Setting Admin Permissions

Not all admins have equal rights: some can use all the functions in phplist, some can only use a few functions. These rights are called permissions, and they are set by SuperAdmins using the Permissions page.

General Description

Set permissions to view pages in the system:
All: admin has access to page without restrictions
View: admin can view content of pages, but not change anything.
	   This currently only works for the "user", "users" and "members" pages.
None: admin cannot see this page
Owner: admin can see this page, but only see the content of the lists they own

General presentation:
Type Page none all view owner
admin admins
admin admin
admin none
admin owner
clickstats statsmgt
clickstats mclicks
etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.

For definitions of All, View, None, and Owner see above.
For an example of permissions settings for a restricted admin, see bottom of page.

This refers to the type of page the page belongs to. It roughly corresponds to the divisions by "Functions" that are found in the phplist Main Page: System Functions, Configuration Functions, Lists and User Functions, Administrator Functions, Message Functions.

This refers to the different pages that belong to each type of page.
