Hi again,
is it possible to create Registered user, lets call him "content administrator",

so this user with limited permissions can manage page content only and pictures, create, edit, delete - but not to see all other admin sections
because if i create user administrator, he can see everything, but some people likes messing around without non advanced skills, better if they dont get tempted.
so, i see on navigation u can select which type of user he/she will be, but where to select options if i want to change user group limits, forbid all with crosses or thik...
i didnt find this information i documentation.
hope u did understand what i wanted to say.
cheers xxx

Hi,
I do this a lot with my clients. Create a new user group called something like "content" and then assign the user to this group.
Then in the edit pages section under the Navigation Tab you will see tick boxes for what the different groups can do with this page. If it is greyed out then the preferences are from a parent page. You can go through and select all the pages or parent pages under admin as to what you want them to do adn not to do.
This is also how you can add login functionality to the front end of your site too. For instance have a customer log in area.

Good Luck.

What Jai said is good.

It's important to note that anyone who has access to 'edit pages' is able to adjust the permissions of other pages (ie they can give themselves permission to see other pages), so keep in mind this isn't bulletproof.

It's designed to keep people from accidentally stumbling across admin pages where they are likely to get confused etc, not designed to be completely secure (not yet anyway).

i got confused :(
could u give me a clue with short instruction.

because i do something incorrect :(
i created new user group "web customer"
then.. i try to add reigths in Configuration>Table Data
i select page show, view, add , delete permissions, as well in article...

the problem is, when i log in as web customer, i have or all admin rights, or no rights at all.. i want him/her to login and to edit add or delete content, articles, contacts and similar....

I personally haven't used the tabledata permissions field before.

My suggestion above was in the Content>Edit Pages section. At the bottom of the navigation tab you will see a permissions table.

One thing that makes it easier is to remember that child pages inherite there permissions from parents. So for instance if you set Configuration page under admin to not show then all the child pages won't show either.

Bare in mind Harvey's comments above though. It is designed to stop some stubbling on something that they shouldn't rather than a full blown security system.
