I am using Joomla 3.4.3 and I am trying to give permissions to a specific group. I want this group to Create/Edit/Delete articles in a specific category.

I have created a group under Registered users. Then in System -> Global Configuration -> Permissions I am giving the permission of Admin Login, Access Administration Interface, etc. When I login as a user from this group in the upper menu I can only see the SP Page Builder option.

How can I enable the Content menu in order to have access (Create/Edit/Delete) to the Categories and Articles?
I don't want to give Manager permissions, because I want to give the less the permission I can.

    Please update to 3.4.8 before anything. You're current version is prone to attackers. Recent updates fix this issue

From the backend go to Global Configuration Click Articles in the left hand sidebar Go to the permissions tab and edit the permissions for the group you created Save

If you want to deny access to all of the other components (banners, weblinks, etc) go to those components and kill the access for the group you created.
