Mind Your Own Article !

If you have a Joomla website that allows visitors to add content to the front end, then it is necessary to ensure that each user mind’s own article. You would never like people peeking into each other’s hard work and editing it without necessary permissions. This can substantially put your visitor’s off. Well, before you get panicky, there’s a way out!

JoomlaPSD to Joomla gives you the option of restricting authors to editing only their own articles. Here’s the role you need to play in the entire process:

# Install the most current version of Joomla that is available online and access the administration section.

# Log into the admin panel. Under the ‘Site’ menu, click on the ‘User Manager’ option. Now, locate the users whose permissions you wish to change.

# Once you have located the user, ensure that they are listed as ‘Author’ under the ‘Group’ segment. By default, Joomla allows users to register in any of the four ways- as an author, as an editor, as a registered user or as a publisher. If the user has registered just as an author, then you need not do anything. The settings can remain intact.

# If the user has registered under some other role, you will have to add the user under the ‘Author’ category manually, as described above.

# Once you have made all the said changes, click on the ‘save’ button and exit the admin panel. Once the user has been assigned the designation of ‘author’, he or she has the ability of editing only the articles he or she has authored.

If you wish some user to edit all the articles that are posted on your Joomla portal, then you can assign the user the role of ‘Editor’. This way, the concerned user will be able to edit all the content that is posted on your website. PSD to Joomla conversion gives you the freedom to add various features to your web portal, restricting user permissions are one of them.
