I have a website that uses Private module in order set the access to the content, and of course some of my pages have menu items. Now if I set a page to be private, only users with proper permission could see that, which is great and what I wanted.
But I am having a bit of issue with the menu items, they disappear if the content assigned to them are not public (ie the page assigned to them is Private), this is OK but I would like to be able to still show those items in the navigation, so if user clicks on them, it will take them to the login page asking them to enter their details in order to see that particular page.
So basically I would like to change the behavior of the menu items the way that they will always be visible to anonymous and registered members of the website but when you click on them, you will be either able to see the page (if you are logged in) or be redirected to the login page (if anonymous)
I found this solution which is not the best one for me since I have many pages like that so I am looking for a better approach. I have even tried Menu item visibility module but that didn't help either!
How do I achieve this please?
