Add user accounts for editors, staff members
July 17, 2023
The WordPress publishing system allows for multiple user accounts and administrative privileges. Your setup already includes a user account for the adviser. You can add as many users as you want to your site giving each one a unique role.
Users who are Administrators have access to all the administration features, including comment moderation, design tools, widgets, galleries, and polls.
Those users who are set up as Editors can publish articles, manage articles as well as manage other people’s articles, etc.
Authors can can publish and manage their own articles. Contributors, on the other hand, can write and manage their articles but not publish articles. And a Subscriber is unable to make any changes or submissions to the site. We recommend that all graduates and other former staff members be switched to the Subscriber role.
To add user accounts, click Add New under the Users tab on the left navigation bar in the WordPress dashboard, complete the new user fields, and click the Add User button.
