Users and permissions

Creating an account on pagebloom or any of the websites hosted on pagebloom is free and easy.

You may have been sent here because an administrator of a website hosted on pagebloom wishes to grant you permission to perform certain roles on that website for which you need a pagebloom account. If so then you have come to the right place!

Just follow these simple steps:
  1. Go to the website that you wish to create an account for. An administrator of the website might have already provided you with the URL for their website. If so then you should enter that URL into a new browser tab and press enter. If not you can enter and create an account there and it will work for any pagebloom hosted website.
  2. Click on the "Log in/ Sign up" link in the top right hand corner of the page.
  3. Click on the "Sign up" button on the Log in/Sign up screen.
  4. Enter your email address and other details and press "Create account"
  5. Send your administrator an email letting him or her know that you have created an account and if you are part of a sub organization (i.e. a sports team, department, section etc.,) please include the name of that sub organization (eg., Under 10 Reds or SE Asia Marketing or Retail etc.,)

Pagebloom uses a role-based permission system to control access to restricted features of your website. For example, only people with the Author role can create news articles. These roles apply to the organization they're configured for, and are inherited in all child organizations beneath it.

Adding users

Note: Your users must have a pagebloom account to give them permissions. Please ensure they've registered an account before continuing.

To give a user permissions on your site:

  1. In the admin panel, navigate to the organization or child organization you're adding this user to.
  2. In the left menu, go to Organization > People.
  3. Click the Add person button at the top.
  4. You can either search for the intended user by their name, or you can enter their email address directly if you know it. Once you've indicated the person you want, click Next.
  5. Add desired roles by selecting them in the left list and clicking Add >. This will add them to the assigned roles list on the right. Some organizations also have premade role groups, sets of roles that are often assigned together. To add a role group, select the group at the top left and click Add group >. This will add the group's roles individually to the assigned roles list.
  6. When you're happy with this user's roles, click Finish. Their name and roles should now appear in the People list.

Changing existing users

You can add or remove roles for users you've already set up.

  1. In the admin panel, navigate to the organization or child organization you're changing.
  2. In the left menu, go to Organization > People.
  3. Next to the name of the person you want to change, click the Roles button.
  4. To add a new role, click the Add role button. Select the role you want to add, then click Save.
  5. To remove a role, select the role you want to remove and then click the Terminate role button.
