Leafpub allows you to assign roles to each user on your team. This post describes the four types of roles that exist and what each one is capable of.

Available Roles

Owner

The owner account is the account you create when you install Leafpub. There can only be one owner account, and they have access to do anything and everything in the Leafpub admin panel.

If you delete a user, all their posts will be reassigned to the owner.

Administrator

Administrators can do everything except change or delete the owner account. They can:

  • Add, edit, and delete anyone's posts
  • Add, edit, and delete tags
  • Add, edit, and delete users
  • Manage navigation
  • Change settings

Editor

Editor's are not as powerful as administrators, but they do have the following privileges:

  • Add, edit, and delete anyone's posts
  • Add, edit, and delete tags
  • Update their own profile

Author

  • Add, edit, and delete their own posts
  • Update their own profile
