In any subscription system we want to restrict the access of resources on the basis of subscribed plan. If a user has Premium Plan than we provide more privileges than the one who has Basic Plan. More privilege is directly related to more access. So in such scenario PayPlan Joomla-User-Type App is very useful.

We always say that PayPlans is a versatile subscription system. This also holds valid since different components which provide the restriction on the basis of User Group is easily integrated by Joomla-User-Type App. You can change the user group of the user according to the subscription status.

Third Party Component which we are talking about is Access Manager, JDownloads, Simple File Manager, DOCman and Dropfiles.

    • Editing of content (extending Joomla! ACL)
