    I have multiple users on my blog. What’s the difference between ‘Author’, ‘Editor’ and ‘Contributor’? Do they have different levels of access and if so .. what do they include?

    Here’s a link for you to read. Please note that there is a search function in these forums that would have found you the answer. It’s covered in the FAQ:)

    Hope this helps,

    Not a problem. I need to do a FAQ on how to search for stuff around here and different methods to use. That may help…

    Good luck,

    Thanks dr.mike.when i go to the user options, there is author option, but how do i set the levels–0,1,2, etc.
    there is no provision for that.
    Can user members post images?
    Thanks

    Um, not sure what you’re looking at. When I view DashBoard -> Users -> Authors & Users -> Add User From Community, I see a drop down menu with Subscriber, Contributer, Author, etc. Not sure where you’re getting the numbers from.

    I know everyone assigned Contributer and above can write a post. I see no reason why they wouldn’t be able to upload a picture. (Never come up before actually)

    Good luck,
