How to create new Admin User accounts

Here’s how to create new Admin User accounts (Admins, Publishers, or Authors) for your website.

NOTE: Only Admins can add, delete or edit user accounts as described below.


Open the Admin Users control panel

Click Admin in the Admin Toolbar, then click the Admin Users tab to open the Admin Users control panel.

Click Add User to begin creating a new user account

The Add User dialog will prompt you to enter the new user’s name, assign them a username, and enter their email address. This is where you will also assign the user the appropriate role of Admin, Publisher, or Author.

If you have eCatholic Payments enabled on your website, you’ll notice some additional Payments security settings in this dialog as well. Once you’ve entered all the information, click Save.

Specify which pages the user has permission to edit

NOTE: This step is for new Publisher & Author user accounts only.
If you’re creating a new Publisher or Author user account, next you’ll be prompted to assign the user-specific pages that you’d like them to have permission to edit. (You won’t see this option for new Admin accounts since all Admins are automatically granted permission to edit all pages of your website.)

Click the  green arrows to assign permission for specific pages or groups of pages. Toggle the  blue drop-down arrows to see subpages. And click the  red X to remove access for specific pages.

Additionally, under the Advanced  tab, you'll also have the option to grant Publishers and Authors access to the following:
