Hi,
Our new Intranet will have seperate areas/sets of WP pages for different departments within our organisation.
Is it possible to have a page for a department only display the area of folders/sub folders that are applicable to them?
e.g.
IT's page would have a view of only the IT folder, sub folders and its documents
HR's page would have a view of only the HRfolder, sub folders and its documents
What would be the best way to approach this?
Thanks
Jonny

Yes, you can set the category is private to a specific group user.

Thanks, that is helpful to know.

Although what I was thinking wasn't really about hiding files from a security point of view. It was more about only showing certain directories depending on where you are on the wordpress site.

e.g.
Directory is...
Category 1
Category 2
Category 3

On the IT page, all users only see Category 2
On the HR page, all users only see Categroy 3
On the main documentation page, all users see Category 1, 2 & 3

Yes, it depends on the way you insert the Category into your pages.
So you just put the Category 2 to IT page, the Category 3 to HR page,...

Hope it helps!
