Administrators have the same privileges as the blog owner, so they can write, edit and delete their own and other entries as well as creating groups, changing the blog's appearance and creating categories - everything that a blog owner can do. It is more usual for non-personal blogs to have contributors such as administrators.

To add an administrator:

  1. In the row marked 'Administrators', type the person's IT Services username in the text box next to 'Add'.

    If you can't remember their username then you can click on the 'user lookup' icon User Lookup Icon and search for it:

    • Enter their first and/or last name and click 'Search'. A list of possible users and login codes will be displayed.
    • Click on the appropriate login code and SiteBuilder will automatically enter the login code for you.
  2. Click on the 'Add' button. 

Add administrator

You should see that their name has now appeared under 'Administrators'. This person should now be able to sign into your blog as an administrator.

To remove an administrator:

  1. Click on the 'Remove' button next to the name of the person that you wish to remove.

Remove administrator

You should see that their name has been removed from the list.

Example: If you have set up a non-personal blog to report on a shared project, you may want to make other members of the project group contributors on the blog.
