Introduction

With Frontend-User-Access you can set frontend access restrictions to:

  • Get this

  • components
  • 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.

Frontend-User-Access is NOT A HACK.

Hello is Gavin from Australia,



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!


This component was exactly the functionality our client was looking for in their project. Simple to use, simple to setup! I suggest buying the pro version...


AWESOME


Posted on 30 September 2012

I don't normally write a review, but I had to because this plugin is AWESOME. Did exactly what I wanted. I'm buying the pro version!


FUA has made our site much more powerful and useful than before. We have granular control over every user's access throughout the site. Front End User Access and Admin User Access are indispensable!


Needed a simple way to allow a handful of "registered" clients to login and see their private info.



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.


Great

I use Frontend-User-Access since a few days and I recommand it very warmly. I'm realy not a Joomla / computer expert but it's easy to install and to use. The french version helped me and for the rest I got a great support (thanks Carsten). Don't hesitat. Use it !


Great solution !

Very usefull to manage access level to any content, module, component ...

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 !


Although FUA can control user access to just about anything on your front end the most groovy part is the two default groups "logged in" and "logged out". I looked everywhere and as far as I know this the only extension that can control access based on these two groups. Still you could look around for something free but take it from me the pro version is worth the $$ in time and head banging saved. He supports many menu modules including his own. I had an issue with my exmenus not working with FUA loaded and Carsten had a fix pronto.



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.


As someone else mentioned earlier, the free version is very limited and not very useful. The functionality of restricting specific articles can be achieved easily without this add-on. For category/section/menu/modules functionality you will need the pro version.



I'll give it 3* with the assumption that the pro version (paid for) does all of the above.


Great product

Excellent product, simple and straight forward. Will probably upgrade to the pro version soon. One light hiccup, quickly solved by author.

This administrator module displays the CORRECT number of logged in users. Frontend and backend. Like Joomla's module 'user status' (modstatus), but then better. You can set the number of minutes of the users last activity. So it does not count the ghost-users of uncleared sessions like 'user status' (modstatus). This module should be published to the administrator module position 'status'.
