How do I add viewers to a site (i.e. give individual users permission to view a site)?

Updated Aug 13, 2020

By assigning Reader users, API Access users, and Groups to a protected site you can grant users access to the content in the protected site. These users cannot upload lessons or modify content. You are simply giving these users permission to view the content in a site.

There are two steps to giving an individual user permission to view a site:

  1. Create a reader account for the user
  2. Add the reader account to the site

This article will show you how to add a reader account to a site.

If your site is not protected (i.e. private), you do not need to add readers to it. If you want to restrict access to some articles in a public site you can set permissions on individual articles in the site.

Add the reader user to your site

Select your site > click Viewers

  1. Select the site you want to add reader users to.
  2. Click Viewers

Click Add User or Add Group

Click Add next to the user or group you would like to add
