Re: Having different 'categorised' pages in one Structure

posts: 289 United States

This is a great question Geoff. I'm sure there's more than one way to skin a cat as they saying goes and some of the more experienced users might have better, cleaner ideas to achieve what you're trying to do.

Off the top of my head, while not the best approach it might get close to what you want and be relatively easy to do. Perhaps you could consider the use of the "GROUP" plugin, which hides or displays text according to what user group the current user is part of. I've taken the sample code directly from the Wiki page help below:

{GROUP(groups=>Admins|Developers)}wiki text{GROUP}
{GROUP(notgroups=>Developers)}wiki text for other groups{GROUP}

So you'd still have to create all pages under the structure for all users, it's just that different users would see different things. I agree that if it's possible, categories is probably the cleaner way to go but I don't have any experience of limiting individual pages within the structure to different user groups. Perhaps someone else can point you in the right direction.
