Full Version: Site with public & private section
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
I want to build a simple information site (read-only, no need for any user interaction)
Part of the website is to be public, i.e. readable for everyone.
The biggest part of the website will be "internal" and only be readable for a defined group of people.
(People living in our housing association)

There will be no "sensitive secrets" in the internal section, so simple security  will do.
I am thinking that internal users will just have to type in a (common for all internal users) password to be
allowed access to the internal section of the site.

Any suggestions on how to accomplish this with GS?
I have been trying various plugins, but not found a working solution...

I did actually download and try several plugins...

However, the instructions for Front-end-login says:
Step 1:Drag The contents of user-login.zip into the plugins folder
Step 2:Protect Desired Pages
Step 3: Include plugin functions in theme

I have no problems with steps 1 & 2, but step 3 is certainly not self evident for me.
Admitted, my knowledge of php and the internals of GS is only very basic, but this has not impeded me in building a few web-sites with GS up until now...(including sucessfully using some plugins..)
