Suppose that you have set up the News module as the "Homepage module" of your PHP-Nuke, but you want the news articles to be visible only to registered users. Can this be done?
Well, not exactly. Since you want the News module to be visible only to registered users, you cannot have it in the "Home". This means you must put a different module in Home (see hide articles from logged out users). You can do this from the "Put in Home" link in the modules table shown in the modules
administration panel (Section 7.1, Figure 7-19).
Once the News module is not in Home anymore, you can edit it and choose that it be visible only by the registered users.
The "Who can View This?" selection box is not available, as long as the module remains the "Home" module of your P HP-Nuke installation. That's why you can't restrict the visibility of the Home
module, no matter which module this is. T he reason for this is that it makes little sense to have a Home module and restrict its availability only to registered users, unless you want your site to
be generally available only to registered members.
