Permission Levels Administrators As an Administrator, you can rename or delete anything on the wiki. Administrators can add users, change their permission levels or remove them. Admins alone have access to the wiki's Settings page and are also the only ones who can change page and folder level security settings. Admins are the only ones who can see Hidden pages or edit Locked pages. Editors Editors are trusted helpers who are highly privileged Writers. They can rename or delete pages, files and folders. Editors should be highly trusted, since they can delete your data irrevocably. Writers The recommended default for invited users. Writers can edit pages and revert pages to previous versions. They can also upload new files and create new pages. Writers cannot perform any action that cannot be undone. Readers Readers cannot make any modifications at all to a wiki. They can view pages, RSS feeds, and files. They can also see the history of changes that have been made to a page. Page Level Only A role unique to PBwiki 2.0, these users have no special access to any part of the wiki until they are explicitly given access to a page or a folder with the Custom Security setting. This feature allows you to give individual users up to Editor level permissions on a single page (or group of pages in a folder) without giving them access to any other part of the wiki.
