Permission Management

Exponent has a very robust permissions system which helps the administrator determine and control 'who' may do 'what' on the site.  This control can be regulated for an individual user or for groups of users.  Permission can be granted at the page, container (collection of modules on a page), or module level. Furthermore, assigned permissions cascade down to subordinate objects such as sub-pages, containers on the page, modules in the container, etc...

Optionally, there is a 'Simple Permissions' mode which may speed up sites with a huge number of users or customers. This setting is found in Website Configuration under the e-Commerce tab as 'Use Simple Permissions?.' When this setting is turned on, none of the user or group permissions will apply. Users are simply viewed as either an administrator or a basic user.
