Many people run their SurreyCommunity.info site by themselves. However, it can be useful to share the workload of running a site - particularly if it is a large or busy site. 

To allow other people to help run your site, you have to add them as administrators. This is easy to do but be aware that administrators can do everything that you can do, including:

  • adding, editing and deleting pages
  • adding and removing members and administrators (including you!)
  • configuring your website

For this reason it is very important that you only allow people that you know and trust to be administrators.

 

To add a new administrator

The person must already be registered with SurreyCommunity.info and a member of your website. If they aren't, you'll need to invite them to join your website first.

  • Login to your site and go to your site admin page
  • Click on the Users and permissions tab
  • Find the person in the list of members
  • Click the make administrator button next to their name. They are now an administrator.

 

To remove an administrator

  • Login to your site and go to your site admin page
  • Click on the Users and permissions tab
  • Find the person in the list of members
  • Either:
    • Click the revoke administration button next to their name. They are now an ordinary member of your group.
    • Click the remove button next to their name. They will be removed from the list and treated as a member fo the public in terms of access to your site.
