Joomla Tutorial for Version 1.5

Administrating Users

Users can be added or removed from the system by any back-end user of Manager level or above.  You may choose to grant permissions to the front end allowing others to contribute stories or web links if this is applicable to your site.

You may wish to encourage all visitors to register with the site, allowing them to build their preferred shortlists and helping you to build a marketing list.

You may allow highly trusted users access the back end administration section of the site in order to share the burden of administration.

In order to administer a user, log in to the back end at using the access settings we have given you.  Select Site > User Manager and click on the name of the user whose details you want to change.

A system exists to check the validity of new users’ email addresses. When a new user applies to join the site (from the front end) they are sent an email containing a link via which they can join.  The same effect can be achieved by an Administrator clicking the Enable button in a user profile in the back end.
