Hi, is it possible to restrict the ability to create items to some joomla usergroups?

I see the possibility to create K2 usergroups, but they don't seem to be related to joomla ACL

Also, I would like to display in frontend only items where the author is in a specific joomla usergroup

K2 User Groups are separate because they are easier to setup (and also allow K2 to function the same from Joomla 1.5 up to 3.x).

You can either create one or more K2 User Groups that map to the same Joomla User Group (e.g. Registered) or create a separate K2 Group per Joomla User Group.

In any case, it's up to you how you set things up. K2 User Groups are only for frontend editing out-of-the-box, in other words, you can't control "view" rights by K2 User Group. This is were "regular" Joomla User Groups come in. So configure your editing setup between K2 & Joomla User Groups and finally assign certain Joomla User Groups to K2 Categories for viewing.

Thankyou Fotis, but how do I map K2 groups to Joomla usergroups?

Also, do you have any advice to make items hideden or unpublished based on the user group?

You map Joomla users to existing K2 User Groups. You do that "en masse" in the K2 Users list.

As for your 2nd question, adjust the K2 User Group's permissions to disallow publishing K2 items (=new) but allow editing items that are already published (=already moderated). The latter is of course optional.

Sorry you mean that it can only be done manually? I have a community with over 4000 registered users, and new registering every day, it would be impossible to add them manually to the K2 group

There's an option to auto-assign new users to a pre-selected K2 User Group. You would just have to set "Enable K2 user profile" to yes so that K2 can extend the signup form with additional user details (e.g. gender, profile pic etc.).

For existing users you can just batch-move them easily in the K2 Users list in the backend.
