Deploy & Collaborate


From the Users page, you can invite collaborators to your site. These collaborators will receive an email notifying them of the invitation along with a link to access your site in Siteleaf.

Transferring Ownership

To transfer your site to another user, you’ll first need to add them to your site. After they’re added to your site, clicking on “Transfer ownership” will give them full ownership over the site and its contents, and your account will become an Admin on the site. The new owner will receive additional information via email.

User Roles

If you’re on a Team, Business, or Enterprise site plan, you can choose between three different user roles, each giving a different level of permission to your site.


The admin role gives full privileges to the collaborator, allowing them to manage and publish all content. This role is great for people who are helping build the site, like a developer or designer, since it allows them to upload theme files, change the site’s settings, and invite other collaborators.


The publisher role is similar to the admin role, however publishers aren’t able to access theme files or the site’s settings. This is a great role to grant to a client. It allows a person to manage and publish pages, posts and uploads, while protecting them from accidentally breaking the site’s theme.


The writer role is the most limited role available. A writer can only manage their own content, and any content they create will default to “Draft” status. This means that a Publisher or Admin must approve a writer’s content first before publishing it. This role is great for sites with many collaborators who only need access in order to add content (like a blog post).
