Could have put it all in the title if space allowed!!
but anyway, looking for a generic
way to only allow logged in users' to page all content that's pageable. anonymous users would be able to see initial results page (be that articles, posts or search results) and indicators of how many pages of paged data exist (i.e. it would all look normal enough until the 2nd page  was clicked) something to the effect that 'this page is only viewable to subscribers, to enjoy the benefits...bla bla etc..'
an example of what i'm after can be found here:
as i said, i could 'hack' it in code per page, but was wondering if there were a 'clever' authentication method to do this on a generic/specified level.
