Access Plus replaces the default access input view with a multiple checkbox interface for selecting as many access collections the user wishes.

It autologically resolves any conflicts - eg. setting something to public as well as another collection = public.

Access Spectrum:

Public > Logged in > Friends / Access Collections > Private

This plugin allows more than one Access Collection to be selected.  Any time a more inclusive option is selected in conjunction with a more restrictive option the more inclusive option takes precedence.


  • Allows assigning multiple access collections to a single entity
  • Works with multiple fields per page/form
  • No core modifications necessary
  • Admin can restore original access interface on an individual basis
    • This means if an admin turns off multi-access on the blog form then all users will see the default elgg access selection for the blogs page.  No other forms will be affected.  This makes the plugin granular on a per-form basis.
