Adding User Roles
If the pre-defined user roles don't match the work flow for your UDrupal Web site—as a site administrator—you can create additional roles.
For example, if one person will be monitoring the interactive portions of your site (FAQs, Blogs, Comments, etc.), you might want to define a new role for the person who is responsible for this task. We'll use this new role as an example.
- Log in to your UDrupsite as site administrator.
- Navigate to the Roles page [Administer > User management > Roles].
- In the dialog box, type a name for the new role.
- Click Add role. (In the following example, the name of the new role is MODERATOR).
- The new role will appear on the list of roles for your site. For the new role to take effect, you must click edit permissions.
- Scroll down the list of permissions and place a checkmark in the box(es) that correspond to the permissions you wish to give the new role.
Each Drupal module has permissions you will need to set for the new role.
- After you set the permissions, click Save permissions (at the bottom of the page).
- If you want to change the name of the new role, click Roles from the Navigation menu.
- Click edit role.
- Type the new name of the role in the text box.
- Click Save role.
