Pressable makes it easy for you to collaborate with other people on your website. This makes it easy for you to share credentials with designers, developers and other collaborators, while keeping your account and other sites in it safe and secure. Collaborator access will grant them site-specific access to MyPressable, the site’s wp-admin, SFTP, and phpMyAdmin.

Add a Collaborator

To add a collaborator to your project login to MyPressable, click the name of the site you wish to add the collaborator to, and click on the Users/FTP icon.


Enter the collaborator’s email address and a username and click “Add Collaborator”.

Your collaborator will receive an email that looks something like this:


And that link will take them to a login page that looks like this:

Collaborator Access

Collaborators only have access to the website they have been added to, and can only view/edit what is visible below:

Removing a Collaborator

You can remove collaborators at any time by visiting MyPressable, clicking on the Users/FTP tab and clicking on the “Remove” link under the collaborator’s information.

Also be sure to edit that user within your WordPress website to convert them to a “Subscriber” role


Collaborating on a Website

If you’ve been asked to collaborate on a Pressable website, you’ll receive an email asking you to create a password.

Once you’ve done so you’ll have access to your own MyPressable control panel, with your own SFTP details.
