Hi,

in the 'access' tab it's really easy to set a page so it can only be access by logged in members, or specific groups. But i'm wanting a page to only be visible (and shown in the menus) when the user is logged out.

Has anyone come across an easy solution for this?

In Page.ss:

<% if CurrentMember %>

<p>A logged in person can see this</p>

<% else %>

<p>A logged out person can see this</p>

<% end_if %>

Have fun!

that will work for the page content itself, assuming the page has it's own page type and tempalte, but i'm really looking at something that will remove the item from the menu...

Yes you will need to either edit the existing Page.ss or create your own Page Type.

In Navigation.ss:

<% if CurrentMember %>
<ul>
   <% control Menu(1) %>   
      <li><a href="$Link" title="Go to the $Title.XML page" class="$LinkingMode"><span>$MenuTitle.XML</span></a></li>
   <% end_control %>
</ul>
<% else %>
<ul>
<li><a href="">Viewable by Logged Out Link</a></li>
</ul>
<% end_if %>

This can also be achieved other ways, I'm just trying to keep it simple.

thanks... You're example would replace the whole menu, which is fine if this is what you need. in my case i just have a few pages. However, you've got me thinking, and I think i'll just need to add another tickbox to the behaviour tab, and then do something like this

<ul>
<% control Menu(1) %>
<% if CurrentMember %>
<% if DontShowToLoggedInMemebers %>
<% else %>

<li><a href="$Link" title="Go to the $Title.XML page" class="$LinkingMode"><span>$MenuTitle.XML</span></a></li>

<% end_if %>
<% else %>

<li><a href="$Link" title="Go to the $Title.XML page" class="$LinkingMode"><span>$MenuTitle.XML</span></a></li>

<% end_if %>
<% end_control %>
</ul>

that should work! thanks
