Restricting a page

You can add restrictions to any page (but not folders) to keep the content secure. Restrictions are split into two groups—"allowed" and "blocked." If there are no allowed restrictions, the default is to allow any visitor to view the page. In essence, these pages are visible to the public. Blocks will always overrule allows, but you can only add blocks if you have at least one allowed restriction.

Using allowed restrictions

You can use allowed restrictions to limit who can see and use a certain page by requiring visitors to log in. For instance, you can restrict a page to just approved residents only. Or, you can restrict a page to a custom group of residents you've created (i.e. board members).

Using blocked restrictions

You can use blocks to stop someone from viewing a page. For instance, you can block a resident who's abusing, say, the forum from seeing and posting to it. Or you could block a renter from seeing content meant for homeowners only.

Managing restrictions

1. Visit the pages section of the Admin Control Panel.

3. Add any "allowed" and "blocked" restrictions as needed. It is important to remember that any "blocks" will override an "allow." For example, if you block renters from viewing a page, but allow board members, if one of the board members is a renter they will be blocked from viewing that page.

4. Save the restrictions.

Why can you not restrict folders?

Since folders themselves do not contain any content (instead, they group similar pages together in the menu structure for organization purposes), you cannot add restrictions to folders. This also helps reduce any uncertainty on how potentially conflicting restrictions would be applied if you set different restrictions on a folder and on a page within that folder.
