2.1 Roles

Access Manager uses WordPress built-in Roles and their capabilities:

  • Subscriber
    • Can view all Knowledge Base content on the front-end.
    • Does not have access to any Knowledge Base administrative screens.
  • Contributor
    • Can view all Knowledge Base content on the front-end.
    • Can create KB Articles for Editor review.
    • Can edit his/her own KB Articles.
  • Author
    • Can view all Knowledge Base content on the front-end.
    • Can create KB Articles.
    • Can edit his/her own KB Articles.
  • Editor
    • Can view all Knowledge Base content on the front-end.
    • Can create KB Articles.
    • Can edit any KB Article.
    • Can create KB Categories and KB Tags.
    • Can edit any KB Category or KB Tag.
  • KB Manager
    • The user in this role is considered to be an “administrator” for a given knowledge base.
    • For multiple Knowledge Bases, the manager controls all of them.
    • Unlike WordPress administrator, the KB Manager cannot access KB licenses.

    WordPress Administrator can access and change any KB content and configure Access Manager.

    Note:

    Note: If you need to restrict access to KB using custom Roles coming from other plugins (like an e-commerce store) then consider the Custom Roles add-on. If you need to restrict content more granularly (with different users having access to different categories) then look at the KB Groups add-on.
