< All Topics

We know it can be a daunting task setting up a new club website and the ongoing maintenance that is required to keep content fresh. That is why you may wish to share webmaster access – avoid giving out your own account login details for security reasons, instead add another user and set their privileges as an administrator.

Adding another Admin User

  1. Log in to your website’s admin panel.
  2. From the admin menu, click on Users.
  3. Select Website Admin Roles from the subsequent dropdown menu.
  4. Click the Add New button.
  5. Scroll down to where it says Add New User.
  6. Enter a username, the email address of the user you wish to add, select their role (see below breakdown of roles) and leave the Skip Confirmation Email option unticked.
  7. Finally click the Add New User button.

Breakdown of Admin Roles

Subscriber – the user can see content that is posted and can leave a comment, but not post any content to the site.

Player & Staff – these are legacy roles and do not allow the user to post or edit content to the site.

Contributor – can post news articles but these must then be submitted for approval to an administrator to click the publish button, by default

Author & Editor – can post content without the content needing to be reviewed

Administrator – full administrative access, able to access and update any information, account details and post/edit content
