How Do I Set up WordPress Users?
By default there is an administrative account that has full control and is in charge of everything about the site (themes, plugins, settings, pages, and posts, etc…) If there are multiple people you want to include but you don’t want to give them full access to the site, WordPress gives you the option to create multiple users with varying access levels. Here are the steps:
- Log in to the wp-admin with user name and password.
- In the dashboard, click “Users”.
- Click “Add New”.
- Enter a Username, their email address, and a password.
- You can check the box for “Send Password” and this will send the password to the new user by email.
- Under Role
you can select the level you want for the user
a. Super Admin – somebody with access to the network administration features and all other features.
b. Administrator – somebody who has access to all the administration features within a single site.
c. Editor – somebody who can publish and manage posts including the posts of other users.
d. Author – somebody who can publish and manage their own posts.
e. Contributor – somebody who can write and manage their own posts but cannot publish them.
f. Subscriber – somebody who can only manage their profile.
