How do you let users create /publish articles?

12 years 7 months ago #34894 by randyhunt
Sorry to ask such a question. But I can't seeme to grasp how to or where to find the area to let users create an article.

I am trying to make a site for others to share their stories for others to see. I want them to register first, and CB seems perfect!
Is 'Articles' what I want, or should I enable 'Blog', but then I'll need info on how to do that!
Are these extensions that I am supposed to be downloading and installing, or are they already built into CB?



Thanks,
randy

Articles are controlled by Joomla itself. To allow users to submit articles, first give them author status.

I did make sure they have Author permissions.
When I log in to the users area and see the tabs. All I see under the articles tab is: "This user has no published articles."

So what am I missing?

Thanks,

that means the user has either not submitted any articles, or he did but the admin has not published them.

I am trying to enable users to be able to publish an article.
I am trying to find the information to do that.

User has author permissions.
When user logs in, where would the link be for the user to create/publish an article?

If the link is not there, where is the configuration area to allow users to publish?

I can't find it anywhere.
I purchased the subscription and read the 126 page document, and I still don't know!

Can someone tell me about letting registered users create articles?

frustrated in spirit :(
