How to require login on users before acceding the website V9

I would like to know if I could display a login page to my users as a frontpage and deny the non-logged users access to the website.

I tried editing the access rights for "website" and "access_website_menu" with a specific group that all my users have, but if I change any of them (or both) I cannot access the login page.

Thanks for your help,

Have you see the Website Security App?

"Give availability to restrict website menus and pages to some groups"


Hi Ray, Thanks for the module name, I hadn't seen it yet. I installed it and I could hide the menu elements from an anonymous user. But it seems to work fine with pages, but when I tried to hide the shop (/shop) it hides it, but you can still access it if you enter the correct URL. Any idea what I am not doing right ? Cheers

Hello clement

if not request.session.uid:    
    return login_redirect()

you can write on your website controllers maybe it will work for v9 bcoz it works for v8 if user not login then it automatically redirect this to login page when user tries to access website
