Introduction

By protecting links, you can control the links available to a user when they login. In this section, you can select the user group to display a link to.

NOTE: This will not protect content. If someone knows the link url, he will be able to open link without any problem. This just controls what additional links a user will see after login to member's area.

Accessing Links Configuration Options

  1. Select "Protect Content" from the options on the left side of the screen.
  2. The content protection page will be displayed. Click on the "Links" button. The Links setup page will be displayed.

  3. In the "Title" field, enter a name for the link. This will be displayed to the customer.
