There are several reasons why you might want to add users to your WordPress website.
For example, you may want to limit comments to only those who are registered with your site. You may want to let other people write and/or edit articles for you, or even administer a website for you, so you don’t have to. Each of these roles need to be filled by a registered user.
From this new page you must enter the user’s User Name, E-Mail address, and Password. Optionally, you can also add their First and Last name, and a website, if they have one.
The role is chosen from a drop down menu. By default, the user will be a subscriber, which only gives them the ability to read content, and comment. However there are other choices you can make as well. Learn more about Roles by clicking here.
You can also choose to send the new user an email with their password.
Once you save the user, by clicking on the Add New User button, you are then taken to a list of all users. From here you can edit the user by clicking on their name. Additional configuration settings are then available to edit, such as their color scheme, if they use the WYSIWYG editor, and more.
