Article Type Access Levels

To set global access rights to some Article Type for example News or FAQ etc. go to Articles > Articles Settings and click on 'Access Levels' tab.

Access List column defines what users are allowed to visit Articles Listing pages.

Access Details this column is used to allow access on the Article Details pages.

Post this column does not carry any functon yet but in future it is planned to allow users to post their own articles.

Save these subscriptions settings for all subcategories if you tick this checkbox and click 'Update' or 'Apply', all categories within this Article Type will have the same Access Levels settings.

Article Category Access Levels

To set individual restrictions on the Article Category go to Articles > News click on the Edit next to the category name and there select Access Levels tab.

The settings fields here are the same as in Articles Settings but they spread only on the category and if you select Save these subscriptions settings for all subcategories to its subcategories as well.
