Rick..

I need to figure out if one of the WP user levels (Contributor, Author, Editor) would allow me to set up someone who would be able to see/read pages on a WP site where I have a Maintenance Mode Thesis skin in use for the public -- but in the background I am using Agility. Agility will be the skin when the site can launch publicly.

I don't want the person to be at a user level that would be "dangerous" -- meaning I don't want them to be able to do anything to the skin or code in any way . I just want them to be able to see /read the pages that are in Preview mode now in Agility.

I have this site that has basically been completely done for more than 6 months, but still can't launch because the business is moving and some of the referenced professionals are changing and they don't want the "real" site to be seen by the public until all those changes happens. Therefore the Maintenance mode skin has been in place for what seems forever and I can't set it to Agility for the person who needs to see it, to see it publicly.

Do you know what level of user I can set up someone that would let them also see the Agility Preview skin and its pages/posts -- and not have them set up as an Administrator?

 

Thanks much.

Only the admin role will work for that.  They must be able to 'edit_theme_settings' in order to see the preview mode.

Thanks Rick -- I suspected that might be the case.
