UChicago Sites - Configuration - Adding Users

This article explains how site owners can add users to UChicago Sites.

This section is intended for site owners only. Content editors and contributors do not have access to these functions.

This section describes some advanced customization you can apply to your UChicago Site. Because site owners have access to more advanced editing options, it's important to be cautious when making these changes as you have the potential to make more significant site-wide changes.

  • Content contributor - can add, edit, and publish their own content, but cannot edit content created by anyone else.
  • Content editor - can add, edit, publish, and delete any content.
