How Do I Assign a Role in Wix?

Last updated on October 1, 2022 @ 10:01 am

When you create a website with Wix, you can assign roles to other users so they can help manage your site. To assign a role, go to the “Users” tab in your site’s dashboard.

Click on the user you want to assign a role to. In the drop-down menu that appears, select the role you want to assign. The roles you can assign are:


Exciting update! We've collaborated with Wix to offer WBI users with a free plan for all website creation needs - Explore the details here.

Owner: This is the person who created the site. They have full control over all aspects of the site, including billing, plan upgrades, and deleting the site.

PRO TIP: If you are not careful when assigning roles in Wix, you could accidentally give someone too much control over your site. Be sure to only assign roles to people you trust, and be aware of what each role allows the user to do.

Admin: Admins can do everything owners can do, except for delete the site or change the owner. They can also add and remove users from the site.

Editor: Editors can create and edit content on the site, but they can’t manage users or change website settings.

Contributor: Contributors can create and edit content on the site, but they can’t publish it live. Their content will be held in a “draft” mode until an admin or editor approves it.

Once you’ve selected a role, click “Update” to save your changes.
