Hi there. I have read through the section on creating a Trial
publication and attempted to follow it but maybe I don’t quite understand.
What I am attempting to do is create a TRIAL publication
where only 2 pages are accessible during the trial. These 2 pages should have
full access to links and downloads. The trial period should never end. I don’t mind
adding an end date if required, I would just make it 99 years in the future or
THEN, I want all other pages to be blocked from viewing if
they click on a link. But instead of blocking the page entirely I would like
the link to be redirected to a page that tells the user they must register to
access this page. I have a Registration in the publication page that gives them
details on how to do this, and this page is not blocked or restricted in any
I’ve created 2 Security profiles:
Default - this has no restrictions
Registered - all options to restrict are selected except
the option to lock the page.
In File Manager > File Properties:
- for the 2 pages - security profile is set to Default
- for all other pages - security profile is set to Registered
Here are the results when I run the publication:
For Unregistered - all pages are accessible, including
those pages I want blocked/redirected until registered. It is partially good news in that the pages
can’t be copied but the content and links are still available.
After Registration - all pages are still accessible and even
those pages that should be allowed to copy are not allowed. I was at least
expecting this to allow access to the page along with copy, etc.
I do apologize because it is a bit confusing for me.
