Contributors Can’t?

At tonight’s Board meeting, Gene said he’d written something and clicked the “Publish” button. I was surprised that nothing seems to have shown up when he did that. I noticed in checking, that his access level (Role) was set to “Contributor” so maybe that’s why nothing showed up? I’ve upgraded his Role to Author, so when he tries again maybe it will work this time. Here’s a list of the different Roles people can have on this website, and a brief description of each:

  • Contributor – Can only write, but can’t edit.
  • Author – Can write, and can edit their own stuff.
  • Editor – All of the above, plus can edit other people’s stuff.
  • Administrator – All that, plus can change people’s Role and change the site layout.
