Inside Joomla 1.6: Improved Access Control, Categories
Open-source content management systems, such as Joomla, have proven to be effective options for many Web sites and businesses and can be found running some of the largest and busiest sites on the Web. With strong content features, the open-source Joomla has been a popular choice, despite some traditional weaknesses, especially when it came to controlling user permissions on site and sorting content. But with the recently released Joomla 1.6, the open source content management system has gone a long way towards addressing these limitations. The new Joomla system now features much stronger user access control features that make it possible to define who can access and change content on a site and do so in a very fine grained and detailed manner. And Joomla 1.6 has ditched its old two-level site organization and added a new Categories system that allows for unlimited nested levels of content.
