[Video] Setting Up Different Access for Users On Your WordPress Site

This video walks you through the process of setting up different types of users for your WordPress site. If editors would like to let staffers have access to put stories onto wordpress, this would allow them to have access to post stories, but not publish them. To publish them an ‘administrator’ on the site, like an editor, would have to go in and move the post from ‘pending’ to ‘published.’ This could come in very handy and save your Web team quite a bit of time by allowing staffers to take part of the work out of the job. You can see a larger version of the video here.
