CMS User Managment
What is user registration?
By default casual visitors are allowed to register themselves on your website to gain access to additional resources. For example, registered users might be allowed to submit news items or web links. Your CMS website implements a user registration policy which can be adapted to suit your particular requirements so you decide what additional resources are made available. You can disable user registration altogether if you prefer.
Users register themselves on your website using the "Create an account" link on the Login Form module or the "Register" link on a Login Form page. Once registered, users will log in to your website by entering their username and password using the same form. There are also links on the form to manage users who forget their usernames or passwords. If you use the Login Form module you can assign the module so that it appears on one or more pages in any module position. Alternatively you can create a Menu Item which takes the user to a page where the Login Form will appear instead of regular content.
You can disable user registration but still have the Login Form module enabled or a Login menu item available. In this case there will be no "Create an account" or "Register" link shown on the Login Form and you will need to register users manually from the Administrator back-end. Once registered they will be able to login on the front-end as normal. This allows you to retain complete control over user registration.
Registration can be associated with a newsletter, online shop, forum etc. so when a visitor revisits your site and logs in there details and preferences are remembered.
Administrator (back end users) have different levels of access assigned by the "super admin".
Users, Groups, and Access Levels
There are 7 fixed groups and user can be assigned to only one group at a time but promoted to a more advanced or trusted level at any time by the super-admin.
These roles will decide not only what a user can view but also edit, create, delete.
