    Hello
    I need help
    I have this new blog setup.

    I will have several people writing on the blog, but they can not be trusted.

    I need to set permissions so all articles/blog posts that they write can not be published and that their accounts only have limited access to sensitive settings.

    I want my members that write on the blog to log in and write. Then save it and not have the option to publish. Instead i want the text saved so my trusted group of control panel can review the content and publish it one by one.

    How do i do this?

    Please help!!

    You need to use the WordPress "User Roles" function. As the Administrator, you can set this when you create the users, or on their profile pages. In the WordPress settings, you can also set a default role for all new users.

    Based on your description, you want users to be set to the "Contributor" role - they can write posts but not publish them. See the full list of user roles here.
