Limit access to language branch



A client wishes to enable a new language on their website, but doesn't want anonymous users to be able to see these translated pages until they are done working with them.

Is there a simple way to achieve this with access rights in edit/admin mode? I tried looking through documentation for this, and changes some settings on the languages and access rights in the page structure.

Hi Thore,


What version of EPiServer are you using?

If one of the newer then you should be able to go to admin mode -> Config tab -> Manage Website Languages -> %TheNewLanguage% and here set what users/groups should be able to access that language.

Can't you just tell the users to hit "Save and View" until they are happy? Once they are happy they can publish the pages.

Hi Petter

I think permission on languages (in CMS 6 via language permission as you described above) only control which languages should be available for different editors groups/users for translations while in episerver edit mode . It doesn't control the public access for anonymous user.  ?

I recently had to achieve similar functionality and done in a slightly different way.
