Briefly: in Joomla! 1.5 Authors were able to create and edit their own articles (in any category); Editors could, in addition, edit articles created by other users; and, finally, Publishers were the only users who could publish or unpublish articles. From version 1.6, article categories can grant a mixture of ‘Edit Own’, ‘Edit’ or ‘Edit State’ permissions to the defined user groups. A user may have ‘Edit Own’ permissions for some categories and full ‘Edit’ permissions for others. ‘Edit State’ can be distributed to yet a third combination of user groups and categories. The full range is decided by the site administrator when setting up categories and user groups; readers should refer to the Joomla! documentation for the full details.
The UAM aims, for any given user, to collect the editable articles and display them in an accesible manner.
The only thing easier than using UAM is to give it 5 stars.
Very simple, direct, easy to install, fast to setup and does the job very well.
If I could point something that could be polished is the layout, which could be done using divs instead of tables, to acomodate better with responsive templates, aside this tiny little detail, the component is brilliant.
Thanks for offering such a great tool for free.
I have a website where 50+ users should write from the frontend. There is no way to superwise all of them, but I don't want to give them "Publisher" right (the are now Authors). Is there a way to make auto publishing possible?
It would be great in backend setting if it was manageable all fields setting on "Publishing" and "Metadati" (display on/off in frontend).
I would agree with other commenters that it would be really useful to be able to delete an article entirely from the manager. Currently the most that can be done is put it into trash. However, this is a wish list item - the extension is already good enough in my opinion for an 'Excellent' rating.
I would like however to see if the developer can put a way for any user on the frontend to submit articles and then a captcha and admin approval. I want any user being able to submit articles. Great product and hope you keep coding!
Only I'm afraid not work for Joomla 3.5.x in the future. But they say that already works for Joomla 3.0'm calmer.
Hi and thanks for the review. A 'native' Joomla 3 version is in development. This will not rely on legacy classes and so should survive into 3.5 and beyond
A big thanks to him and I'd have to say this is essential to have if you have multiple people needing to submit articles to your site.
UAM v0.17 and later should address this issue. Users with 'Author' or 'Editor' rights (as defined in a default Joomla 2.5 installation will be restricted to the given category when creating articles. 'Publisher' and superusers can still change category if desired
