When you register a new WordPress user, you must assign him a role or profile.
WordPress Roles are designed to manage what users can or cannot do in your site. When assigning roles to users, you can manage and grant access to write and moderate posts, create pages, define links, create categories, moderate comments, manage plugins, deal with themes, and control users.
Briefly, the roles you can assign to users are as follows:
- Administrator has access to every administration tasks.
- Editor can publish and manage all the posts.
- Author has the right to publish and manage her own posts.
- Contributor can write and manage her own posts, but not publish them.
- Subscriber can read and comment.
Following the same approach, Nelio Content allows users access to different functionalities depending on the role they have in WordPress:
- Administrator has full access to the administration tasks and manage the subscription and the social profiles.
- Editor can publish and manage all the posts, as well as assign tasks and publish and manage social messages. In addition to it, an Editor has access to the editorial calendar.
- Author can publish and manage his own posts, as well as create comments, tasks, and social messages. In addition to it, an Author has access to the editorial calendar, but cannot edit posts from others. However, he has access to the social messages from posts owned by others.
- Contributor has access to the editorial calendar but can only edit his own contents. A Contributor can create tasks, references, and comments, but only on his own posts. In addition to it, he can create social messages but only schedule them with respect to the publication date of the post.
- Subscriber does not have access to Nelio Content.
