WordPress Words: WordPress Roles – Editor

WordPress Support

Example: WordPress has six pre-defined roles: Super Admin, Administrator, Editor, Author, Contributor, and Subscriber. Each role is allowed to perform a set of tasks called Capabilities. An Editor will have the third highest set of capabilities that includes the ability to: delete, edit, manage, publish, read, and upload.

About the Word

An Editor can create, edit, publish, and delete any post or page (not just their own), as well as moderate comments and manage categories, tags, and links. It is the Site Administrators job to monitor and add roles accordingly.  Be mindful of the roles that you give users on your blog. For example, if you add a user as an Editor and then they delete all the posts on your blog, they have not “hacked” your site or done anything they were not permitted to do. For this reason, it is recommend to only adding users whom you trust to your site.

When you have decided it is time to add more Users to your site you can access this form via the Users button and Invite New on the drop down menu as site Administrator. Once a new User has been you added, you will also have the ability to edit a User’s role via the All Users button seen in the drop down menu below.

This is a screen shot of the Users button being highlighted in the wp-admin role.

You may also wish to try out different User Role Editor Plugins in order to maximize the efficiency when managing a site’s pages, posts, comments and more.

What is the WordPress Visual Editor?

The point of the Visual Editor is to emulate software like Windows Notpad or like Apples TextEdit. It is somewhat basic but has some new features, like adding pictures and videos with in the content. In the editor it shows what the site will or might look like, hence WYSIWYG (What You See is What You Get) or also known as WYSIWYMG (What You See is What You Might Get). It is an easy way to build content without the creator needing to know the raw code.

This is what the Visual Editor looks like when the 2 rows are visible.
