The permissions system has two main functions. It can be used to create password-protected pages on your site (often called members’ areas). It can also be used to create additional editor accounts with different editing rights.

To manage permissions, go into edit mode, click the Panels button on the toolbar, and click the Permissions button:

The permissions panel will then open in a new browser tab.Note that only the site owner account can access the permissions panel, and additional editor accounts do not have access.

Changing the site owner username and password

To change the site owner username and password, click Site owner in the menu on the left of the Permissions panel to see the site owner form:

Enter a username and password (or leave the password field blank to keep the existing password) and then click Save to save the changes. The username can be any text, but we recommend using an e-mail address as you will then be able to click the Forgotten password? link on the log-in page to reset your password if you forget it.
