Editor (Editor) is a user under the administrator who can edit the quality of each post or content created by users under it. So he can create and edit every aspect of it. This includes files, images and uploaded media. Editors can also moderate comments on posts.


Author (Author) is a user level who only has access to create or write and can only modify articles from their own results. He can also publish his writings at that time. However it does not have the ability to moderate site comments.


Contributor (Contributor) is a level of user who can only make posts or articles, but he can not be published directly. To be published, it must be previewed by the Author or Editor.
