I am new to Joomla and civiCRM and Joomla. In fact I got both on the same day a little over a week ago. I am trying to set it up so that I have two primary users of the civiCRM software, for tracking fundraising ,donors and such. But in order for them to see the civiCRM pages I have to make them Joomla Admins. How do I keep them from seeing Joomla Menu bar, and Joomla Admin pages, and still have them be able to see civiCRM?
I would add that this is our own LAMP server, and since this is a new install, I have installed Drupal as well and can go either diection that works best for this purpose. I am seeing other things I can do with these CMS that I am going to want to do for our education pages to take payments, register for classes and have a forum for the students, so whichever one works best for that is a factor as well.
