There are a number of features available in the Widen Collective to you and your users that help you more seamlessly connect your content to your brand. Some are automatically enabled for you during site implementation - active features - and others have associated costs. You can disable those that are automatically enabled anytime then re-enable them as you need.


When you enable features, you can also simultaneously enable permissions for roles that can access those features. Permissions can also be enabled on the Roles page.
