How can I restrict access to a whole page but not excerpts?

Nick McCarty Jul 28, 2016

We are wanting to have a page dedicated to a product. On that page there will be information that we want to pull to our public facing product landing pages. But some information we do not want the public to see.


I have set up the Visibility and Multiexcerpt add-ons but the issue is that I still have to have the page itself viewable to anonymous. But I don't want anonymous access to the whole page.


Any ideas or other add-ons that can remedy this?

Try this workaround. Add a page at root (so it doesn't appear in the left-hand ToC) and set its visibility to allow anonymous view (yes the page can be viewed, but when it is at doc root level, they would have to know where it is).

Place all your excerpts on the special page. Include the excerpts on both the internal and public pages. Now your content is visible on both, and you get around the permissions issue. Also having a standard _includes page can make it easier to manage lots of common content.
