Permissions for categories and documents

How can I set permissions to categories (created by SuperUser) and documents (upload, download, edit) by registered users?

I have found the premission setting tab in the Docman settings but I cannot change anything there.

Thanks

Hello Markus,

For action permissions you have two choices. Either you set them in the DOCman global settings ("Change action permission" button) or you do it on selected categories.

Documents inherit permissions from their parent categories which inherit permissions from parent categories and ultimately from the DOCman settings. This allows you tune up the permissions to your liking. You pretty much set permissions as for any other Joomla extension by allowing or denying action permissions for each user group.

I'm not sure what permission setting tab you are referring to, could you please elaborate a bit more?

Thanks.
