Error: 403 You are not authorised to view that resource

If you have enabled frontend hotspot submission you might encounter a situation where you get "403 You are not authorised to view that resource". Basically the message means that your user account belongs to an user group that has not enough privileges to create a hotspot. To fix this -> login into the Joomla backend -> go to components -> Hotspots. Then on the dashboard find the "options" button and under the permissions tab grant the create permission to the group that should be able to create hotspots. If you want anonymous users to be able to create hotspots - you most probably need to assign the create permission to your public group.
