Site Members: Setting Permissions for a Member Badge

2 min read
Give your badge special permissions to access specific members-only pages. For example, you may want to give specific members a "teacher" badge and you could give these "teachers" special permissions to access teaching resources that you don't want students to have access to. Only those members that have the badge will have access to those pages.
Before you begin:
To use member badges, you must install a Member's Area on your site.

To add permissions to a member badge:

  1. Go to Site Members
  2. Click More Actions at the top right and click Manage Badges.
  3. Click the Show More icon on the badge you want to change.
  4. Click Edit.
  5. Click the Permissions tab.
  6. Enable the toggle.
  7. Manage your permissions in the table.
Member badge roles and permissions example:
You may have already set up teacher roles on your site for specific members, and given them exclusive access to a 'Lessons' page. You may then create a "Maths Teacher" badge and set permissions for badge holders to also have access to a 'Maths Lessons' page. Any member that has both the teacher role and the Maths Teacher badge will have access to both pages.
