Show Unpublished Articles to Registered Users [solved]

Post by timmiller » Mon Jan 15, 2018 8:34 pm

Hi Guys,

Wondering if this is possible. I looked at user access, but didn't really find anything.

Thanks in advance!

I'm unsure what you mean by "wondering if this is possible". Are you asking if it's possible to display unpublished articles to [logged-in] users who are members of the Registered group?

I don't believe so, since they are **unpublished**. The only user type that would see them would be those who are members of the editor, publisher, manager, administrator, super user groups.

Why is there a need for them to see unpublished articles - why not just publish them? (that achieves the same goal - allowing registered users to view articles.... ???)

I just don't understand *why* registered users (those in Registered group) would need to view unpublished articles.

Ok,

Quick scenario- I have one person who needs to view unpublished articles before their publish date, but I wanted a simple way for them to do this. I didn't think about making them editor or above. Done now, they are happy.

Now they can simply login and see unpublished articles without going into the backend.

Thanks guys. Simple problem solved.
