The Frontend Users module is used to manage users of a page. The module lists all frontend users who are registered. These can be easily filtered and searched, for example, if you need to find certain users in the list.

The tool also allows you to create new users in the back end or deactivate or delete existing accounts. Editing frontend users is self-explanatory. Nevertheless, we will show you here in detail what you need to keep in mind. For test purposes, you can log in with a specific user in the frontend via the module. Furthermore, the data can be exported as CSV files.

When you are on any page in the backend and select the Frontend Users module, you will most likely get the view as shown in the screenshot. To edit frontend users, you must go to a page that contains these records. In fact, it is possible to create users on any page. However, it is advisable to create all frontend users in one or only a few places to keep an overview.

Overview

In the Frontend Users module, users that are created within one page are listed. The profiles can be filtered and searched by user group.

For each individual user record, there are the same editing options available. The most important ones are always visible - others can be expanded by clicking on the three dots. Icons are visible to edit, to enable/disable and to delete a record. Further options are information (click to open a window with an overview of the user: shown in the screenshot), show/undo change history, add record and last but not least: Show user in frontend.

Tab General

As soon as you enter the editing mode of a user record, the General tab appears. There you can see the username (email address), password (encrypted), available and selected user groups and the date of the user's last login.

You create and manage user groups in the list module. You add a new user group by clicking an icon in the list to create a new record. The lowest category, System Records, contains the record Website Usergroup. Select this if you want to create a new user group.

Ideally, the frontend users and user groups should be located in one place in the page tree.

Tab Personal Data

The fields of this tab are self-explanatory. All personal data such as name, phone number or user's address can be found here. Missing information can be added at any time.

Tab Additional Information

In this tab you can upload additional images and add email addresses. Also select the user's country, if necessary and known.

Tab Options

When operating several websites/domains via one system, you can lock the user to a specific domain by entering it here. With Typoscript you can make further adjustments in the field TSconfig.
