I know what I would like to do, but I do not know how to search to find the best solution. I have a list of URLs on a list that link to stories. I do not want the user to see the entire list of URLs.

So I was thinking of creating a new page and add a web part for each URL I want the user to see. But I do not know the best way. Would I use a content editor web part? OR a content query web part? I believe scripting will be required to pull the data, right?

UPDATE: The page that list the URL/titles is NOT a SharePoint page, but a third party web page. I only want the URLs that are relevant.

  • What determines if you want a user to see a URL or not? Could you just add a 'Show In List' boolean column to your list, and then create a view filtered by Show In List = Yes? – Ted N. Nov 3 '15 at 22:08
  • What is your logic for showing a URL (List item) to a particular user? Have you tried enabling target audience in the list settings? – HarryB Nov 3 '15 at 22:08
  • if you enable target audience then you can use a content query web part to pull items and apply audience filtering. – HarryB Nov 3 '15 at 22:14
  • @TedN. Thank you for response. That is create suggestion. I just updated my question. The page that list the URLs/Titles is not a SharePoint page. Sorry for the confusion. – SharePoint Lady Nov 3 '15 at 22:42
  • @HarryB Thank you for your response and very good points. I updated the question. The page that lists the URLs/titles is not a SharePoint page. It's a third party page (i.e. news hot topics). I don't want to show the whole list. So, I thought I could call particular URLs to a web part. I guess this could be similar to a RSS Feed Web Part but not my intentions are. You said a content query web part would be the best way, right? – SharePoint Lady Nov 3 '15 at 22:46
