After your Joomla has been installed, you could enjoy its functionality. However, simple at first sight questions, which can be time-consuming for inexperienced user, appear during the further work. This article illuminates two simple points – “How to add or delete Joomla user?” and “How to edit locked article?” Having examined the simple instructions, you can feel more confident while working with your site.
How to add/delete user in Joomla
One of the remarkable features of Joomla administrative panel is the ability to add, delete and edit users. Additionally, you can manage user rights, grouping them accordingly.
So, how to add or delete a user?
For these actions you need:
- to authorise in administrative panel;
- in Menu, having clicked on “Site” button”, open the “Users” entry;
- then in opened “User manager”, click on “New”;
- now “User” pop-up should be opened – click on “Add”;
- then it’s simple – enter personal data of new user.
The following items belong to personal data:
- “Login”, necessary for authorisation on the site
- “E-mail” address
- “Group” – here it is necessary to indicate, what group the system should assign the user to
- “User blocking”. If you don’t want to block current user, select “no”
When the whole data is entered, the user should be saved.
For deleting a user it is necessary to log-in, select in Menu, having clicked on “Site” button, “Users” entry. Then in opened “User manager” window, select necessary user and click on “Delete” button.
How to edit locked article?
Joomla beginners often run into difficulties with editing articles in administrative panel. Such difficulties appear due to the presence of “lock icon” on the articles. Nevertheless, it is quite normal and the problem is easy to handle.
To clarify the process, it should be mentioned that the site management system is focused on multi-user access, which means – while you are editing the content it will be locked, so that other users cannot make changes simultaneously. However, the blocking of the material will be automatically removed when the content is saved, or after clicking on the button “Close/Cancel” in edit information screen. Nevertheless, users often having opened the document and worked with it, forget to save it or click on necessary button. In this case the content will remain locked. To unlock it you should log-in in administrative panel and select “Tools” – “Block reset”, as a result the content will be unlocked. It should be noted that the locking mechanism of documents applies to other elements of Joomla program, including modules, menu items and some components (e.g. banners).
