Blog Roles

While setting up blogs in our pilot WordPress project blogs.mcgill.ca, I’ve been asked what the difference is between the various user roles in WordPress. From the WordPress Codex, here is a brief summary:

  • Administrator – Somebody who has access to all the administration features
  • Editor – Somebody who can publish posts, manage posts as well as manage other people’s posts, etc.
  • Author – Somebody who can publish and manage their own posts
  • Contributor – Somebody who can write and manage their posts but not publish posts
  • Subscriber – Somebody who can read comments/comment/receive news letters, etc.

For more information, read about Roles and Capabilities on the WordPress Codex.

Neither the content of these blogs, nor the links to other web sites, are screened, approved, reviewed or endorsed by McGill University. The text and other material on these blogs are the opinion of the specific author and are not statements of advice, opinion, or information of McGill.
