Question Permission issue: "Warning You cannot access the private section of this site"

7 years 3 months ago - 7 years 2 months ago #1 by Cronie
Hello.

I am new to Joomla and Kunena and could use some help. I set up a forum on my website and it appears to work fine for me (super user) but no one else is able to log into the forum.

Registered users get the message: "Warning You cannot access the private section of this site."

I am not very clear on how the permissions work, so maybe someone can tell me where I went wrong? I would like everyone to be able to view the website and forum, registered users to be able to post, and only myself to be able to access any site configs

Thank you for your time.

Here is my report:

Hi Cronie,

When you create a category in the back end you can set permission for it. So you log-in to the back end of your site and try to check permission of all categories has been created.

Regards

- Please provide your site url if it has been lived.
- Please share tip if it worked fine with you.
- Don't be shy about using the "Thanks" button below if you found my comment helpful :)

I guess I am not too smart, I really don't understand the permission system with joomla/kunena. If someone fills out the form to become a user on the forum, are they a guest, a user or registered?

Do you know of a tutorial with a nice SIMPLE explanation of what the different ranks can do?

Thank you for your time

I can't find this anywhere.

If someone registers on my forum (they enter their name and email and get a verification email) then what group are they in? All the people that have registered on my forum are being called "users" .... so what is registered?

Your new accounts are joined to the Joomla group that you have defined in the options in the User Manager.

(1) Go to Joomla User Manager » Options

(2) Look at Component » New User Registration Group (see screensopt below):



All the people that have registered on my forum are being called "users" .... so what is registered?

"Users" are the accounts that people have. "Registered" is the name of a "user group" (technically, it is the name of a Joomla ACL group).

When you users create an account at your site - when the "register" at your site - they automatically are able to use your forum (unless you have otherwise prevented them form using your forum). This question is often asked. It is answered in the topic User registration and/or general login issues .
