* articles (specific articles)
* part of articles and templates
and much more
You can make as many usergroups as you need and assign users to them. There are 2 predefined usergroups which are very userfull:
* 'not logged in'
* 'logged in but not assigned to any usergroup'
Users can be assigned to multiple groups.
You can configure for each restriction-type (components, articles etc.) to reverse the access, so any box ticked becomes a restriction instead of an access-right.

I tried this extension, and is amazing, the base idea is to personalize each access to my website, thanks for the extension!!
The support is quick and prepared, five stars !!
I suggest to everyone to look also at the pro version, have fun!
Thanks to Carsten, after getting my act together with the config difficulty I had, my free FUA, is now working fine on my site.
End result: site works correctly, and clients can login, click a "registered-only" menu button, see their own unique page.
Nice product. Solved the login-access issue.
Really a must-have to manage your Joomla sites
I wrote a new plugin to manage access to module in articles. It will be soon published by the original author (because it's his code)
Thanks to Carsten !
Paying for an extension is many times a pig in a poke but I am telling you in this case the pig is worth every dime.
I'll give it 3* with the assumption that the pro version (paid for) does all of the above.
Creator of Frontend-User-Access helped me out and provided me with a fix (kind of within a day).
I bought the pro version. Needed the category hide/display feature. Works great!
(hidden categorys / section will still be displayed within site search.. so I excluded those categorys with the search plugin hack)
For the time being, that is great because it might convince him at some point to upgrade to a higher license. However, there will be a point when there is too much content on the site and then I will need the pro version of this wonderful plugin, so that I can hide menus per user group. As you can create as many user groups as you like, you can have many different access levels which do not depend on the traditional member groups like authors, editors etc...
What I find really brilliant is that you do not need to create a new user list, you have access to all the existing registered users and you can assign them to a custom user group. Piece of cake!
I bought the pro-version and realized not only is this a must have extension but the developer behind it are extremely competent and more than willing to help you.
Looking forward to more extensions from this developer, I will purchase them all.
Otherwise good job.
please read this FAQ:
This is mis-leading, no where on the site does it say this until you have already installed and start working on locking your stuff down.
So what does the free version offer exactly?
