I have several Categories and assigned permission to different user levels.

News => Finance Department
Blog => Sales Department
and several more

I created a content type "Submit Content" I did not assign any permission and assuming F2C listen to Joomla ACL. But it is not.

What is the best way to achieve this?

Patrick,

Thanks for your reply.

The conflict only occurs when you have your own permission control at content type level which discards Joomla category permissions. The best solution is listening to Joomla category permissions because you don't have a separate category manager for F2C.

If I have 100 different groups need to submit to 100 different categories, I have to create 100 content types now. But by having follow only Joomla category permission setting without the need for having permissions at content type level (for article create "yes";) I can only create one content type for any number of groups and categories.

This is another point to improve.

I have to abandon this extension and switch to difference component which respect native category permissions.

Form2Content follows Joomla ACL at Content Type level.

The combination of access limitation per content type AND category permissions is not supported. I don't know hope much work it is and what possible issues might arise if the Category Permissions are combined (respected) in the Content Type options. I do believe it's something worth looking into.

One of the issues we have is that we have an article manager, not just submission. If another user or admin moves the article what happens than? The original user has fewer permissions but can still edit the article .... but it is saved where not allowed... ACL conflict!

At the moment you could simply copy the form (content type), use the same templates and limit or set category selection per content type.

Hi,

We will build an option in the new version where you can choose if Joomla ACL will be applied to the category selection.

I ran into this conflict too. It would be best to have an option to choose "Follow Joomla Category ACL" or "Follow F2C ACL". Then it won't be conflict right?

Hi Kent,

Joomla ACL for category selection has been implemented for some time.
