    I have invited others as authors, but they cannot edit their pages. Their roles display as authors under “Users” but author functions either are not working, or are eluding them.
    Here Is an email I received:
    Hi Professor,

    I’m not sure if it’s a personal error, but there doesn’t seem to be an “edit” button on any of my story pages, nor is there one on my “Author Bio” page. Everything else you’ve explained is there, including the share tabs, but the option to edit is not. Is there something I am doing wrong?

    Can you help?

    Thanks,

    Jerry

    The blog I need help with is remoir2014.wordpress.com.

    Hi Jerry,

    “Author” user role can only edit their own posts, so this might be the problem. See the explanation here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/user-roles/#author

    Users will need to at least be an “Editor” user role to be able to edit all posts. Hope this helps!
