Best way to have a private community site with a few public pages? (1 post)

    Hello WordPress community, looking for your opinion on the best way to go about this:

    I have a private user community site, think about it as a blog conversation between about 25 individuals. The site is accessed only by login, and there is a bunch of content inside. Right now we are using the "Members Only" plugin to limit/allow access.

    But now we are looking to, while still maintaining the privacy of the site, have a few pages of this site be able to be sent to people outside of the community (ie public), but not allowing access to the other parts.

    This seems to be more of the reciprocal/inverse of the normal use of WordPress I would imagine, where the site is public and a few pages are private. Essentially now the entire site is private with a few pages PUBLIC. Guest accounts are an option, but maybe there is something better and more obvious that I just seem to be missing.

    Thoughts on the best way to do this?
