When you set up an Edublogs blog with multiple users you have the ability to assign and control what other users can do in the blog depending on the tasks you want each user to be responsible for. You need to consider carefully what role you assign other users since Administrators are able to remove other users, including you, and editors can delete content.
The five roles a user can be assigned in decreasing level of responsibility are:
- Administrator – can do everything including complete power over posts, pages, plugins, comments, choice of themes, imports, settings, assign user roles and are even able to delete the blog.
- Editor – is able to publish posts/pages, manage posts/pages, upload files, moderate comments as well as manage other people’s posts/pages.
- Author – can upload files plus write and publish own posts.
- Contributor – can write own posts/pages but can’t publish them.
- Subscriber – can read comments and write comments.
The diagram below summaries the responsibilities of each role:
Please note when using Edublogs Blog & User Creator feature:
- Users are automatically added as Administrators.
- To create multiple student blogs you add yourself as co-administrator by changing selection to Yes in the Add Admin field.
To be able to access Edublogs Blog & User Creator Feature you need to be an Edublogs supporter.
