> Hi Harry.
> You ask two questions, for which I offer two answers:
> 1) The proper way to make some content visible to members only is to 
> setup a workflow for that content type.  In the published state (or 
> whatever you choose to call it), select permission settings that only 
> make it visible to members.  For the proper permission settings, you 
> will need to look at the "Actions" tab of each content type 
> inside the 
> portal_types tool.
> 2) Other groupings in this case would be Roles.  I wouldn't use local 
> roles for this.  Rather (IMHO) in the acl_users folder at the portal 
> root, setup the roles you desire (family, etc.) and assign 
> these roles 
> to the appropriate users.  Then, you'll need to setup the 
> permissions on 
> the workflows accordingly.
> FWIW, when I mention setting up workflows, most people use the 
> DCWorkflow product: http://cmf.zope.org/Members/hathawsh/DCWorkflow/
> If you need instructions on setting up new content types 
> (that might be 
> visible to members only), see my email (in the archives

> 'Overriding standard_html_header'.
