The strength of WordPress lies not just in its content management capabilities but also in its flexibility to accommodate multiple users with varied access levels. Here’s a detailed guide on how to add new users:
Access the Admin Dashboard: The first step involves logging into your WordPress dashboard by adding /wp-admin at the end of your website’s URL.
Locate the ‘Users’ Option: On the left-hand sidebar of your dashboard, there’s a ‘Users’ tab. Hover over or click on it and select the ‘Add New’ option from the dropdown.
Input the Essential Details: A screen will appear, prompting you to enter the new user’s details and choose a role from the ‘Role’ dropdown. Choose among Subscriber, Contributor, Author, Editor, and Administrator, as this determines the level of access and control the new user will have over your website.
Password Management: Set a password yourself or allow WordPress to auto-generate one.
Finalize and Add: After ensuring all details are accurate, click the ‘Add New User’ button.
