There are 3 levels of user security: Members, Editors, and Administrators.

Members are users that have been approved for standard access to the site. Members can view members only information like password protected pages and articles. Members can access built-in protected resources like message boards, member directories, and any other password protected resource. When a member logs in the can view and edit their own personal settings including their email address, mailing address, and member specific details.

Editors have the same access as standard members, but they also have the ability to edit basic content on the website like pages and articles. They can edit other built-in resources as well like the photo gallery and the calendar. Soon you will be able to specify exactly which resources an editor can manage. This will give detailed control over what and editor can change. If you have a multi-local package, you can also create Local Editors. Local Editors can only edit the information for their locals page.

Admins have full access to the website and can edit and manage all resources. Admins also have access to the Administration area where the main website controls and settings are located. The Admin security level should only be applied to trusted individuals within your main organization. We recommend keeping the number of admins for the site to a minimum, no more than 2 or 3 total, mostly for security purposes.
