Error message when going to page for registered users

posts: 14

Our running club has a wiki on which we have recently set the permisisons so that only registered users can view and edit it. We plan to give members of the club details of an account which is registered and which they can use to log in to the page.

The trouble is that the first time they go to the page, when they have't yet logged in, they see a big red 'Error' message followed by 'You do not have permission to view this page.' There is a small 'Log in' icon above but it is easy to miss. See attached screenshot.

Would it be possible to replace the error message by something friendlier, such as 'This page can only be viewed by registered users. Please log in to view the page.'

Or is there some other workaround we can use to make the entrance to the wiki page more friendly?

Hello,

Enable "On permission denied, display login module" from the Control Panels => General => Navigation => Redirects (tiki-admin.php?page=general#contentadmin_general-3)

Or you can create a more elaborate solution with a plugin group in the default homepage.
Anonymous sees a sign-in / sign up message with a login module while registered users sees a different content.

Hope this help

A quick supplementary question: is it possible to change the wording of the log-in page for a page that is viewable only by registered people?

At present the log-in page says:

Please log in
Permission denied

We would like to change it to something like:

This page is for club members only
