How to create a WordPress user

If you need to create a new user no matter which type you will have to click “Users” in the WordPress menu.  Now click the “Add New” button.

You are now ready to add a new user and have to fill in a some fields.

1: Username

This is a required field. The username can be displayed on your website when the user creates a post og leaves a comment.

2: Email

This is also a required field. If the user needs to reset their password this would be the email they can use to retrieve it. Make sure the email is in use

3: First Name

This is not a required field but could be useful if you want to display user information on your website.

4: Last Name

The same as the first name. It is not required but can be used to show personal information on the website.

5: Website

Also not required but can be used to display on the website.

6: Language

Select a language. This controls the language of the users dashboard. This option makes it possible for different users to have different languages when using WordPress.

7: Password

You can either generate a user password or select a password for the specific user. Note that the user can change the password later on at any time. Be sure to select a nice and strong password to prevent accounts from being stolen or hacked.

8: Send user notification

Select if the user you are about to create should receive a email notification about their new account. In such case the user will be able to change their password immediately as they don’t know the password that you selected.

9: Role

Select a default role for the user. You will find roles such as subscriber, contributor, author, editor and administrator. Depending on which role you select the user will have different access levels to your WordPress dashboard. Administrator is of course the highest level with full access while subscriber has the lowest access level.

You are now done and can click the “Add New User” button
