An entire site can be set to private. This is ideal for an Intranet of a large school or department.
Only Site Administrators are able to modify settings.
- Log into the site
- Go to Settings > Reading : Site Visibility.
- Restrict access to:
- All active UConn NetID's
- All Users of this site
- Admins and Editors
- Admins and Editors of the site, and the following NetID's
- List the NetID's in the box.
- Save Changes
Having a private site will limit the access to the site/pages and any media files (images, documents and etc.) within the site. A user is required to login using their NetID to view the private site and will be prompted to do so when accessing a media file directly. When a site is set as private, all media files are moved to a private folder thus changing the URL.
Keep in mind that these sites do not meet legal standards for security.
