Changing User Permissions
We are going to start where we left off on how to invite new users with one of each type of user.
We have the Original Owner, an Author, an Editor, and an Administrator. Now, say we want to change some of the user roles around, here is how we do that:
Click on the User. I am going to click on the Author user.
We are now on that user's page. Scroll down a little bit until you see "Role".
- Click on the dropdown list and select the new role you want this user to have and hit save. I am going to change the role to Administrator.
Go back to the users page and you will see that the user has changed roles. For me, the user named Author has become an administrator.
And that is it for changing permissions! You can make any user any role at any time. Check out our next post on how to change who is the Owner user!
