TYPO3 v8 has reached its end-of-life March 31st, 2020 and is not maintained by the community anymore. Looking for a stable version? Use the version switch on the top left.

There is no further ELTS support. It is recommended that you upgrade your project and use a supported version of TYPO3.

User Management

We saw earlier that TYPO3 CMS enforces a strict separation of so-called "frontend" and "backend". The same is true for users: there are "frontend users", who are web site visitors, and "backend users", who are editors and administrators.

Working with frontend users is discussed in the Editors Guide. We will now look at backend users and how to set up groups and permissions.
