Add/Edit/Modify ACL and Groups from Frontend

Post by ballenkicks » Thu Apr 04, 2013 5:12 pm

Does anyone know of a way to allow a user (moderator of a group) to edit ACL/usergroups for another user that may belong to their group from the front end? Key word being front end. I am looking to build an all in one solution for the moderator from the front end and this is one of the last steps.

Thank you!

PS I am running 2.5.8

You can not do this via Joomla core. You would have to have a 3rd party plugin for the forum, blog or whatever you are trying to accomplish.

Start here: http://api.joomla.org/

Joomla 2.5 uses the 11.4 platform.

What are you exactly trying to do?
A forum?

Originally I set to build a site where I could allow Trainers to have their own page for video instruction in which people could purchase access to. From there I realized that this would be a great tool for them to have individually for their own business and be able to set up multiple ACLs for content and special purchases as well.

While coming up with this concept I also realized that most businesses would want the ability to control all of this out of a CRM. So I set out to integrate both together into one solution. I realize that I could just build subdomains for each business and give them access to the back end of joomla and tie in a service from another web based CRM. However I would prefer to have my own look and feel to their operating side, and manage all of the sites from one installation. Therefore I would have easy access for troubleshooting and customer support.

I believe I can handle most of the CRM stuff with Community Builder, but I am stuck on two things,
1. The ability to allow the trainer to set ACL from their own dashboard (front end).
2. The ability for them to set up their own merchandise and subscriptions from their tools (front end).

I understand this may be a task better served with a custom build from the ground up, however I am trying to get it started first, then to have the money to pay for a better structure! Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!
