Operating CiviCRM 4.5.6 on current Joomla 3.5.1.
I have set up three groups which should have different access levels to view, edit and add contacts. Have configured them to be in group special as suggested elsewhere and allowed them access to Access Administration Interface in global permissions.
When I try to add allow to the add contacts group this automatically resets to "Not Allowed" after I press save..
It went OK with the other privileges but not with add contacts.
Dumbfounded. Can somebody help? P.S. where are these privileges stored in Joomla anyway? Checked all the tables and found nothing which represented the privileges in any way..
