User domain roles
A user domain role, or just role for brevity, defines what actions a user can perform on Comentario with respect to a specific domain. For example, a user can be an Owner in one domain, but a Commenter in another.
Roles can be assigned in the Domain users section of the Administration UI by domain owners or superusers.
Comentario recognises the following roles.
The Owner role allows a user to fully manage the domain:
- Edit domain properties and configuration (such as authentication and moderation options);
- Perform domain-wide actions (such as importing and exporting comments);
- Delete the domain;
- Manage and moderate domain-specific content (such as pages and comments);
- Manage domain users (including assigning roles) and see their email addresses.
- View domain statistics.
The Moderator role allows a user to moderate all comments in the domain: approve, reject, edit, and delete them.
Moderators cannot see other users’ email addresses, only names.
The Commenter role allows a user to leave comments on domain pages, and edit or delete own comments.
This is the default role for new users registering on a page with comments.
The Read-only role allows a user to read comments, but not to write them. This role is mostly intended for keeping naughty commenters at bay.
