- Not working with 2 number user groups (user group 10 have access for user group 1)
-All text of content in search module is access for all

Ease of use

not access for guest and userX groups together and not show for userY


This plug-in is easy to use and just does what it says: Restricting content in a dynamic way.

I prefer to use this plug-in based on Group restriction, which provides the most flexible solution for me.

We use Form2Content a lot. This plugin is a perfect solutions for some the problems we've encountered. It makes Form2Content even more flexible when using advanced ACL management.

Create 100% NATIVE Joomla articles using simple forms with front-end submission! Resize pictures with upload feature and set permission for new articles. All html is defined in article templates for consistent layout. Our goals is to make managing Joomla articles as easy as possible. Instead of using one html-editor (wysiwyg) you can define a simple form with fields in Form2Content. The field data like text, images, links etc. are than placed into an article template. Together this creates the normal Joomla article. You can even see it in the Joomla article manager! Front-end article submission (ACL based) Form2Content also allows users to submit Joomla articles in the front-end via the front-end article manager. Using the Joomla ACL you can set whether you see all articles or just your own or whether you can edit, create or delete articles. Article templating To create the 100% Joomla articles we 'paste' the form data into article templates. Together the data and template layout forms the Joomla article html. In the article template you can add html layout, framework css, Joomla content plugin syntax or even modules if you like. This way your user who submits the form needs no knowledge of this. And what's more, all your articles for each content type look the same! 3rd party Extensions compatible We are "Joomla compatible"! Since Form2Content creates Joomla articles we work with all extensions that use com_content but also with all Joomla content plugins. This way you decide which review extension, gallery plugin or slideshow you want to use. Main features of Form2Content - F2C creates 100% NATIVE JOOMLA ARTICLES (com_content) - Front-end article manager (ACL based) - Article submission without HTML knowledge (forms) - Article templating (include conditions) - 3rd party plugin & module compatible - YOU decide which gallery, slideshow, review or commenting system etc. you want to use. Form2Content LITE is our free GPL version of Form2Content PRO. Please find a comparison chart of functions on the homepage. Other F2C extensions include XML Export, Search component & module and KML export.

This is a Form2Content CCK specific extension. The Article Edit Plugin is a content plugin which adds the ability to create a custom EDIT BUTTON in your Joomla articles. The link re-directs directly to the Form2Content submission form. After save or cancel the user is again re-directed back to the Joomla article.
