Any pages that have their visibility set to private will be ommitted by the menu for any user that is a guest. When a user logs in those private pages will appear in the navbar.

Private pages may not appear in the page list from the menu creation tool. Instead simply use the search box to find the private page, and then add it as normal to the menu.

On the left, the menu items Forums and My Account are only available when the member is logged in.

If you have any feature requests, problems or questions please use the comments section at the bottom of the page.
