Easily manage the permissions of Joomla websites with the clickable permission grid of the award winning ACL Manager.
A great overview of all Joomla ACL settings and discover & fix issues with the Joomla assets table easily.
Joomla has an advanced permission system, called Access Control List (ACL). This allows you to define which group can perform what actions on your website.
The available Joomla core actions are: Site Login, Admin Login, Offline Access, Super Admin, Access Administration Interface, Create, Delete, Edit, Edit State and Edit Own. You can set permissions for these actions on four levels: Global configuration, Components and if applicable for a Categories and Items. The Joomla ACL system is a great way to define groups with their own set of permissions.
Unfortunately you will probably not enjoy the Joomla ACL system immediately due the difficulty to comprehend. The inheritance of permissions between groups and levels, and the need to check the settings for a group on many areas makes it hard to keep overview of your permission settings.

I missed a permission overwiew in Joomla 1.6/1.7 and for me ACL was not easy to understand and needed a lot of reading and experimenting. By chance I found ACL Manager and immediately bought it. It is an excellent extension and very helpful in managing user and group permissions. I can recommend it to everybody not only those having problems with the concept of permissions and access levels. Very smooth installation and very easy to use.Tschumler
The cat's meow
I seldom write reviews on other developers' products, but ACL Manager is truly the cat's meow! It is exactly what is missing from Joomla! 1.7's ACL: a birds-eye view of ACL restrictions. Instead of having to go to countless components, click on the Options button, play around with the settings, Save, rinse and repeat to get the ACLs correctly, I can simply use ACL Manager.
