Back to Blog Front Editor Support

  • You can delegate as many ( frontend ) authors as you like. There is not currently a "usergroup" that allows users to be authors because each author has individual options tied to their role.


    • Which Backend User they are delegated to post for.
    • Which Categories they can post to.
    • Can they publish or just write drafts.
    • Can they upload images
  • If you chose not to use the delegated authors then you have to manually set all the above optins in the component when you add it to a page.

  • Blog plugin was originally just for backend authors so their is a "user_id" field that is associated with backend users. To keep the integrity of the relations each frontend author is assigned as a proxy so to speak for someone in the backend. This fills in the "user_id" field of the post.
