eCatholic Admin User roles explained

Admin User Role #1: Author

Author is the user role with the lowest level of access to your website.
The most important thing to remember about authors is that they cannot publish any changes they make on your website. Instead, authors are assigned a specific page (or pages) of the website on which they can add content. Any changes an author makes are automatically saved, then submitted for review in the notification center by a Publisher or Admin.
  • Add Content - Yes, to assigned pages only

  • Publish Content - Yes, on assigned pages only
  • Add New Pages - Yes, can add subpages to assigned pages

Admin User Role #3: Admin

Admin is the role with the highest level of access to your website. Admins can add content on all pages and access all items in the Admin Toolbar.

They can add and delete other admin users, and can approve or deny edits made by authors.

  • Publish Content - Yes, on all pages
