Authors - can their posts be moderated? (3 posts)

    Hello there

    I'm 6 months into my blog and things are going really well.

    I'd now like to investigate the possibility of adding additional authors, and have a number of contacts that could help with this task.

    But I'd also like to give the OK to any posts by these authors before their posts go live... is this something I can easily do?

    Thanks

    Paul

    Create a new user, just to play with. In the admin area, Users tab, Authors and Users sub-tab, give it a role of either contributor, author or editor. Then, log in with this "fake" user and see what its administration area looks like. You will see what they are allowed to do.
    If you want to moderate, they cannot be higher than contributors.

    Actually, using the Role Manager plugin they can be anything - and you can define each role as you wish.
    First, read about the Roles: http://codex.wordpress.org/Roles_and_Capabilities
    At the bottom in the Resources you'll find the link for the plugin.
