How do I add or remove access for others to edit my site?

To add more editors to your website, log in to access your site and make edits. Permissions can only be applied to the entire website, and are not page-specific. *Note: Try these instructions using either the Google Chrome Browser or the Firefox browser:

To add a new user:

  3. In the Add New User section, enter the Username (University of Michigan uniqname), and E-mail (uniqname@umich.edu email address).
  4. Select from the following with the Role drop-down menu:
    • Administrator – somebody who has access to all the administration features within a single site.
    • Editor – somebody who can publish and manage pages and posts, including those created by other users.
