    I added a member to my blog exept its telling them that they own the blog :/ .they also have mostly the same options as I do.I put them down as a contributer so they shouldnt be able to do anything besides post on articles,right?

    what do i do to make them only be able to post?

    I think it’s important to consider exactly what roles you want to give users.
    This will help you with that http://faq.wordpress.com/2006/05/12/what-are-the-different-roles/

    It would be easier to help you if you could clearly state what the ideal outcome you have in mind is. Contributor – They can edit their posts but cannot publish. Is this what you want?

    Best bet would be to submit this issue via feedback so that a staff member that’s a look at the situation. This is a back end issue that we’re not going to be able to solve for you here in the forums.

    Um, TT. The poster want the user in question to be a contributor and they’re not able to do so.

    Oh DUH I think I get it now. You think something went wrong and the OP added a person intended to be only a Contributor as an Administrator by mistake.
    But can’t the OP who is an Administrator change the other Administrator’s role?
    -> Users – Remove checked users (and then add the same person back in again but this time with the correct role) Set the Role of checked users to: (drop down choices – Contributor) I’m asking because I mucked up on one of my blogs and remedied it that way.

    ill try to explain what I want: I want the person I added to my blog to be able to post comments on the articles I write,but I dont want them to be able to do anything else.by “anything else” I mean I dont want them to have access to most of the dashboard options :P .I put them down as a contributer,I even double checked it to make sure I didnt screw something up (it sure wouldnt be the first time -_-‘ ).

    To comment on the blog, they don’t have to be a contributor or anything at all unless you’ve got some privacy settings over and above the norm. Anyone can comment as long as they have an email address. You can manipulate those settings under Discussion — >Privacy on your dashboard.

    I have it set to where they have to be logged in as a member to post a coment.the only reason I do that is because if I ever get some problem people i can block them.ofcoarse I understand that they could just as easily get a new acount.
