JCK Manager: Plugin Permissions
The Plugin manager allows users permissions to be setup on a plugin by plugin level. This permits greater flexibility across the system which in turn means that one toolbar layout can be used by multiple user groups! If you have switched from using the JCE Editor you will probably be familiar with setting up user permissions on a layout level, which requires multiple layouts to be created to achieve the same results. However, as the JCK Editor is not limited in this way, user permissions are set on a plugin level following, Joomla’s architectural design. To learn more about these differences, please see a thread for more on this matter called ‘Layout for user groups’.
To do this navigate to the 'JCK Manager' and click on the 'Plugin Manager ' button. Next select the toolbar plugin you want to edit and click to edit.
- In Joomla 2.5 you are able to assign your ‘Toolbars’ and ‘User Group’ permissions in one screen.
- In Joomla 3x these parameters are found under the ‘Editor Options’ tab (as seen below).
