As a site administrator, the first step in adapting the section editing workflow is to come up with answers to the following questions:
- Who needs to be limited by section editing restrictions?
- What content should they be allowed to edit?
For the sake of this tutorial, we will be walking through the process of setting up the section editing workflow for a ficticious site and user base.
The site we will be referring to is one you may already be familiar with if you have taken one of our training courses — www.bu.edu/training.
We place ourselves in the shoes of two different users:
- Alpha WordPress – Site Administrator for the training website
- Beta WordPress – A staff member of the undergraduate training office. Currently has the role of Lead Editor.
Note that all actions from here forward require a logged in user with a role of Site Administrator. Once you are logged in and the plugin has been activated for your site, you are ready to begin. If you have not yet requested the plugin, please do so now before proceeding with these instructions.
