How to access

You can access the User Manager by clicking on the User Manager icon in the Control Panel, or by clicking on 'User Manager' in the 'Site' menu on the Back-end of your Joomla! installation.

In this screen you have the ability to look at your users' list and sort them in different ways. You can also edit existing users and create new users.

Column Headers

In the table with all users from your Joomla! site displayed, you will see different columns. Here you can read what they mean and what is displayed in that column.


  • Checkbox. Check this box to select one or more items. To select all items, check the box in the column heading. After one or more boxes are checked, click a toolbar button to take an action on the selected item or items. Many toolbar actions, such as Publish and Unpublish, can work with multiple items. Others, such as Edit, only work on one item at a time. If multiple items are checked and you press Edit, the first item will be opened for editing.
  • Name. The (full) name of the user.
  • Username. The username of the user is displayed here. When a user wants to log in, he has to fill in this username.
  • Logged in. In this column, you can see whether the user is logged in or not. A green check is shown when the person is currently logged in. The column is left blank when the user is logged out.
  • Enabled. In this column you can see whether the user is enabled or disabled. A green check is shown when the user is enabled, a red 'X' sign when the user is disabled. A disabled user did not activate their account by clicking on the link in the e-mail sent after registration. A disabled user could also be a user who was blocked by an Administrator or a Super Administrator. Click on the icon to toggle between enabled and disabled.
  • Group. The user's Group. The following Groups are available:
    • Registered User: Normal visitors who register at the site. Can view Menu Items that have Access Level of Registered. Cannot edit or submit articles.
    • Author: Can submit new articles for approval in the front end only. A Publisher or higher must approve. Cannot edit existing articles.
    • Editor: Can submit new articles or edit existing articles from the front end only. A Publisher or higher must approve.
    • Publisher: Can submit, edit, or publish articles from the front end only.
    • Manager, Administrator and Super Administrator: Can do all of the above plus can log into the back end with increasing rights.
  • E-Mail. The e-mail address from the user is displayed here.
  • Last Visit Date. Here you can see the date on which the user last logged in.
  • ID. The ID number. This is a unique identification number for this item assigned automatically by Joomla!. It is used to identify the item internally, for example in internal links. You can not change this number.

At the top right you will see the toolbar:
