Permissions and Modules - El Forum - 02-02-2014

I'm putting together a dashboard for a backend to a CMS project made with Codeigniter. There is some navigation in a sidebar and I"m trying to figure out what I need to know making "modules". I have two types of users. Administrators and basic users. They share the same sidebar navigation. Admins can see all links in the navigation and basic users can only see some. I was trying to look at a few different CMS's to see how they do it and really like how PyroCMS does it with putting together their navigation. However, I"m trying to find out what really tells me what I should makes a module. I know it has its own controllers, models, views and etc. I'm trying to find out with research what I need to know to really know what should I make into a module. Are their questions I should I should be asking myself that will be able to tell me what has the possibility of being a module and what isn't.

CMS Admin_Controller Line 80

I'm also trying to really think about permissions for those as well.
