I have a tab with sub-tabs that I want to have protected so that the content is only visible when the user has logged in... that is easy enough to accomplish (just set the rights to "registered users")... however, when I set the rights to be for registered
users only, the tab completely disappears from my menu. I would like all of the pages to show up as options in the menu, but just redirect to the login page if the user hasn't authenticated yet. Is there any way to accomplish this? This is probably something
very simple, but I am still pretty new to this.
By the way, I am using DNN 2 (I'm not allowed to upgrade due to restrictions placed by the host).

Put the login module (Account Login) on the page and make it available to Unauthenticated Users only. What will happen is non logged in users will see that when they go to that page and logged in users will see your tabbed control.

Just to make sure I get what you are saying I basically set the authentication requirement on the module level as opposed to the tab level... is that right? So I guess that means I would need to do this on every page as opposed to just making a whole section
of the site like this?
Thanks for your quick response and help.
