Administering page access

This post was written in support of the site insects.st-andrews.ac.uk which has the Role Scoper plugin installed.

The administrator wanted to be able to have users who could edit a single page on the site.  With Role Scoper installed the procedure for the Administrator is then:

1. ensure that the required indivdual(s) are registered as users for the site and on Synergy. Ask the Network Admin to do this.  Individuals may be given any access level, even subscriber (see WordPress roles summary)

2. In the site dashboard edit the required page

3. Scroll down to the ‘editors’ panel, click Users tab

4. type start of name of user into ‘filter’, user should list

5. check the first (unbracketed) checkbox beside the user name – this will make this user able to edit this page

6. click ‘update’ button

7. Pass notes for users on to the user (see below), adn/or sit with them and show them how to edit pages, or ask support to do this.
