(Before we get into editing settings for site members, understanding the differences between membership roles is vital. Roles determine the level of access a user is capable of. Here are the different roles:)
  • Administrators - have full access and can add and approve users.
  • Publishers - can publish content but they cannot perform administrative tasks, such as changing site settings.
  • Writers - can perform basic tasks, such as writing content, but they cannot publish content.
