Revoking Permissions from a User
Revoking permissions from a user is reserved for System Administrators, or for Blog Administrators acting within a particular blog.
Revoking a permission does not delete a user from the system; instead it merely prevents the user from performing the role on the blog where the permission was assigned. You can revoke permissions from a user from any permissions listing screen in Movable Type, whether it’s displaying all permissions in the system, or a filtered view of permissions assigned to an individual user or a listing of users on an individual blog.
To revoke permissions from a user from the System-Wide Permissions screen:
Switch to the System Overview area of Movable Type by clicking on the blog selection menu and choosing “System Overview.”
Click Manage > Users from the System Overview’s main menu. This will open a listing of all users that exist in your system.
In the left-hand menu, click on “Permissions” to switch to the listing of System-Wide Permissions.
Locate the permission you wish to revoke from a user (or multiple permissions from multiple users) and click on the checkbox to the left of the user name to select that permission.
Click on the “Revoke” button. Movable Type will ask you to confirm your selection before it revokes the permission from the user.
