In this article, I will show you a step by step guide on how to make you Elgg network entirely private.

Some of our Elgg users are running private networks. However, some of the pages were available for everybody. They want to keep all of the information for logged in users only and wanted an easy way to do this. Elgg provides this, and it is easy to do!

1. First sign in as an Admin and go to the Administration Dashboard.

2.  Then go to menu “Configure -> Settings -> Advanced Settings” and check Restrict pages to logged-in users:













3. Hit save after that and that’s it! Your network is totally private. Any content created before or after restricting pages for logged in users will be also private.

This now concludes how to make everything private in Elgg 1.8
