Description

It would be super useful to have an option to make a site visible only to members of a specific group or groups. We're running an open pedagogy seminar and would like an easy way for faculty participants to share their work with each other. Since the sites they're developing are works in progress, they're not so keen on making them available to everyone in the Commons. There are more than 30 faculty in the seminar, so adding everyone manually would not be practical. This would also be useful for classes in which students are creating their own sites or portfolios.

Hi Gina,

This functionality currently exists. To use it, associate the site with the group from the group management panel. You can sync members from the group to the site, and then set the privacy options for the site to be visible only to members of the site.

My understanding was that you can only associate one site with a group and that you need to be the administrator of that site to do so. In this case, we would like to make 30+ sites visible to group members and the group admins may not be site admins.

Hi Gina,

A simpler solution, then, would be to ask any faculty who feel that way to enable the "Password Protected" plugin. That will add a password protection page that people will have to pass through before they can see the site. If everyone uses the same agreed-upon password, that will keep things simple.

Yes, good idea!
