Site Access

This Joomla plugin allows you to specify the pages of components that are visible to guests versus those pages of the component that require the user to login first.

  • Get this

This is useful if you have a component - such as myblog, and you want certain blog pages to be viewable by guests, however, you want other blog pages to be viewable only by logged-in users.

Many components only allow you to specify if all or none of the pages are viewable by guests vs registered users. In many cases, you want to pick and choose which pages are public vs private. You can do this with Component Content Control.

Version 1.61 - For use on Joomla 1.6, 1.7 and 2.5 websites only.

Use V1.52 on Joomla 1.5 websites.

NOW you can control multiple components and easily set up your components that you want to be mostly private or mostly public.

For example, you might use MyBlog and have a blog that you want to be mostly private, but have some blog pages that you want to be public. Then just enter "com_myblog" in the "Mostly Private Components" parameter, and enter in the Public Tags (url fragments) of the blog pages that you want to be public.

At the same time, you might have another component that you want to be mostly public, with private access required for a few pages. Then just enter that component name (eg: com_poll, etc) in the "Mostly Public Components" parameter, and enter in the Private Tags (url fragments) of the pages that you want to be private.

V1.52a fixes an "empty delimiter" warning sometimes seen.

Simple and working

Posted on 11 April 2012

It's impressively easy to use and works just like it should.

However, it is a bit too simple maybe. I am really looking forward to the moment the multi-component version will arrive! Untill that time I will be using this plugin with pleasure.

Very nice ACL through this.

I do not wish just to stop at 'Public' or 'Registered view'. Since joomla can have other categories UNDER 'Registered', I want few things to be available for specific sub-category of 'registered' lot. e.g. I have 'Registered-New', 'Registered-Approved' members. New entry creation button of component I am using have no ACL to prevent creation of new entry for New members. I want to achieve it through this.

excellent plugin

By far one of the best components i had to install on my joomla website. Now i can restrict access to certain categories. Well done for this tremendous job you have done.

I've been using joomla for +10 years now, and this is the first comment I left for any extension here. This is a perfect solution for Virtuemart to completely show some categories and hide anothers, so now I can have complete control on what display/show to registered/unregistered users, done in literaly 2 minutes, thank you!

A pretty good extension

Just perfect

I've been developing with Joomla for more than 6 years. This is the first time EVER I've given a 5 star rating.

This tiny little plugin, does precisely as it says, with such little effort. From what I can tell, it's not limited to any list of components either. Simply type in the name of your component, and it does the rest.

Brilliant, and thank you

Exactly to the point!

This is the kind of extensions I love. I needed to restrict one of two books I have with FlippingBook component. This plugin did the job with ease. Thanks so much!

Takes hardly a minute to install and have it running and does what it says without any excessive setup - as simple as writing in the component's name!

I love when things work just out-of-the box and without too much tweaking afterward!

Great job developer(s)!

My Big THumbsup! for this amazing extension.. It works perfectly as describes.

looking for multiple components adaptability



Thank you very much, works perfectly, and above all meets what I wanted, I hope and is a project to continue.

This little plugin allows you to manage failed login attempts. The latest version can deter hackers by adding a programmable time delay after a failed login attempt. Upon a failed login attempt, you can redirect to a page in your Joomla site, redirect to a completely different site, or not redirect at all (default). Optionally, you can have it display a custom message such as "Login Failed - please try again". V1.66: For Joomla 1.6, 1.7, 2.5 & 3.x websites. V1.54: For Joomla 1.5 websites.

Now you can control who registers on your site. This plugin and module allows you to control or restrict user registration to only those people who have received a "passphrase". This is useful for clubs, organizations, churches, schools, etc that want to limit registration to current and new members who have received the passphrase via email, newsletter, etc. The correct passphrase must be entered before a user can submit their registration. The passphrase should consist of letters and numbers only - eg: "dog123ez" . Do not use punctuation or other symbols. Multiple-word passphrases are OK - eg: "We live to help". You can also use it to keep out the RegBots - by using the passphrase module to ask a simple question such as "How many weeks are in one year", etc. To avoid problems, all letters are converted to lowercase, so it won't matter if the user submits uppercase or lowercase letters in their passphrase. Spaces are ignored. Thank you to Franz Kössinger who created the "CB Passphrase" plugin for Community Builder. Also thanks to Ajay Lulia who created "JSecure Authentication", and Alaattin Kahramanlar (ADJR plugin) - some of the same ideas are used in this plugin.
