How to disable menu link access for certain access groups?

Post by darb » Fri Jan 27, 2017 10:11 am

Hi

I have a question Joomla improvement on how to disable a menu link for access to certain user groups?

This would be great if it could work like Advanced Module Manager so you could include/exclude access to certain access user groups. Then it would be a cleaner menu for Joomla user and better Joomla CUX on the front end.

One example,
You have a register menu on your site and that should be visible only for public users when its necessary. As soon they have register and later are logged in that menu link "Register to the site" should not be visible any more bcs they dont need it after they are logged in as register user group etc

Or how do you solve that problem? I dont want to use a login module in this case with a blank page menu.. :geek:
Success in the long run Its not about the code its about the people and community that's make it!

In this case, you can set the Access Level of the corresponding object (either menu item or module) to Guest.

The objects will be shown when the user is not logged in. Once they are logged in they will see the object.

Review of the document https://docs.joomla.org/J3.x:Access_Con ... nd_Modules would be of help.
