Delete a staff user
To delete a staff user, click on the gear icon from the user’s profile in the Staff dashboard and select Delete User.
Suspend a staff user
It's possible to suspend a staff user, so they are unable to login to your Ghost Admin area. Suspended staff users retain their user profile and content attribution.
To suspend a user, click on the gear icon from the user’s profile in the Staff dashboard and select Suspend User.
There is only ever one owner user of a Ghost site which cannot be deleted. The owner user has all of the same permissions as the admin with some exceptions, for example, access to billing details if using Ghost(Pro).
There can only be one owner and this user cannot be deleted, but owners are able to transfer their ownership to another user. This can be done from the Settings → Staff area in Ghost Admin. Click on an Administrator staff user's profile and select the Make owner option from the gear icon in the top right-hand corner.
To change the password tied to a staff user account, you’ll need to first enter the old password, as well as configure a new one. Once saved, the new password will be required when logging into Ghost Admin.
