When an organization needs to have an employee have their website editing access limited to certain pages or post categories, they need the Website Author role added to their website. For comparison, our standard service feature allows you to have multiple Website Editors who can edit and create on any page or post. Another layer of restriction is necessary to offer Website Authors.
Below is a listing of how the Website Author operates:
Can create and edit THEIR OWN folder names but not delete them. Cannot see any other files or folders.
Can upload, edit, delete files in their own folders.
Can use any images, in any folder in the library.
Can put images/files in any folder.
Can only edit/delete images and document file they have uploaded.
Can be assigned published content to edit.
Can create new “pending” content, but not publish it. Website Admin must publish it.
Once content is published they can edit it without approval, as long as they remain the assigned “author”.
Content can only belong to a single author at a time.
Two different Website Authors can not manage the same content.
Website Editors or Website Admin can manage any/all Website Author content.
You can have multiple website authors, though each is considered an add on feature. This means if you have 4 website editors and two of them are restricted to be website authors, there is a $120/year fee ($60/year for each website author.) The $60/year covers training the website author on their section of the website and future customer support.
