Adding multiple users to WordPress

When you install WordPress initially, you will need to setup an administrative user account in order to make changes to your website.  However, you may want to add additional users to your WordPress admin for other people in your company or organization so that they can access certain areas of your website and help add new pages, blog posts and more.

How to add a new user to your WordPress website

  1. Hover over Users in the left-hand menu and click on Add New.
  2. Enter the new user’s information including their username and email address.
  3. Enter a secure password.

4. Choose the user role from the Role dropdown menu.

5. Click on the Add New User button.

Please note that if you check off the “Send the new user an email about their account” checkbox, the new user will be notified and will be able to select their own password.

As an admin user yourself, you will be able to edit this user in the future or delete their account.
