Topic: How to post news only for some users

Hi! First of all, thank you so much for this great news management system that I've been using for so many years http://cutephp.com/forum/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif

I would like to know if it's possible to post news only for some users, like Commenters, or Journalist, I mean, post something that only registered users can see http://cutephp.com/forum/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif

I would love to do that, is that possible?

Thank you so much!

Álvaro

Post the news into password protected directories and give your Journalists the password.

Hi Damoor!!! Thank you for answering, but what do you mean exactly with password protected directories? Can I create password protected directories with CuteNews?

Thank u again! http://cutephp.com/forum/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif

You should be able to create a directory and  password protect it using the control panel of your webserver.
Then put a newspage in that directory with the category for Journalists only.
Put a link to that page on your main website. When anyone clicks on the link to read that news page they will need to enter the password.
Google for .htpassword or .htaccess directories for more information.
