Currently I want to keep my site slim without having to install big modules to do a small function. I know I can use the content_access module to restrict a user role to view a specific content type, but I was wondering how can this be done without any additional modules installed.
I have a content type of "widget" and I don't want it view-able by anonymous users. It should only be viewed by staff. How can you restrict/hide this content type from anonymous users without installing a module for it?
