When you use PHP Nuke to create your website, you can have as many admins as you want. You can also control what permissions these admins have. You have full control over the site admins on your website. If you want to create admins to help you with your site or parts of your site, this tutorial will help you. In this tutorial, I will show you how to create site admins and how to assign permissions to the site admins. You have to be logged into the main admin panel in order to create these site admins in PHP Nuke.
Opening the Site Admins Panel in PHP Nuke
Now, you will need to open your site admins panel. To do this, you will need to click the Edit Admins button found in the Administrator Menu. When the page loads, scroll down towards the bottom of the page and you will see the Add a New Administrator section. This is the section you will use to create your admins.
Creating Site Admins in PHP Nuke
Now you are ready to begin creating your site admins. In this section, you will need to fill in the required fields. You will also need to select the permissions you want to assign to your site admins. Let’s take a closer look at the fields on this page.
Name – In this field, you will need to enter the site admins’ real name. This field is required and cannot be changed after you click the Add Author button, so make sure you have this field correct before you add the admin to your site.
Nickname – Of course this is pretty self explanatory. Enter the desired nickname for your site admin in this field. This field is also required.
Email – Enter the site admins’ email address in this field. This field is required.
URL – If you have a URL for this admin to a personal site or something else that you would like to link the admin to, you can enter the URL in this field. This field is not required.
Language – The language is set to English by default. If you need to change it for some reason, drop this box down and select your option.
Permissions – Ok, this area is important. This is where you select what area admins can access and have control over. Choose your options carefully in this section. To allow an admin to access certain areas, you will need to click the box beside those areas to check them. Check as many as you want.
Super User – If you select this option, you will allow the admin access to your entire site. So, make sure you know the admin well before allowing them to be a super user, just my two cents..
Password – The last field is the password field. Enter a password for the site admin in this field. This field is required.
When you have filled in the above fields, you can click the Add Author button at the bottom of the page to create the new site admin. If you have more site admins to create, you can start over in this section and create more. After you click Add Author, the fields will be reset and blank again.
