Changing Permission Levels for an Existing User

This article will walk you through the steps necessary to change a users permission levels within the blog environment. Please note that 1) SMC reserves the right to make these changes, and 2) the only available permissions settings are ‘Editor’ and ‘Contributor’.

To change a user’s permission, navigate to the left sidebar on your dashboard panel and locate the ‘users’ tab.

Underneath that, you’ll find a secondary tab titled “all users”.

Click on that tab and either locate the person who you’d like to change, hover over their username and click ‘edit’.

Under the ‘Role’ dropdown menu you’ll find a listing of available user permissions.


Select the appropriate permission level for your user (either Editor or Contributor) and click the bottom blue button labeled ‘update user’.

If you’d like to change a users permission level, please contact your web coordinator.
