UO Blogs: Adding and Deleting Users From Your Blog

Overview

  • Additional users can be added to a blog. You may want to add a user if your blog is private and only visible to registered subscribers, but you would also like to have others contribute content.

  • Adding additional users to your blog or site is great for collaboration purposes. 

Information

Add Existing Users

As an administrator of your blog, you can add other registered users (users who have already logged into UO Blogs with their Duck ID and password). For instructions on how to add existing users to your blog, see Add Existing Users.

Add New Users

If you want to add a user to your blog who hasn't registered with UO Blogs yet, please have them go to UO Blogs and log in with their Duck ID and password. After they've been registered, follow the instructions under Add Existing Users above.

If you've followed the above steps and are still having difficulty adding users to your blog, please contact the Technology Service Desk through this form with a list of the username(s) or email address(s) of the user(s) you wish to add, as well as what role you'd like the user(s) to have.

Note: This request must come from the administrator of the blog. If you have more than a few users that need to be added, you must use the Batch User Creation form.

Batch User Creation

Batch creation is a process that quickly creates blogs or adds users to an existing blog in batches of tens, hundreds, or thousands. For example, this tool is very helpful for faculty who want to quickly add students to their class blog or site. For more information, see UO Blogs Batch User Creation spreadsheet. Once you have completed the batch user creation spreadsheet, you can submit it on the Web Development & Hosting form.

For more information on adding and managing users for your blog, see the following documentation and the Related Articles pane:
