- From the Parameters > Access Level, select an access level.
- Select Registered to restrict the Joomla menu item Registered Users
- Select Special to restrict the Joomla menu item to all User Groups except Guest and Registered; in other words, to all Joomla Administrator Groups – Editor, Publisher, Manager, Administrator.
- Click Apply to save your changes and then test the access level you sent.
