How to Grant User Access to your WordPress Site

Your WordPress site can have multiple administrators, editors, authors, and contributors, so you don’t have to manage your site on your own. It also keeps your account secure by giving you a way to allow others to edit/manage your site without using your login.

Before choosing the appropriate role for users, ask yourself about these key points: Will you let users manage your WordPress dashboard? Do you trust them to organize your site’s content? Should you review their posts before publishing? Are they capable enough to edit and publish other users’ posts?

Now let’s walk you through on how to grant a user access to your WordPress site.

 

Grant User Access to your WordPress Site

1. Access the admin dashboard of your WordPress site.

Be cautious when appointing another user as a new administrator. Once assigned, they get full access to your admin panel. They can even edit or delete your account.

 

 

6. After you assigned the role, click the Add New User button. 

 

You should see the new user added on the Users section.

Since the notification is checked, this is the email address that your user will receive. It contains a link to reset the password and a link to login to the WordPress admin dashboard.
