[resolved] Administrator Access (13 posts)

    Hello--I am having someone do some work on my site; I also see that there are a couple of user levels in the "add user" category--Can a user other than an admin do work within my site and not have access to Shopping Cart settings, etc. that I don't want them to see/have access to? Or, is there a permission level in php that you can assign so eliminate any risk? Thanks,
    Kevin

    It depends upon what work you want this other person to carry out on your site. Try reviewing Roles_and_Capabilities

    You can install this plugin User Role Editor and this will give you control over what each role can do if you are admin.

    Thanks for the info.
    I'm still a little ignorant of the ins/outs of WP--So I'm using a theme called Themeforest/Furniture Store, and the info I want to protect is in the store setup. Will different areas/populate if I install the User Role Editor plugin?

    OK-Installed, only choices are to set rules for author, editor, contributor, or subscriber. Should I set this person to be an author vs. an admin?

    You are the admin so you have all privileges It all up to you or you can create one

    Maybe I am not explaining well enough (or don't understand WP enough).

    Per my previous post, it doesn't appear that I can add an admin as a user.
    There are only four (4) categories of users that are available.

    Should I set this person as an author?
