I have a view that relies on a specific content type to display images. The Content Type has a Title, a File Field, and a checkbox for show or don't show. The default setting for all nodes created using this Content Type is unpublished, so that users can't randomly access the node ( basically it's a slideshow that displays banner ads, accessing the actual node isn't a bad problem per se ).
This works great. As it turns out I also need a members only section for the site, so I installed Content Access. That works great for restricting access to the nodes I need restricted. However, I discovered that now the unpublished Slideshow nodes don't show.
My question is how to work around this. Will another access module work differently or is this a core feature? Could I write a small module to grant view access to the Slideshow nodes? Or barring all that, is there a module or ( I know it's probably off-topic) an htaccess recipe that would not allow direct viewing of the nodes of a certain type?
