The Editor User Role in WordPress1:27 with Zac Gordon
In this video we will go over the Editor role, which is able to add and edit content but not access settings.
We're going to look now at the editor role for WordPress, which is someone who
can manage and publish their own pages and posts as well as content from other users.
So I'm going to come into my dashboard now and I'm now logged in as the site editor,
and you can see we have much fewer options here.
We have access to posts, and I can see that this was written by the site author.
And I'm gonna go ahead and add a new one.
And now when I come into my post,
we could see the site editor had one, the site admin had one.
I could log into the admin one.
Add content, update it etc.
However when I come into users, I only have access to my own user, and
I don't really have access to too many tools, especially the settings, and
changing plugins, and the theme, and other things like that.
So this editor role is perfect for someone who just needs to be managing content, and
a lot of times, an editor for a site, or even the quote-unquote, owner for
a site should really be logging in just with the editor role if all they're going
to do is edit content and they don't need to edit any major settings.
So now that we've look at the editor role,
we'll take a look in the next video at the author role.
