Possible to restrict which admins can install extensions ?

Postby spinningrust » Wed Sep 13, 2017 7:53 am

Hi,

I'm currently having to deal with a horrible mess.

Its a Joomla site that has literally pages of random modules installed by some clueless person who was given Admin rights and just went about installing whatever random modules they found on Google. Half of these modules are obsolete and no longer maintained, the other half are so poorly coded they need to be got rid of ASAP.

So that left me wondering. Going forward, is it possible to create "Junior admin" profile of some sort that allows access to a subset of admin functionality but prevents people installing new rubbish modules and extensions ?

The short answer to your question is yes. You can do this by setting up ACL groups and restrict hat the members of those groups can access, including the ability to not install rubbish extensions.
