The default user roles for the BU WordPress CMS are Site Admin and Lead Editor (previously known as Web Admin and Web Editor respectively). As soon as the section editing plugin is activated, a new role becomes available — Section Editor. Before a user can be added to a section editing group, they must first have the role of Section Editor.
To change user roles, click on the Users menu item and:
- Find the row for the user that you would like to switch roles for in the table and click the checkbox to the left of their username.
- Once checked, open the Change role to… menu and select Section Editor
- Click the Change button.
