Adding to an existing menu access level

Post by wilmo » Mon Mar 21, 2011 9:41 pm

I'm a newbie to this forum. I've looked through but can't find an exact match to my question. I'm using the Special access level for a menu item and it works halfway. I need to clamp that down. What I'm looking for is making the menu item accessible only for those that are in our Joomla LMS groups. Special isn't quite tight enough-all members of the LMS groups are authors but not exclusively. The LMS groups members are what we want to see the menu item-they must be registered and logged in first, then their menu item is visible. How do I make this menu item visible only to this component's groups members only (LMS)?

Thanks and apologies if I missed the answer to this one.

What you are looking for an ACL Component (Access Control Level).

I use a commercial version of community builder for this feature but it's rather pricey. Check out some of these for reviews and pricing (some are free and may be all you need). ... ss-control
