Welcome

- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Jen Kramer. Welcome to Joomla! 1.7 Access Control Lists in Depth. Access Control Lists are often referred to as ACL. We'll configure ACL so three groups of users are delivered different content for viewing on the front end of the website. Next, we'll configure ACL so that someone can create and edit content within a specific category from the front end of the website. We'll also create a simplified backend for our client, so they see only the menu items that they need.

Finally, I'll cover some handy tips and tricks when working with ACL. Including styling the offline access page and working with ACL Manager, a third-party extension. So if you're ready, let's get started with Joomla! 1.7 Access Control Lists in Depth.
