In our previous Joomla 2.5 ACL tutorial, we showed you how to create a new user group. This user group was called Teachers, and will allow us to give certain core permissions to our Teachers in our fictional school website.

Now that we have a new user group, we need to assign a user to the Teacher user group.

To assign a Joomla 2.5 user to a specfic user group:

  1. Log into your Joomla Dashboard
  2. In the top menu, hover over Users and click User Manager
  3. In the list of users, click the username of the user you want to assign to a different group. In our example, we are assigning our Ivana Teach user to the teachers user group
    choose-your-user
  4. Under Assigned User Groups, select the user groups you would like the user assigned to (they can be assigned to more than one user group). In our example, we placed a check next to Teachers
    click-check-box-next-to-teachers-user-group
  5. Click Save & Close in the top right menu.

    As you can see from the screenshot below, our Ivana Teach is now assigned to our Teachers user group:
    ivana-teach-is-now-in-the-teachers-user-group

    Now that you have assigned a user to your new User Group, you'll next want to test writing an article on the front end with your new user.
