Show Assignments

This tab gives you the ability to disable any assignment options for the template style edit screen.

We advise you to switch off the assignments you don't plan to use, in order to keep the available assignment options in the template style edit screens to only the ones you need, improving clarity and page load speed.

User Actions Log

Log User Actions Select to store User Actions. These actions will be visible in the User Actions Log module.
Events To Log Select the actions to include in the User Actions Log.


Advanced Template Manager uses the core Template Manager permission rules.

The Joomla permission settings control access to the different actions for each user group. For more information on how these permissions work, see the Joomla docs: Access Control List Tutorial: Component Options & Permissions
