How To Add Users To WordPress

To add a new user to WordPress first log in as the administrator by adding /wp-admin to the end of the homepage URL.

After you’re logged in you’ll see a dashboard with a bunch of options.

This is called the admin view.

On the left side of the screen you’ll see a menu with several options that run down the screen.

Scroll down until you see the “users” menu item.

If you hover over that option, on the right will appear some options, the top one should be add user.

Click on add user.

A new screen will pull up asking for name, email and to set a password or use a default.

Enter whatever information you want for the user, and then select what type of role you would like the new user to have.

If this is someone you want to have all access to the website select administrator because admins can access the whole website and make changes without needed clearance from someone else.

Other users will have certain restrictions or will require certain permissions.

If you want, you can even create your own roles and permissions.

Once all relevant information has been added and selected hit “save” at the bottom of that page.

The new user should receive an email inviting them to log in and change their password in that same user menu as before.

With that, you have your new user and they should have their own password entered.

Good to go!
