Levels of Users

There are 3 levels of user that can be assigned to a person using mycouncillor. These are called AreaEditor, Editor, Councillor and Contributor.

When ever a new site is created, a Councillor user is always created for that site.

A Contributor is somebody you allow to make postings to your site (e.g. your local IT officer, or a volunteer or helper you assign this task to. 

A contributor is assigned to a specific site and they can:

·write posts and pages

·edit posts and pages created by themselves

·edit their own profile

A Councillor is the site owner. 

Councillors are assigned to a specific site and they can do everything that a Contributor can do plus:
