Purpose of Mod

This mod is for those who have open access, i.e. no log-in required, to their TNG site and who wants to restrict access to certain selected sections. It allows access to certain sections for logged-in users only. Guests are redirected to the log-in screen if they try to access a 'protected' section.

Mod is only applicable to sites with:

Admin => Setup => General Settings => Privacy => Require Login = NO

Mod Developer
