BlueSpicePageAccess allows only a certain user group access to the page.

The restriction is achieved by inserting the tag pageaccess on a page. Access restriction per page is done on a group basis. "Access" here means all actions, including read and edit. To avoid that this mechanism accidentally blocks access for all users, users in the group "sysop" always have access to the page.

Example: <bs:pageaccess groups="editor" />
