I want to build a simple site with Joomla 4. The webpage should only handle these few things:

  1. For guests (not logged in users):

    Display an article with some text and the 'login mask' inside the article. There should be a link to 'register new user'.

  2. For logged in users:

    Display an article with some text and a 'Log Out' button.

That's all.

Lodder pointed me to the possibility of adding modules into articles:

  • If you're using the same article, you can simply put the Login module inside said article.

One alternative is to use two modules with different permissions.

For example, one for visitors (public) and one for registered users (all other groups).

Module Permissions

A solution is to use the native ACL built on Joomla 4 without anything else.


  • Create an article and choose access to "Registered" users.
  • Split th earticle with using "Read more" tag after few lines.
  • On the "Options" article tab, scroll down and choose "Yes" from "Unauthorised Links".
  • Create a menu item with "Category Blog" type.
  • On the "Options" menu item tab, choose "Use Article Settings" from "Unauthorised Links".

That's all.

The guest user will see the intro title and the intro text and at the end the "Register to read more".
