Grant Edit Access For Particular Pages

You can grant users editing access to particular pages on your site. This would mean that a user could edit the page you grant them access to, but they would not have access to edit anything else on the site. However, there are limitations to this:

  • You can only grant access to person pages and basic pages. For example, giving a faculty member access to edit their own person page.
  • Only one user can be given access to a page. All Content Editors and Site Owners will still have editing access.
  • Users can only edit the pages they have been given access to. They cannot create or place blocks, add files, etc.

  1. First you need to invite the person to be a user on your site. View the tutorial on inviting users.
