User groups

In this section, you can add and edit new and existing user groups. When you add a new user group you set available categories and the rights for it.


Available sections: Sections where this group has the access.


Trusted sections: If you allow the user group to publish news without verification or to edit other users' news, then here you can specify trusted sections for the group. It will be forbidden to edit news for other groups. User can always add news in allowed sections, but if one of its sections will not be trusted, then the article won't be posted without prior moderation. Categories where it is not allowed to add news without moderation are highlighted in red when you add it.


Allow access to Administration Panel: This option allows the user to access the Administration Panel, but does not provide access to all its functions. Only access to add and edit news from Administration Panel is provided. Only Administrators have the access to all the functions.


Hide only full articles from inaccessible sections: If user is denied to access the section, you can choose whether to completely forbid the access or to forbid to view full articles.
