Content View Permissions?

Does Orchard allow you to specify what role(s) can view content? For example, Administrators can see a particular page, menu item, or blog but Anonymous users cannot.

Not out of the box. See this thread: http://orchard.codeplex.com/Thread/View.aspx?ThreadId=229192

Thanks for your reply. Based on your answer and the link you posted, is it accurate to conclude that:

  • Orchard does not support this behavior out of the box, and
  • To get this behavior to work in a custom module would be problematic or difficult at best, and
  • Modifications to the core would be necessary to get this behavior to work with standard content items (menu items, page items, etc...)

?

Yes, at least for now.

That's too bad. I was really looking forward to using Orchard for my project. :(

So far you guys have done a awesome job and I look forward to seeing the project develop. I hope you listen to the feedback of early adopters to determine what gets in the development roadmap. Obviously, view permissions is a big one from my perspective. Is there a place I can post feature requests?

Thanks again!
