Permissions

Permissions are determined by one of three access levels: Public, Registered, and Special. These three access levels correspond to the following user groups and determine their access:

Public

This level applies to general users and site visitors who don’t have an account. It could also be defined as guest users.

Registered

This level applies to all user groups that are Registered or higher, including Authors, Editors, Publishers, Managers, Administrators, and Super Administrators.

Special

This level applies to users that are either Administrators or Super Administrators.

If you need to find out more about what these user groups are able to do in Joomla, see Chapter 12 for an in-depth look at user permissions.

Section Permissions

To set permissions for an entire section, go to ContentSection Manger and choose the section you want to edit. Choose an Access Level in the field on the left and click Save.

Note

You can click the level name (Public, Registered, or Special) in the Access Level column of the Section Manager to rotate through each of these levels without opening the section itself.

Category Permissions

To set permissions for an entire category, go to ContentCategory Manger and choose the category you want to edit. Choose an Access Level in the field on the left and click Save.

Note

You can click the level name (Public, Registered, or Special) in the Access Level column of the Category Manager to rotate through each of these levels without opening the category itself.
