Adding Users

Any user that is an administrator on a website can add other users. If you do not have a current administrator to give you access to your website, then request access from IT.

Add a new user at: WordPress sidebar > Users > Add New. Fill out the e-mail and username area and let the new user know that they can now log in by adding /wp-admin to the end of the site URL and entering the user’s KUNet ID credentials in the login box.

User Roles

Administrator: An administrator has full and complete access of a website. They can publish and delete any of the content and add new users.

Editor: An editor can view, edit, publish and delete any post or page and upload files or images, but cannot add new users.

Author: An author can edit, publish and delete their posts, as well as upload files and images.

Contributor: A contributor can edit their posts but cannot publish them. When a contributor creates a post, it will need to be submitted to an administrator for review. Once a contributor’s post is approved by an administrator and published, however, it may no longer be edited by the contributor. A contributor does not have the ability to upload files or images.

Subscriber: A subscriber can only view the back end of the WordPress interface and leave comments if you require sign-in for commenting.
