Search and navigation

If a user does not have view access to a particular content item, that item does not appear in search results, in navigation, or on the interface in any way. For that user, it is as if the content item does not exist.

  • Top navigation
  • Home page content directory (left or centre)
  • Home page quick poll
  • Home page news items
  • List of all polls
