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.
