SmartMomz offers different roles to members depending on their activity level. You may also Contact Us in case you would like to upgrade your account to Author Mode.
- Author – They don’t need the administrator’s permission to publish a post or comment on the site, and can add videos, photos and sound clips to their blog posts.
- Contributor – This is the default member role, and most of the moms here are in this role. They can also add videos, sound clips and pictures to their blog posts. They just need administrator’s permission first before publishing a post or a comment on the site. After they write a blog post or a comment, they need to wait for sometime to see it on the site, that is after the site owner reviews it.
- Subscriber – Somebody who can only manage her profile and cannot post blogs. This role is mostly for spammers, and such users are deleted in case they do not provide good credentials.
Sorry for the trouble, but I hope you checked your email for completing the registration by activating your account.
Another case can be that your registration was taken as a spam. Don’t worry, admins are able to notice all registrations and will be in touch with you. In case of spam registrations, members do not get a welcome mail, in which the activation link is there to activate their account. So their username and password is still to be activated with the site. So make sure you click the activation link in case you get the welcome mail.
Still not sure? Don’t worry, just contact me and I will be very happy to assist you :). Support us by participating more and strengthening the community and soon we will have a feature to allow users to register using their facebook accounts.
Go to Community->Members. The list of members will be loaded, now click on any member’s name you want to connect with. Some page like this will open, click the “Add Friend” button.
