What are permissions?
Permissions allow you to decide how different types of users will be able to see and use your SilkStart site.
Managing permissions enables you to set different privileges for groups of users to create, view, and manage information in different places on your site based on their membership plan, and whether they are logged in or not. Setting custom permissions allows you to make some tools public, and keep some member areas private.
How do I change permissions?
The Manage Permissions page is structured into columns for each type of user, and rows for each permission.
- Log in as an administrator and click on Settings > Manage Permissions
- Select or unselect any permission from the column belonging the user group you wish to change (Directory permissions are listed under the "User" category of the grid)
Select one of the preset options from the top of the column (None, View Only, Basic)
- Click Save Changes
