Guest Authors

Sometimes it's necessary to add an author to a post, but without actually giving them full access to the admin portions of your site accessible by the site owner, and staff members.
To help with this, you can invite a user and give them a role of Author. After adding them to your site, you can add them as an author to a post. Once added they will be able to access this under /authors/posts.
  1. 1.
    Invite the user and give them a role of "author".
  2. 2.
    After they accept the invite, create or edit a post, and add them as an author.
  3. 3.
    They should see the post under authors/posts, and will have access to edit the title, excerpt, and image for the post.
Heads up! Authors do not have the ability to publish a post. They can only edit the title, excerpt, content, and post image.
