A simple way could be to write the private article in a private topic then copy the article and set the topic to public topic with a link to the private article at the end of the intro and remove the body.
Also hide your public topic from logged-In users.
OK, that would work. What do you think about using a sort of "trickle down" approach? The idea being to take advantage of the new "child" topics in GL 2.x - meaning -
Let's say for a Topic or Category such as "Corruption" I could create a child Topic or Category such as "Expanded" or "Full Text." Then the article in the base "Corruption" category would contain the Title, one line of text, possibly the photo. Then under that, as a "child" Topic "Full Text" - would be the full body of the expanded article, accessible only to paid subscribers and logged on users.
It would be a lot more work, because I would have to basically create two articles for every article published on the website - and I have about 19,000 articles published in the past eight years. I now average between ten to fifteen articles per day, so every additional keystroke or mouse click is significant.
I would like to find a way within the existing structure to accomplish the same thing, but without this solution of basically having to post two articles every time.
Does anyone else have any suggestions? Dirk?
