Please note: The headers must be lowercase.
Understanding User Roles
The WordPress publishing system allows for multiple user accounts and administrative privileges. Your setup already includes a user account for the adviser.
- Administrator: Somebody who has access to all the administration features, including comment moderation, design options, widgets, menus, user accounts, galleries, and polls. *This is the only user role that has the power to design the website.*
- Editor: Somebody who can publish all articles, manage articles, as well as manage other people’s articles, and moderate comments.
- Author: Somebody who can publish and manage their own articles only.
- Contributor: Somebody who can write and manage their own articles but cannot publish articles. A contributor can only submit their own articles for review. An Administrator or Editor can then publish those articles.
- Subscriber: Essentially does not have access to the site in any meaningful way. A Subscriber is somebody who can read approved comments on stories, make comments on stories, etc.
