Adding new users with editing access

Search user displayAdd user fields

To add a user who can login and edit areas of your website please follow the steps below.

  1. Login to the dashboard and click "Search Users". If you do not see this option in your dashboard you may need it to be enabled by DP as an additional feature.
  2. Click the blue "Add user" buttom
  3. Enter data into the required fields (email, username and password)
  4. Untick the two fields for private messaging and email notifications as this feature is not enabled as standard.
  5. Tick the box next to the required access level under "Groups". Generally there will be an "Editors" group which most users should be added to. Please speak to your account manager if there are additional groups available.

Note: Please do not add users to the administrator group as this will provide additional functionality which may potentially take own your website or cause damage to the CMS.

I need a user to have access to a specific section, block or component on the website.

If you need new groups setting up with specific access to a component or section of the website we will need to set this up for you. Please speak to your account manager.
