Permission levels on pages

Owner

Full "write" access to the page.

The owner of a page is usually the person who created it. The owner has full "write" access to the page, the same as Delete the page or change its settings. The owner exists so that at least one person always has access to a page.

Delete the page or change its settings

Full "write" access to the page.

Users with this permission can change all of the properties of a page: its title, settings, and permissions.

This permission is a super-set of the Append sub-pages to the page, Add content to the page, and Read permissions.

Append sub-pages to the page

Users with this permission can add sub-pages to a page, but cannot change the page's settings or add content directly to the page. When a user creates a sub-page, they will be the owner of that sub-page and will have full "write" access to that sub-page; giving them the ability to add content and append further sub-sub-pages to that sub-page.

This permission is a super-set of the Read permission.

Add content to the page

Users with this permission can add new content a page. When they create new content they will become the owner of that content and can continue to make changes to it. This permission does NOT grant users the ability to edit content already on a page. Content already on the page is only editable if the user is the owner of that content or has the "edit or delete this content" permission on that content.

This permission is a super-set of the Read permission.

Read

This permission allows a user to see the content.
