Restrict access to a language



Is there an easy way to restrict access to a language e.g., if anyone goes to that site that isnt logged in, they will see just a login screen?

I have tried adding a location for it but it appears not to work

Nope. Not an easy way that I know of at least if you use language versions of the same page.

Unless you have it in a separate branch in the tree structure...then it's easy.

Hi, you have access settings per language in admin mode, you should be able to use that, have you tried?

Ah I missed that one!

Doesn't that just cater for Adding or Editing landuage assets?, can that be used to lock out anonymous users from viewing that language?

It should be that if you remove Anonymous from a language, users cannot access the entire language. I haven't been in need for the feature, so I think you'll have to test it, it should be pretty easy.

Sadly i have tried it and it only caters for change permissions not viewing the language anonymously, oh well thank you for your help!

Guess it makes sense not to have access rights on language level on content. A lot of extra complexity with few real benefits. Guess you'll have to settle with hiding the language from the user...
