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 for what you want each user to have responsibility.


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
  2. Select the user you want to change
  3. Click on drop-down arrow next to Change role to and select the new role.
  4. Click Change.

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
    Users menu with All Users highlighted
  2. Hover your mouse over their username and click Remove

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

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