How to Manage User Groups in b2evolution

Updated on Dec 10, 2015

If you have a large number of people working on your website, you can easily manage them by grouping certain users together. You can specify the actual rights for the entire group and then add users to it.

This technique will allow you to manage users in groups, instead of each user separately. This is a major time-saver and it is an important aspect of the website development as well.

To manage the user groups on your website, you need to access the Dashboard as administrator first. Click on the User tab at the top menu.
