How to Add a User to a WordPress Website

Follow steps 1 to 4 in this screenshot when you need to add a new user to your WordPress website.

Keep in mind:

  • It might sound obvious, but make sure you set a strong password. WordPress websites are a common target for hackers and spammers.
    • You should also install a security plugin, like “Limit Login Attempts”.
  • Set the appropriate “Role”. The role of “Administrator” has the capacity to erase your website. This is what WordPress says about each Role:
    • Subscribers can read comments/comment/receive newsletters, etc. but cannot create regular site content.
    • Contributors can write and manage their posts but not publish posts or upload media files.
    • Authors can publish and manage their own posts, and are able to upload files.
    • Editors can publish posts, manage posts as well as manage other people’s posts, etc.
    • Administrators have access to all the administration features.
