UO Blogs: Changing User Roles


When you set up a blog you have the ability to assign and control what other users can do in the blog depending on the tasks you want each user to be responsible for. This page details how to change those roles.


Two actions:

  1. Change user roles
  2. Remove user

Change User Roles

As an administrator or teacher of a blog, you can change other users’ roles as follows:

1.  Go to Users > All Users  in your dashboard

All Users

2.  Select the user you want to change

Select the user

3.  Click on drop down arrow next to ‘Change role to’ and select the new role.

4.  Click Change.

Select User role

Remove User

This option removes the user by deleting them from the blog.  It does not delete their username.   Another alternative is to change their role to subscriber — as a subscriber they can only edit their profile.

1.  Go to Users > All Users  in your dashboard

All Users

2.  Hover your mouse over their username and click Remove


If you want to remove multiple users from your blog then you select each username you’d like to remove using the check boxes, select Remove from the Bulk Actions drop down and click Apply.
