Creating additional editor accounts

The Permissions panel can be used to create additional editor accounts with different editing rights.

Creating a group

To create additional editor accounts, first create a group that will be granted editing rights. Click Groups in the menu on the left of the Permissions panel to display the group list, as shown in figure 1.

Figure 1. the group list

The field at the top of the group list lets you create a new group by entering its name and clicking Create. Below this is a list of the existing groups, including the number of users within each group.

Setting editing rights

Click on a group name to display the editing rights form, as shown in figure 2.

Use the Can edit field to set which pages members of the group can edit. Members of the group will be able to log-in on the select page and any of its sub-pages. The Can access album and Can access directory fields can be used to set which albums and directories members of the group can access while editing. Check the checkboxes to grant other editing rights to members of the group.

Click Save to save the changes to the editing rights.

Creating a user

Finally, add users to the group. Click Users in the menu on the left of the Permissions panel to display the user list, as shown in figure 3.

Click Add user to create a new user. Give the user a username, password, and select the group to which they will belong. You can also specify an expiry date, which causes the user account to be deactivated on that date.

To delete an existing user, check the checkbox on the appropriate row.
