I have just created a new user from my administrator back-end. I have assigned this user to groups like author and publisher. But this user can't seem to login to the admin screen to create articles.

I don't want to give this user high privileges. Am I missing something? How can my user do this?

BTW, I don't have a login page in the front-end.

By default log in to the Joomla back-end is disabled for Registered, Author, Editor and Publisher groups (it's inherited from a Public group for which this action is not defined, and therefore is prohibited).

Select Allowed for Admin Login action in Global Configuration -> Permission Settings to the desired group.
