Questions tagged [acl]

ACL specifies which users or system processes are granted access to objects, as well as what operations are allowed to be performed on given objects. In the case of Joomla there are two separate aspects to its Access Control List which site administrators can control: One system controls what things on the site users can view. The other controls what things users can do (what actions a user can take).
