One of the major pluses to having a CMS-based website is the ability to give your staff the ability to easily add and edit the content of the site. In the old days of web design you'd have to contact your IT or web designer to make changes. This is not true with the website we have installed for you. All you have to do is add the staff member or employee to your user list, decide what authority you want them to have, and they can start posting immediately. This is a quick tutorial on how to add a new user to your site.

Click on the small arrow to start the video.

Steps:

Step 1: Log in to the administration area, or back-end of your website.

Step 2: Locate the User Menu icon on the left hand side. You will be taken to the User Manager which shows a list of the current users.

Step 3: Click on the icon on the right that looks like a +.

Step 4: Type in the new user's name, email address, and desired username.

Step 5: You have two options in the password area. You can put in a password or you can leave it blank and one will be created for the person. If you leave it blank an email will be sent notifying the new user that they now have access and will tell them how to log in.

Step 6: Decide what authority you want to give them. The access levels available are:

  • Front End Only:
    • Registered: Can log in, but cannot do much else.
    • Author: Can write articles, add events, and photos but they won't be published.
    • Pubisher: Can write, add photos, and publish. (I usually set up assistants with this option.
  • Back End: There is more control in the back end and usually only website owners and IT employees need access to this area. However these areas are:
    • Manager: Can publish, unpublish and delete
    • Administrator: Can do all of the above and add users, software, etc.
    • Super Administrator: Can do all the above and edit tools used on the site.

Step 7: Once you have filled in those settings go back to the top of the page where you will see the "Save" button. Clicking on it will save your new member, return you to the User Manager, and send out an email notification as described in Step 5.

Creative Developer , Web Designer and All Around Geek


April has such a passion for technical innovation and graphic design, we swear she'd be designing web pages even if she didn't get paid. Back in the mid-80s, she convinced us to switch our entire production department to personal computers when the Macintosh was just a gleam in Steve Job's eye. An award-winning journalist who ventured into the self-publishing field, she was enlisted by several print and publishing groups to train graphic designers on the value of the personal computer. She was present for what became known as the desktop publishing revolution. Always eager to learn, she traded her technical knowledge with the talents of graphic designers and became a sought-after graphic designer. Still not satisfied, April caught the wave of web design launching websites back when a telephone line was required to get on the internet. Since then, she's been keeping us on the fast-track to internet technologies. Her guiding theme: "If a customer needs it, I can figure out how to do it, and how to make it easily accessible for the client."
