Admin Panel

The Admin Panel is accessible to users who have the User Role Admin, Admin Settings or Admin Members. The Admin Panel offers a range of options that can help you manage the Social Network system.

The Global Settings page allows you to change the layout of the site, including name, logo and many other options.

User Groups User Groups allow you to group users together. If you need to keep your members organised, you can assign them into groups.

IP Blocking IP Blocking prevents users from logging in using a specific IP.

Page Categories allow you to create categories that users can assign to their page.

Social Settings are used for setting up logging in with other Social Media networks, including Facebook, Google and Twitter.

The Admin panel also allows you to manage all your Members. You can edit/delete/add members. You can see all their information by clicking on Edit User. You can change their password, email address and also their User Role.

The software also has a powerful User Role system. It allows you to completely control the permissions users have on your site. You can create custom roles with different permissions and assign them to individual users. This section describes all the User Roles and what permissions they give. You can view what each role does by hovering over the Role in the Admin Panel.
