ACL Manager renamed to PWT ACL

aclmanager pwtacl

On August 8th, 2011 I launched ACL Manager, never expecting it would turn out to be an award-winning Joomla-extension with thousands of Joomla sites using it. Now, over 6 years later it is time for the next big step: releasing three new Joomla extensions!

As some of you probably know I'm also running the Joomla-agency Perfect Web Team in The Netherlands. We build great Joomla sites for our clients with a team of 12 Joomla-experts, many with custom Joomla-extensions. We noticed that we started to use some of these extensions in many projects, so last year we decided to move forward and make them available to the general public.

During the Joomla World Conference 2017 in Rome, we launched our new Joomla-extensions: PWT SEO, PWT Image and PWT Sitemap. Together with this launch ACL Manager got renamed to PWT ACL and the website moved to as the new home for all of our extensions. To access your account, subscriptions and downloads you can now log in to this website with your account.

And... ACL Manager PWT ACL version 3 is getting really close, so you expect a new release soon!
