I want to have a page in the navigation that will show a login to a password protected page, which I can set through Security Groups

I have looked through the forums, and have found this question asked before, but not a full answer. The closest I could find was:

I have been looking into setting Access permissions, but this hides the page.

Does anyone have an answer? or has this been done before?

Yea there is an easy way to do this - you will need to create two pages. The first is the secure page that you only want logged in users to be able to access and the second is a redirector page.

Create the page that will be secure then click on the "Access" tab, select that the page only be visible to logged in users.

Then create the redirector page and select that it redirects to your secure page but don't change the access permissions of it.

This will create a page that is visible to anyone but when they click on it it will redirect them to the secure page and thus display the login/password fields.

Hope this helps :)
