You need assign roles to the key staff in your newsroom which will determine the level of access to the Newsroom Smart Contract. There are three distinct roles in Civil Publisher:
- Officer - an admin role that has all possible capabilities in the newsroom smart contract, including adding other officers to the newsroom contract, signing and indexing posts, and controlling funds.
- Member - standard role that has access to the tools to index and sign posts on the blockchain. They cannot add Civil Officers to a newsroom contract
- None - some users in your newsroom will not be part of your day to day use of the Civil Publisher. They may, for example, not have a cryptocurrency wallet. Or they may not be involved in your publishing process. You can include them in your roster, but choosing “None” means they don't appear in your newsroom smart contract.
Note that these are roles separate from the default WordPress roles set in your newsroom. Learn more about WordPress user roles.
