TinyPortal is delivered with a set of permission of its own. These permissions allow the administrator to set who has what permissions for the TinyPortal functions. The permissions are found with the standard SMF permissions. You can select who can post and moderate articles by membergroup, you can assign permissions to users to submit articles to be approved by admins before publication (see: Article submissions), allow access to the Shoutbox or Download Manager, and more....
The available permissions are briefly described below.
If you wish to review or update the TinyPortal permissions by membergroup on your site, simply go to: "Admin > Members > Permissions > General Permissions" and select the membergroup for which you want to change permissions.
