Grav: creating a user with editor role
When you install Grav by default you will have an user with Administrator role for the Admin panel, with full access on all website’s contents and configurations.
An user with the Editor role should be allowed to manage only website pages, without having access to configurations (configurations, plugins and themes). This could be really nice if you need to give permissions for modify page contents to someone else, hiding to him all website configurations.
Here is how to create a new user with such role.
1. Create a new user
Start the creation of a new user by typing following command from the website root:
$ php -f bin/plugin login newuser
Will be asked you to fill the following values:
username: the username for the new user (e.g.: editor)
password: the password for the new user
Admin and Site Access
full name: the displayed name
title: you can set
2. Create the editor role
Open this file (or create it if it does not exists):
and add the following content to create a new group named
editors: icon: users readableName: 'Editor Users' description: 'The group of editors users' access: admin: login: true pages: true maintenance: true super: false site: login: true
3. Assign the editor role to the new user
Open the file:
[username] is the username of the new user (created at step 1).
Replace these lines:
access: admin: login: true super: true site: login: true
groups: - editors
In order to assign the new user to the
So now you should have something like this:
email: firstname.lastname@example.org groups: - editors fullname: Editor title: Editor state: enabled hashed_password: $5g$32$VC.QXG6Nycds0d5UvCDj0dHGFDlFsLcC.JQE4SNqoR2
Save the file.
Now you can try to access the Admin panel with the new user. You should see only the Pages tab in the left sidebar (other than Dashboard and Logout). All the site’s cofigurations are not available for this user.
