    Hi!

    I need to modify the 'contributor' permissions to allow them to create new pages, in addition to posts for review, and allow them to upload files.

    right now, contributors can only
    1. Create new post and submit for review
    2. Manage previous posts

    I need them to be able to:

    1. Create new posts and pages for submission for review.
    2. Manage all posts and pages as well as the ability to upload files.

    How can I go about doing this?

    WordPress Role Manager Plugin is designed for this:

    Hi!

    Thanks, this works! However, I'm a little confused here. If I was to activate this plugin for say blog 1, and I change the settings for the 'contributor' role, will it affect all the blogs on my site, or will it only affect blog 1?

    I need the settings to be changed site-wide.

    @skylive - Blog 1... that sounds logical to me.

    It will only affect the blog the plugin is being used under, like all plugins made for normal wordpress. You would have to modify it to make the changes sitewide.
