Landing page for 'not logged in' users of private categories


(Michael Jonker) #1

At present, if a user follows a link from an email notification to a topic in a private group, they get to the landing page saying that the content does not exist.

If the content does exist, but is private, it would be good to display a message saying ‘log in to view’ and present a login box.

I think it is a better idea to improve the 404 page to have log in first.

The 404 page now shows a log in button.

Also @almereyda I am not convinced these are duplicates.
