Google Sites: Users can't see parts of your Google Site.

Google sites has page level permissions that you can set up so that some users can see a certain part of a site that the public can't see.  Sometimes however the people you want to see that private page can't seem to find it.  It might be because they are not logged into the site.

An example:  I want the public to view a page with educational forms such as registration.  However there are other forms that I only want my teachers to view.  After setting up page level permissions, some of my staff still couldn't see the page.  That is because they weren't logged into the site.  Below is a real quick way for your users to log into the site so that they can see the correct page.


1.  Make sure you are logged into your Gmail account.

3.  You will notice that the page is not showing.  The image below show that a tab is missing.  I should have a page that says "District Forms."  This indicates that your user isn't logged into your site yet.

4.  Just scroll down to the very bottom of the page and click the "Sign in" link.

5.  After clicking the "Sign in" link the page will refresh and if you set up your page level permissions correctly your users will now see the new page.
