4. Can I use ACL Manager on my Joomla 1.5 site?

No, that is not possible, sorry.

The ACL structure of Joomla 1.5 is completely fixed. Since the release of Joomla 1.6 you can define the permissions for groups and create additional groups for example. ACL Manager is using this new functionality/permission structure.

Changing permissions and adding new groups is not possible in Joomla 1.5, so ACL Manager will not work with Joomla 1.5 and is therefore not installable.

7. Is ACL Manager compatible with other extensions?

In ACL Manager you can set the basic permissions for any component. Even when a component does not support Joomla ACL out of the box. In those cases ACL Manager will add basic ACL support, so you can define which user group can see and access a component in the backend. Please read more about this: Basic Joomla ACL support for any component.

You will be able to manage additional actions by third party extensions that are using the Joomla ACL system as well in ACL Manager.

Third party extensions that are using their own permission system are not supported. Only those extensions that are using the Joomla core ACL system.

8. Why is ACL Manager not free, why do I need to pay?

By paying for your subscription I can continue to work on the development on ACL Manager (so your feature request & suggestions are welcome!) and provide you great support.
