Gridbox Developer Tools Permissions

Developer Tools Permissions

Do you know the situation when a client changed site or theme settings and destroy the closely thought-out website design? Oh, it's very frustrating! In the Gridbox 2.8.9, we added access control for developer tools to prevent such incidents in the future. Now you can make Gridbox developer tools available for specific Joomla user groups.

Users without access to action Access Developer Tools will be denied access to the next tools:

  • Site Settings 
  • Theme Settings
  • Tools
  • Page Blocks

You will find Gridbox permissions in the admin panel. To determine the permissions of user groups mouseover on icon "Option" and click "Permissions".

  • Pages
  • Add to Menu

Control access with improved Gridbox permissions and protect your site from unwelcome changes.​


The new feature and fixes will prevent unnecessary changes and keep the site design clear and original. Developer Tools Permissions is the first part of Gridbox permission improvements. We plan to release new permission features that will allow you to control access from single pages to Gridbox Apps in a Joomla manner. Further - it is more!
