    Hi!
    Is there a way to test a user role? I mean check how an editor or publisher, sees the frontend and the admin?
    Best regards

    But this way you need to use multiple fake email addresses.

    In all honesty, it is recommended to have 2 users for yourself. the admin user, and the normal user.

    The admin user is used for admin stuff, otherwise the other user is used.

    During development, you can use your admin account to switch the levels of the other user. You only need 1 additional user to test every level. Its a pain, but how often do you need to do it?
