Restricting Pages

Restricting pages to certain groups or users can be beneficial for websites that have memberships, or simply want to capture more user data.

This can be useful in the following circumstances:

  • Restricting viewing of your website until a guest registers
  • Restricting certain pages or information to members only
  • Restricting pages to certain groups, so only certain groups can gain access to relevant areas

You can restrict pages on the Attributes and Security tab inside the page editor screen.
