This inquiry was sent to us by email and I have listed it here for the benefit of others:
I checked the forums but could not find a way to restrict access to a particular page on a Joomla site I am working on. I would like the page to only be visible to people I give the SAME login and password to, so they can download a PDF. I do not want them to have to register and set up an account. The only extensions I have found are way too complicated for this intention. I read on support from Joomla that I can change the article to be accessed by Guest, Registration , Public or Special. When I did that...the page did not show, but what needs to be done in the settings to accomplish this. Thanks for any help or extension/plugin you can recommend.
