Plugin Description:

Multi-User Plugin For User Management, User Creation & User Restrictions/Permissions

Edit User: You are able to edit all the options for each user, including permissions and custom permissions added by other plugins.

Add User: You are able to add a new user and set permissions

Permissions: You can individually block certain features and areas for each individual user. This includes removing the items from the navigation, as well as blocking access to the area/item if the user tries to access it directly. Additionally, other plugin developers can add custom permissions which can be used by their plugin to restrict users access to desired areas of the their plugin.

The Following Areas Can Be Blocked Using The Permissions:


Changes: Version 1.1 (4/11/2011)

  • Links in Admin Panel footer will now be hidden based on permissions set

  • Added 'Disable Admin Access' Checkbox:

    • If Checked, the user will not be able to manage users or access the 'user management' screen.

    • The ability to select an alternate landing page the user will land on after login (useful if 'pages' is disabled)
  • Language files installed will automatically show up in the 'Language' dropdown
