With WordPress it is not possible to limit access to specific pages of a site. However, if you need pages or an entire site with restricted reading access, you need to make a new site request. You will then get a new site that includes all the features of a standard site but for which you can limit the reading access to the group(s) of people of your choice.
The creation and management of groups is done via https://groups.epfl.ch. You will find documentation on the help page (French only).
Important: Make sure that the LDAP and AD option is enabled, otherwise the group cannot be used with WordPress
Who can access ?
|Who | Location||On campus||Outside of campus|

Note : the writing access rights to a site have not changed and therefore remain managed by Accred.
