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. Invite the user and give them a role of "author".

  2. After they accept the invite, create or edit a post, and add them as an author.

  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.
