In this lesson we are going to learn what the different classifications of users in Joomla are.
In Joomla there are two classifications of user groups:
Back-end user groups consist of Manager, Administrator, and Super Administrator. Back-end users can create, edit and update content in your site by logging into the administration control panel of your Joomla site.
- Managers: they have the privilege to access the content in the Backend. They can manage articles, sections and categories but they do not have access to user management and other components of Joomla like installing a component or modules.
- Administrator: they have access to most of the functions of Joomla except that they can’t modify the site template and global configuration. They can manage users except for the Super Administrator.
- Super Administrator: all of the functions in Joomla are given to this user group. Only another Super Administrator can modify a Super Administrator user account
