When using WordPress, you may need to give more than one user access to edit your site or blog. You can create multiple users for WordPress and give each user a different role.

Before you create a user, you should understand the types of users that WordPress allows you to create. There are five categories of WordPress users:

  • Administrator - This user has access to all of the administrative functions for the WordPress site.
  • Editor - This user can publish and manage posts, including posts created by other users.
  • Author - This user can manage and publish their posts but not those of other users.
  • Contributor - This user can write and manage posts but cannot publish them. They need to be published by a higher user.
  • Subscriber - This user can only view the site and manage their profile.

To learn more about how to log in to WordPress Dashboard, please see How To Login To WordPress Sites - WP Admin Access.

Now that you understand the types of users, follow these steps to add and delete a user.
