The New Editor Interface: understanding the default simple editing user role

The New Editor Interface is designed to accommodate the needs of a wide range of user types, from the professional website designer to SMBs with various levels of digital proficiency.

It is possible for partners to define their own, custom end user limitations and thereby tailor-make user roles that fit specific needs in the market.

By default, the Editor is set up with two pre-defined user roles: a full-access (admin) version with all features and settings available; and a simple editing version where the user can perform a limited set of actions.

Below you'll find a detailed comparison of the two user roles.

Both user roles have access to changing their website theme.
