Control (formerly supported and maintained at jxtended.com) is a tool that allows you to manipulate the Access Control tables provided with Joomla and is used by other extensions on this site to provide extended access control capabilities.
- Builds on the existing phpGACL API used within Joomla!
- Adds the extra tables required to use the full phpGACL API
- Add your own User Groups (more than just Registered, Author, Editor, etc)
- Add your own Access Levels (more than Public, Registered, Special, etc)
- Create your own Permissions
- Create your own Rules by binding permissions to User Groups and Access Levels
Please note that this extension does not add access control to existing extensions (like com_content) by itself.
Your installed extensions must be designed to work with Control in order to achieve finer access granularity.
- JXtended Libraries plugin (an extended developer framework for Joomla). Download a copy of JXtended Libraries.
- Joomla 1.5.7+
- PHP 5.2+
All extensions are automatically installed from the one package.
- The Control administrator component (com_control).
