    Hi Team, 

    I have created a page  as "url"  with admin permission. Permissions not working with this page. Every user has able to access that   external link.
     Do you have suggestion regarding this issue?

      Permissions do not apply to external URLs. If you specify that the page is an URL (and in Page Settings this is referred to as an external URL) then the navigation generated is directly to that URL.

      You can create a regular DNN page (tab) that has permissions. Then have a redirect from that page to the URL, assuming it is external. You could do that with a meta tag or with jQuery or javascript in the page.

        To add to my comment: Permissions are honored in terms of showing the "page" in navigation.

        But, because the target URL is the external URL, DNN cannot apply permissions to that page.

          Indeed... Joe is spot on. We also have done some of the typical, "Redirecting you to [URL] in... [countdown]" style pages using this technique.
