How to create two different types of registered users?

by Saibbyweb   Last Updated August 18, 2016 08:04 AM

I have two sub user groups of Registered user group on my Joomla site.

1. Present Students and 2. Ex-Students

I want some modules to be shown to the present students only but I can only set access to the parent Registered group which makes it visible for both sub-groups. I googled about it, but couldn't find any proper solution. I read somewhere I need to play with the Special access level couldn't figure out how.

What would be the most efficient way to achieve this?

Help would be appreciated.

I believe you should be able to do this through Joomla's Access Levels.

In the backend, go to:

  • Users (top menu) >> Access Levels >> New
  • Create a different access level for each sub-usergroup.

Once done, go back to your module setting and you should be able to set the access level to one that you created.
