Node Page Disable

module_name
node_page_disable
Description

Adds an checkbox labelled 'Retain /node as an active url?' to /admin/config/system/site-information

This lets you disable the /node page which would otherwise list all published content.

Note it doesn't let you individual disable /node/xxx access by content type - see restrict_node_page_view or rabbit_hole for that.

This is for D7 only - in D8 you go to /admin/structure/views and disable /node there.

Rabbit hole

module_name
rabbit_hole
Description

Lets you set display, access denied, redirect or programmatic accessing for direct access to nodes.

However, note that includes both /node/xxx and the node alias, i.e. you can't just use it to restrict numeric URLs, the human friendly ones will get blocked too - so restrict_node_page_view might be more appropriate.

There's a series of submodules (such as rh_node) and without enabling them you won't see any options in the UI.
(look for the Rabbit Hole tab when editing nodes, for example).
