|Welcome to the support documentation for the|
UBC CMS Service.
|UBC Collab Theme|
Before you add ANY user to a WordPress site, they need to have a CMS account (if using Blogs, then user must have a Blogs account). If the user does not have a CMS account, then they cannot be added to a site, and will cause confusion to parties involved.
1) make sure user has an account. If not, get them to create an account (go to cms.ubc.ca to do so)
2) send invite / follow instructions in the below scenarios
If you wish to add a user to the site:
Users can only be added through an email address Once you've entered the Add New User page, please do one of the following:
A user must have a valid CWL, email address and a CMS account to be added to a UBC CMS site. The diagram below offers an overview into the process for adding a user.
WARNING: Adding multiple users at once means that they will all have the same role and invitation expiry date. Users with differing roles should be added individually.
NOTE: Email addresses can be added simultaneously as long as they are separated by a semicolon (";").
The UBC CMS platform requires that users have a UBC Campus Wide Log-in (CWL) in order to log-in to the platform. However, it's a fairly straight forward process to sponsor guest UBC CWL accounts. More information on the process of sponsoring a guest account can be found at http://it.ubc.ca/cwl/support/tutorials/sponsor_guest.shtml.
