Aside from being able to publish works and modify themes in WordPress, it also has a feature that allows you to create users. The responsibility and authority of users depend on its level. Their ability to manage the blog varies solely on the role they are assigned to. Creating WordPress user is very simple.
The very first thing you need to do is to log on to your WordPress site. When you are in the administrative panel, you simply need to click on the Users located on the left hand side panel of the page. Next thing to do is select Add New. You will be lead to a page that allows you to key in your username, first name, last name, email address, website and a strong password. You will also be asked to select your role. These roles include: subscriber, administrator, editor, author and contributor.
These levels have distinct functions. The Administrator is the highest level of user. It can change all the settings in the blog. It can as well switch themes and activate and edit plugins. It also has the power to edit users and edit files. The administrator can well manage options and import files.
On the other hand, an Editor is the second highest level next to the administrator. An editor can moderate comments and manage categories. They are also allowed to manage links, enter unfiltered html, edit published posts, edit other contributor’s posts and edit pages. While Authors are mostly the one who creates the content through posts on the website. They are also able to upload files and publish posts.
Another user is the Contributor. A contributor has one of the least powers among users. They can create and edit their own posts however they do not have the authority to upload images. Yet they are able to insert images that have previously been uploaded. The last kind of user is the Subscriber. The subscriber has the ability to read content published on the website as well as make comments. Although sometimes non subscribers are allowed to post comments on the blog.
