Make the 'Not authorised' error message more clear

    Students frequently receive an error message saying 'You are not authorised to access this page' when they are trying to click on pages that have not been published. This is confusing for them and provides the wrong message. It would save both our IT Helpdesk, and the Canvas Helpdesk time, if this message explicitly stated that the page in question had not been published instead. 


    I realise that this error message is used in other places in the system, for instance when a sub-account admin is trying to access account admin settings. In that case the message is appropriate, so it is further suggested that the functionality that leads to the two messages should be separated.
