pages; if they're not logged in, they will not see the page.
