A-Z glossary of PageSeeder concepts


The conventional meaning for ‘public’ refers to an external, often anonymous, community. In PageSeeder, ‘public’ means anyone NOT in the same group

A helpful rule for PageSeeder solutions is that roles filter functionality and groups filter content’. Or put another way, because every group member can see all content, permission models are expressed as constraints on the ‘public’ not the ‘members’.

To make the group visible to public:

Group configuration – Visible to public

To allow comments added by public:

Group configuration – Comments added by public

To make comments accessible to public:

Group configuration – Comments accessible by public

To control whether non-members can see documents in the group use the Public option on the Group Folders page.
