     100To create custom permissions, for example to be used in a custom workflow, enable the optional [trac:ExtraPermissionsProvider tracopt.perm.config_perm_provider.ExtraPermissionsProvider] component in the "Plugins" admin panel, and add the desired permissions to the `[extra-permissions]` section in your [wiki:TracIni#extra-permissions-section trac.ini]. For more information, please refer to the documentation of the component in the admin panel.

    93102== Granting Privileges == 
     
    115124== Permission Groups == 
    116125 
    117 There are two built-in groups, "authenticated" and "anonymous".[[BR]] 
    118 Any user who has not logged in is automatically in the "anonymous" group.[[BR]] 
    119 Any user who has logged in is also in the "authenticated" group.[[BR]] 
    120 The "authenticated" group inherits permissions from the "anonymous" group.[[BR]] 
    121 eg. if the "anonymous" group has permission WIKI_MODIFY, it's not necessary to add the WIKI_MODIFY permisison to the "authenticated" group as well. 
     126There are two built-in groups, "authenticated" and "anonymous". 
     127Any user who has not logged in is automatically in the "anonymous" group. 
     128Any user who has logged in is also in the "authenticated" group. 
     129The "authenticated" group inherits permissions from the "anonymous" group. 
     130For example, if the "anonymous" group has permission WIKI_MODIFY,  
     131it is not necessary to add the WIKI_MODIFY permission to the "authenticated" group as well. 
    122132 
    123133Custom groups may be defined that inherit permissions from the two built-in groups.
