It's possible, on Joomla 3.2, create a group with permission for:

  • insert/edit/delete articles
  • insert/edit/delete users

and not permissions for manage extensions, configuration, templates..?


  • Yes, you can add your own group or use one of the existing ones and set permissions accordingly. See here. Each core component has an ACL Manager so you need to change it for the Article Manager and Extension Manager
