Removing another contributor from your site

If a contributor doesn't need access to your site or if they leave your business, you might want to remove them. This blocks them from logging in and making any changes.

If the contributor created content on your site, you'll be prompted to transfer ownership of their content to a different contributor.

Tip: To remove yourself as a contributor, visit Removing yourself as a contributor.

Before you begin

Remove a contributor

To remove a contributor, or at minimum, remove all of their permissions, follow these steps:

  1. In the Home Menu, click Settings, and then click Permissions.

  1. Click the contributor's profile.

  1. Scroll down and click Remove Access to remove all of their permissions.


  1. The contributor moves to the Contributors Without Permissions section. If they may need access later, you can leave them in this section and stop here. To remove them completely, continue to the next step.

  1. In the Contributors Without Permissions section, click the contributor's name.
  2. Click Remove Contributor.

  1. In the drop-down menu in the window that appears, select a replacement contributor. This ensures that all content they contributed, such as blog posts, has a new author listed in their place.
Tip: To add a new name to this menu, click Cancel, add a new contributor or basic author, and then restart this process.
  1. Click Transfer and Remove.
