Blog Roles and permissions

When you want to allow other people to add content to a blog you have setup on http://myblog.arts.ac.uk you can add them to your blog and give them certain view/edit rights.

There are several roles you can choose from, and as I am often being asked what each means I thought I might engage in some pre-emptive knowledge-sharing and reproduce them below:

• Administrator – Somebody who has access to all the administration features.
• Editor – Somebody who can publish posts, manage posts as well as manage other people’s posts, etc.
• Author – Somebody who can publish and manage their own posts.
• Contributor – Somebody who can write and manage their posts but not publish posts.
• Subscriber – Somebody who can read comments/comment/receive news letters, etc.
