Custom User Access Levels

You can create your own custom access levels and add members to these new access groups once they are created.

The new training video hasn’t been created yet for this feature.

  • If you haven't already done so, Log in to your website and select the Dashboard link at the bottom of the page. You will be taken to the Site Content tab. Select the User Admin tab then select User Access Groups from the left navigation bar.
  • Listed in the User access groups index will be the three default access groups; Site Admin, Publisher, and Member. By selecting the name of each access group you can see what access each group has.
  • The access they have will be displayed in green.
  • To create a new access group select the Add User Group button.
  • Enter a Name for your new access group then select the checkboxes for each category of access you want for your new group.
  • When finished select Save. The new access group will be displayed on the index page showing each access category you selected in green.
  • Select the User Profiles folder in the left navigation bar.
  • Select a user account by selecting the Edit link.
  • Scroll to the bottom of the page and select the checkbox next to the new Custom Access Group. You will need to select both the round button for the default access level as well as a checkbox for the custom level. Members will need to have a default access level plus the new custom level.
  • The most common custom access level will be default set to member with a custom level added giving a member more rights than just member but not as much as a publisher. The second would be default access set to publisher and a custom level where a user doesn't need full site admin rights but just a few.
  • Select Save.

A Member who is logged in to the site can see content published on the site that is set to their Member access level.

There is a checklist for Publishers access under User Access Groups. A Publisher can post to Content Pages (but not widgets), Main Menu, File Library, Events, etc.
