Manage Users, their Status & Permissions

joomla support cheshire manchester merseyside north west uk

The USERS > MANAGE screen of your website control panel is where you can change your login details OR user credentials.

Example, your username, password and email address.

If you are responsible for the website of a business or organisation, then the USERS > MANAGE screen enables you to manage your team of website contributors.

Through it you can designate their STATUS and PERMISSIONS.


The Users > Manage Screen

The Users > Manage screen enables you to:

  1. create New Users,
  2. edit the details of existing Users (example: change username or password),
  3. assign Users to User Groups,
  4. create Access Levels to better be able to control what different Users and User Groups can see when they visit your website.

In addition, you can turn ON or OFF User Registration.

How to change Username & Password

You can do so after either signing into the control panel or front end.

Harden your website's security

Turn OFF sending passwords to new users:

  • Send Password = NO.

This is the default setting in a WYNCHCO website design (see image).

Password will still be sent by email when YOU create a NEW USER in the Users screen of your website control panel.

For this reason you should take great CARE when creating new Manager OR Administrator OR Super User Accounts (all of whom can sign into your website control panel).
