User Roles in WordPress

WordPress Basics #11 – Understanding User Roles – CREDIT: Syntax

WordPress has several default user roles that serve different purposes on your website:

  1. Administrator: This role has full control over your WordPress site. Administrators can install plugins, change themes, delete content, and manage other users, including other administrators.
  2. Editor: Editors can add, edit, publish, and delete their own posts, as well as posts by other users. However, they don’t have access to website settings, plugins, themes, and other admin tools.
  3. Author: Authors can add, edit, and publish their own posts, along with uploading files. They cannot edit or publish posts by other users or access admin tools like plugins and themes.
  4. Contributor: Contributors can add and edit their own posts but cannot publish them. They are also unable to edit other users’ posts and accessing admin tools.
  5. Subscriber: Subscribers cannot add or edit posts, but they can create a profile and save their details for quicker commenting. Additionally, you can use plugins to provide subscribers with access to members-only content.

To manage users on your WordPress site, as an administrator, you can add or remove users at any time. Simply go to the Users tab in your WordPress admin to access the user page, where you can edit or delete user accounts as needed.

For more information on WordPress user roles and how they communicate with each other, you can refer to our beginner’s guide to WordPress user roles and permissions.
