Griffith University portals and index pages navigate to a wide range of websites. The majority of Griffith websites are created in the CMS so they can be easily maintained by local staff who act as publishers for the sites.

Other websites have specific needs that are not reasonably met using the CMS. These can be created using other technologies.

Restricting CMS content

It is Griffith Policy to have all content publicly available wherever appropriate. However, there are times when it is appropriate to restrict access to some or all of a site's content. The Portals and Search team can assist staff who wish to restrict access to CMS content to an appropriate target audience.

In the CMS, content can be restricted to one or more of the following user groups:

  • senior leaders
  • Griffith staff
  • anyone with a Griffith sNumber

CMS websites must have an address starting with "…" to have some or all content restricted. Restricted pages have a special URL and secure content; otherwise these sites are managed with the same tools as all other CMS pages and sites.

If you would like us to restrict access to your "…" site or its content, submit the 'Access restriction request form' below.

Access restriction request form

If your site has an address starting with…" it cannot be be secured. However there are various other options including:

  • moving part or all of the site to an appropriate address that can be secured
  • creating all or part of the site on another site that can be secured
  • creating documents ( PDF, etc ) at a secure address and linking to them on your existing site

The Portals and Search team can discuss options with you.

Please email us with a link to your sites, a brief explanation of your requirements, and your contact details.
