This ‘Create and Edit Users’ tutorial covers:

  • Finding the ‘Users’ tab in WordPress
  • Adding a new user
  • Password security
  • Understanding user roles
  • ‘Edit User’ options
  • Editing an existing gallery

The ‘Users’ tab in the WordPress dashboard lets you add and manage Users on your site. The ‘Users’ feature allows you to limit access to what each user can access by assigning them ‘Roles’. WordPress has six pre-defined roles for limiting users access to view, write, edit, upload, publish and manage your sites content.

To add a user click the ‘Add New’ option under the ‘Users’ tab in the WordPress dashboard. Fill in the required fields on the form and create a password. A password strength indicator is available for added security. Choose to email the password to your new user and assign them a ‘Role’. Click ‘Add New User’ to give the user access to your site. The name and website fields provide even more information for managing your users.

Fill in the required fields on the form and create a password.

To edit an existing user click ‘All Users’ and hover over the user you would like to edit. An action menu will appear with an option to ‘Edit’ the user. The ‘Edit User’ screen has a few extra user options that are not available on the ‘Add User’ screen.  From here you can change the ‘Color Scheme’ of the dashboard the user sees when logged in, add a user bio and a ‘Nickname’ can be set changing the publicly displayed name of that user.
