    Hi,

    I've just realised that by setting my aMember subscribers as 'Editor' in Wordpress integration, they have 'write' permissions that I don't want them to have.

    I have changed the 'protect folder' integration to now give 'Contributor' status (which is fine, as they cannot publish), and I assume this will assign that status for new customers.

    My question is that when I try to change an existing user from 'Editor' to 'Contributor' in Wordpress, they disappear from the 'aMember Active' user list in Wordpress.

    Is this a problem, or simply a display issue?

    Thanks,
    Matt

    I would set them to subscriber.

    Do not set them as 'Subscriber' if you wish to allow them to create posts, set them as 'Contributor'.

    As a Contributor they will be able to create posts but not publish them.

    This is the use case we require for our project.
