Very important notes

  • We cannot stress enough that you should only give out full administrative access to users that you trust 120%. We've seen hundreds of cases where a website owner gives access to an administrator who he trusts (at the time), and the administrator ends up compromising the entire website weeks later.
  • There are alternatives to giving out administrator. For example, you could create a custom tag called "administrator" that looks exactly the same, but allows you to set what permissions they have across the entire website. Look here on how to set this up.
  • A full administrator can manage 95% of the website. That being said, please make sure you consider note #2 above.
