Editing contributor permissions

To change what a contributor can edit in your Squarespace site, you can edit their permissions in the permissions panel. Only the owner and administrators can edit contributor permissions.

For help choosing the right permissions, visit Squarespace permissions explained.

Before you begin

  • Contributors can't edit their own permissions.
  • Administrators can edit the permissions of any other contributor, including other administrators, except the owner.
  • When a contributor has administrator permissions, they have the permissions of all other roles, so other permission toggles are disabled.
  • Squarespace doesn't support per-page editing permissions.

Edit permissions

To edit permissions:

  1. Open the permissions panel. This panel displays all contributors.
  2. In the Contributors section, click the contributor's name.
  3. Switch the toggles for permissions on or off based on what you want this contributor to manage. You can enable multiple permissions. For more information about available permissions, visit Squarespace permissions explained.
  4. Click Save.
  1. Tap Settings, then tap Permissions. This panel displays all contributors and how recently they logged into the site.
  2. Tap a contributor’s name.
  3. A list of permissions will open. Switch the toggles beside the permissions on or off. You can enable multiple permissions. For more information about available permissions, visit Squarespace permissions explained.
  4. Tap Save.

Remove a contributor

If a contributor doesn't need access to edit your site (for example, if they're no longer with your company) remove their contributor profile.
