Site Management

Each site within OWS is assigned a site administrator who can invite and manage other users in contributing to the site.  If you are the only member of a site, then you are its administrator.  Additionally, only administrators can edit the home page of a site or change the site's name, description, and mission statement.

To add additional members to an existing site:

  1. Login with an administrative account or with an account that has administrative abilities (group manager, etc.) within a particular site;
  2. Navigate to the site's home page;
  3. Click on the link that says '[#] members;'
  4. Click on the 'Add members' tab;
  5. Here you may type in as many names of users (separated by commas) as you would like.  All listed users will gain instant access to the site's creation and editing functions, which will allow them to create pages and edit group authorship pages.

To edit membership status within a site:

  1. Login with an administrative account or with an account that has administrative abilities (group manager, etc.) within a particular site;
  2. Navigate to the site's home page;
  3. Click on the link that says '[#] members;'
  4. Click on the 'List' tab;
  5. Click on the 'Remove membership link' to remove a member from a site or the 'Admin: Create' link to make a member a site admin, which will give him or her access to edit the home page and manage site membership (invite and dismiss members).
