Luckily, I happened to stumble across a banner for ACL Manager that caught my eye. What I found when I clicked that banner was nothing short of amazing. This is how ACL should have been done!!! The screens are VERY easy to understand and manage. Simply pick the object you want to see the permissions for and everything is displayed in one clean and intuitive display. Managing the permissions for a site is not a breeze for every the lest technical of our clients. This has earn a spot in our default installation package.
Great work, this is a first class and well don extension. Definitely should be included in the core.
I wanted one user to be able to edit and publish just one article on my site, and the ACL Manager allowed me to quickly see how this could be done.
Its hard to imagine how the overview of the whole access control process can be made visually any clearer. I was also impressed how smoothly and cleanly the features integrated with Joomla.
Sander's level support is exellent. Response was rapid, and I found Sander very willing and generous with his time.
However I suspect that this is a tool that will become a "must have" for anyone checking the security of J1.7 sites of any complexity as it clearly lays out who can do what with site resources(either group by group, or user by user) in a way that is not possible with the built-in admin. tools.
Anyone else out there wanting to create a non-trivial Joomla! site, relying on ACLs for view and management control, don't think twice. ACL Manager is THE tool for this job and the price is very cheap, considering the huge time savings you get.
Well done, Sander!
Full disclosure: I personally know Sander and I was given a free copy of the extension as soon as it went live. However, everything I've written above is my honest opinion after having used the component on two sites (one test site and one real site I'm building).
