Using the Dolphin 7 Page Access Control System
Written by Mscott Saturday, 17 December 2011
Hello and welcome! In today’s blog, we are going to learn how to use the “Page Access Control” module in Dolphin 7. Before we begin, we need to install the module. A step by step guide on installing the Dolphin 7 base modules can be found here.
Once we have the module installed, we can access it by clicking “Page Access Control” under the “Modules” heading on the left side menu.
In this example, I will show you how to block non-members from accessing any of the blogs on your site. Start by typing “blogs/” into the blank labeled “Access URL Template”.
Now, place a check mark beside “Non-Member” in the forbidden groups section.
Now, click “Add” at the bottom. You should now see your new access rule and any rules you add in the future on this screen.
Now anyone who is not a member of the site will not be able to access any of the pages that begin with blogs/
It is as simple as that! Now you are better equipped to control who is able to access any area of your site. Until next time, happy social networking!
