    Hi,

    I am evaluating SiteFinity for my next project.  I understand that you can set user permissions for content editors but, if you have a Live Site that requires private content, can you set which sections (pages) are available to various roles.  Does this effect (add or remove) which options are displayed in the site top menu?

    In addition, rather than role-based permissions, is it possible to set user-based permissions on individual pages?

    Thanks,
    Tim

    Hello Timothy,

    Thank you for cjoosing to evaluate Sitefinity and for your questions.
    When you say 'permissions for content editors' do you mean 'Generic Content  permissions'?
    I will explain the basics of the Generic Content  permissions. They are applied to all generic content items, not for a single item as in pages. So if the user does not have View permissions, he will not be able to do anything with the Generic Content module. If the user has Create permission, but he does not have Modify permission, he can create new content items and then edit only his own items. If the user has Modify permission, he can also edit other users' items. These permissions are related only to the Administration (Cms users) now.
    As for the pages permissions, if you want make a page secure, you can check it's Deny anonymous access property from the page properties and then set the View permission for a specific role. Unfortunately, this will not have effect to the site map menu, because it is still not implemented (the task is in our TODO list).

    As for your last question, you can set only role-based permissions.
    Please let us know if you have a more specific task/question so we could give you a more appropriate answer.

    Greetings,

    At what point (timeframe or release) do you expect "deny anonymous access" to have an effect on the sitemap?  A key requirement of ours would be for items that are not accessible to certain users not to show up in the menu or on the site at all for them (like DotNetNuke).
