What is a role?

A role is a set of permissions that can be applied to individual users. Users can belong to more than one role.

Assignable roles

Two roles may be assigned to users:

  • Editor - May create, edit, and delete content on the website.
  • Webmaster - May do everything an editor can, plus administer the website configuration, change the appearance of the website, and create and manage user accounts.
    Give this role to trusted users only.

See the article Changing the permissions of a user account for steps to add or remove a role from a user account.
