There are four different types of privacy in MindTouch:
- Site privacy – determines if a site can be viewed by the public or requires authentication.
- User types – controls the tasks users and groups are allowed to perform globally.
- Page privacy – determines if a page can be viewed by the public or requires special page permissions.
- Page permissions – controls the tasks specified users and groups are allowed to perform on the page.
Roles assigned in the control panel grant global privileges to users and groups; page permissions grant page privileges on individual pages or sections of pages.
How do I prevent online visibility?
If you are considering making your site private, STOP and perform the following test!
In Google, search for anything relating to our product. If Google surfaces third-party information on your product (i.e. information not authored by you), such as from Wikipedia or other websites, strongly consider taking control of the information circulated on the web. Create a handful of pages that inform the public and set your site up as a public site with private sections.
