Once you have created custom user roles for your website, you need to grant them correct privileges. You can choose which admin screens users will have access to and what they can do on these screens.
Your selection of permissions for the user role will enable or disable different features and screens users will see in the admin.
Here are some examples of useful permissions to consider for your content managers:
- Delete and edit posts and pages created by other users
- Upload files
- Manage other users
- Create and edit post types and taxonomies
- Edit custom lists of posts (Views)
For example, your content managers probably need to edit all posts in the site. However, you might not want them to edit custom lists of posts (Views) that you designed for the site.
- Go to the Toolset → Access Control page and click the Custom Roles tab.
- Click the Change permissions link under the custom role you created previously.
- In the pop-up that appears, select the permissions you want to grant to this user role.
