The publishing tools come pre-installed in Joomla are very powerful and allows you to manage user permissions among other things. There is however a better and more flexible way to manage users. In this article I will give you a step-by-step guide on how to improve user article management in Joomla.

  1. Download the User Article Manager Component for Joomla 3.
    • The User Article Manager is a component which gives users the ability to create, edit and publish items from a list of articles displayed in the front end of your Joomla Site.
  2. Log into Joomla as an Administrator:joomla login
