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

To add editors or administrators 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:

To add a new user:

  1. Click on Users in the left-hand navigation.
  2. Click Add New.
  3. In the Add New User section, enter the Username (University of Michigan uniqname), and E-mail (uniqname@umich.edu).
  4. Select from the following with the Role drop-down menu:
    • Administrator – Has access to all the administration features within a single site.
    • Editor – Can publish and manage pages and posts, including those created by other users.
    • Author – Can publish and manage their own posts.
    • Contributor – Can write and manage their own pages, but cannot publish them.
    • Subscriber – Can only manage their site profile.
  5. Check the Add the user without sending them a confirmation email box in the Skip Confirmation Email section. Note that if you do send them a confirmation email, and they do not click the link that comes in that email, their account will deactivate within 30 days.
  6. Click Add New User.

To remove access for a user:

  1. Click on Users in the left-hand navigation.
  2. Click All Users.
  3. Hover your cursor over the uniqname of the person you want to remove, and click the Remove link.
