No. JUGA restricts completely independently of the internal Joomla ACL system. (To add the groups and restrictions within the core group system of Joomla would require hacking the Joomla core code, which we do not do).
YES, JUGA can hide menu items on the Admin-Side. This requires the use of the mod_menujuga and mod_quickiconsjuga (if you also want to restrict the admin desktop icons) ADMIN-SIDE modules (which also require the JUGA Check Rights plugin to be installed). You can also hide the complete menu from displaying, click here to see how it's done.
YES, but only with the use of our free CONTENT SUBMIT component.
YES, but with this method only: http://www.dioscouri.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=4&id=2224 (special thanks to Renato for implementing this fix to com_wrapper, something we at Dioscouri believe should be part of the core)
The reason this fix is necessary is that other than the `Itemid` value, com_wrapper URLs are all identical. JUGA doesn't distinguish between Site Items based on their `Itemid`, so if the only variance between two menu item links is their Itemid, then JUGA will treat them as the same link.
In other words, you won't be able to get JUGA to distinguish between com_wrapper items, and therefore won't be able to assign them to different groups (unless you're using J! 1.5 and implement Renato's fix).
- The content articles are "n/a" in the include column because they are part of the "Content Component". The *com_content component* CAN be excluded/included from JUGA's restrictions, but for individual content items, you must assign them to a JUGA group.
- create the appropriate JUGA Groups for your Admins,
- configure your Admin-Side Site Items so they are assigned to the appropriate JUGA Groups and
- assign users to the relevant JUGA Groups.
Yes - HOWEVER - if your theme doesn't follow standard Joomla! core theme structures (i.e. it uses something other than the mod_mainmenu to display the menus) then there may be some changes needed (to your theme or to the mod_mainmenujuga module code). We provide those modifications for some popular theme makers (RocketTheme, Yoo, etc.); however, we can't keep current with all tempalte developers. If we don't have an existing solution for your theme, then we can give you some tips on how to make those changes or we can make the changes for you (for a small fee). Please check first to see if your theme/template requires changes if you are planning to restrict menus.
Unfortuantely, JUGA only restricts the entire page, not specific items within the page. So JUGA is not able to prevent restricted articles from being displayed in a blog-style layout. [However, if a user clicks on the 'read more' link, the user will be restricted from accessing the full article page.]
