Users Management

Users management provide you the ability to look at a list of your users and sort them in different ways. You can also add, edit and delete users.

Users

Normally, you create user accounts to grant access to exclusive parts of your site and allow business owners to post their listings.

To filter users by status, click the tabs as described below:

  • Inactive: Show inactive users
  • Banned: Show banned users
  • Delete: Show deleted users
  • By Role: Filter users by Role

You can also filter users alphabetically.

To create a new user you have to go through the following steps:

  • Log in to the GoClixy administration panel of your GoClixy web site, go to Settings->Users and select User Management. Please note that other accounts might not have the rights to add new users, depending on the level of access granted. This will open the create user form where you can enter the user information.

Users Create

Now, let's fill in the user details:

  • Email: Type user's email address. This would be the login email to be used to log in to the site.
  • Display Name: Type user's full name, like David Thomson
  • Username: This would be the login name that will be used by the user to log in to the site
  • Password: Use a password that contains lowercase letters together with capitals and numbers while having a minimum length of eight characters. To set password length, go to Settings->Settings->Security.
  • Password (again): Re-enter the password just to make sure there was no typo in the first
  • Language: This parameter sets the user panel's language
  • Timezone: Set the time zone of the user. This information will be displayed to the logged in user.
  • Role: Assign role to your user. This can be crucial for the security of your site so pay attention when setting this!

Once you are done with the information, click the Save User button.

By default both Email and Username can be used for login. To change the login method, go to Settings->Settings, select Security tab and modify it.

Activating/Deactivating a user

In order to activate/deactivate a user, log in to the GoClixy admin and choose Settings->Users->User Manager. Select the user by marking the checkbox to the left of the user's ID you would like to activate/deactivate and press the Activate/Deactivate button.

Banning a user

In order to ban an existing user - not allowing them to login to the site - log in to the GoClixy admin panel and open the User Manager from the Settings->Users. In the user list, select the corresponding user by marking the box to the immediate left of the ID column and hit the Ban button. Please note that this method will only disable the user account. You can always re-enable it.

Deleting a user

In order to delete a user, log in to the GoClixy admin and choose Settings->Users->User Manager. Select the checkbox to the left of the user's ID you would like to remove and press the Delete button. This method will not delete the user completely, you can always restore it. All the deleted users will be shown under Deleted Tab. To restore a user, click the Restore button under Deleted Tab.
