Adding a new user to wordpress
is something that most site owners will have to do eventually. Here is a video tutorial in our WordPress Training Series on how to add a user in wordpress.
WordPress Default User Roles
Subscriber – Can only Read Posts
Contributor – Can make a post – but not publish their own post.
Author – Create their own posts, delete their own posts, publish their posts only.
Editor – Create their own posts, delete their own posts, can access and publish anyone else’s posts
Admin – Can do anything with anyone’s posts as well as install plugins, modify code, change themes, etc….
Rule of Thumb-
Give users the lowest level of access possible. Do not give them more power than is necessary. Especially restrict administrators if at all possible.
