There is a wide range of access control and content moderation features built into Super Simple Server. Almost every situation can be accommodated, from wide-open public wiki-style sites, to business-like sites with limited user input, to private personal sites with very limited access.
From lowest to highest:

- more privileged than trusted on some pages
- approve submitted edits, remove content, change user levels
- appoints and removes moderators
- can do anything on server / site

and you will be presented with options to adjust the level, or if you have operator access level, you will also be able to change the user's password.
Adjust User Levels At A Specific Path
User levels can be changed at a specific path and all it's descendants. Go into the page History, and look at the bottom for a link that says User Levels. From there it is possible to alter the level of a single user by name, or change the level of many users with a wildcard syntax that is explained at the top of the page.
Protecting A Specific Path
Specific pages can be protected from alteration or viewing by regular users. Go into the page History, and there will be a link at the bottom that says Protection Mode. Using this function you can lock certain pages, or make all edits pre-moderated, and also adjust the protection for all descendants of the page.
The /users Home Directories
By default, users do not have a directory under the
path unless it is manually requested. Go into
, and there will be a button that says Create User Files. This will create a default user home page at
, which has a feed reader, a forum, a chat room, and a place to post links to recent articles.
User home pages can be created automatically when a user meets a minimum access level by changing a setting in the system protection.txt
