Welcome to the Fruit Shop
We sell fruits from around the world. Please use our website to learn more about our business. We hope you will come to our shop and buy some fruit.
This mini site will show you how you might want to set up a site for a business, in this example one selling fruit. It shows how to use access controls to manage your site content. If you were building a real site, you might want to extend it with e-commerce, a catalog, mailing lists or other enhancements, many of which are available through the Joomla! Extensions Directory.
To understand this site you will probably want to make one user with group set to customer and one with group set to grower. By logging in with different privileges you can see how access control works.
We search the whole countryside for the best fruit growers.
You can let each supplier have a page that he or she can edit. To see this in action you will need to create a user who is in the suppliers group.
Create one page in the growers category for that user and make that supplier the author of the page. That user will be able to edit his or her page.
This illustrates the use of the Edit Own permission.
Customers and suppliers can post their favorite recipes for fruit here.
A good idea is to promote the use of metadata keywords to make finding other recipes for the same fruit easier.
To see this in action, create a user assigned to the customer group and a user assigned to the suppliers group. These users will be able to create their own recipe pages and edit those pages. They will not be able to edit other users' pages.
