One of the best things about using WordPress to host your website is the different ways you can use it on your site.
For most sites, that means you can essentially ignore the different user roles WordPress has built into it, since you’re only ever using the site yourself as an administrator. You log in, write your posts or modify your pages, and you’re done.
However, if you have a larger site, or a membership site like Wealthy Web Writer, you might want to think about setting up some different user roles in WordPress.
Let’s take a look at the different user roles, what they do, and how you should use them for your web writing website.
User roles in WordPress
Out of the box, there are five user roles available in WordPress:
- Administrator: A user with access to all the administration features within a single site.
- Editor: A user who can publish and manage posts, including the posts of other users.
- Author: A user who can publish and manage their own posts.
- Contributor: A user who can write and manage their own posts but cannot publish them.
- Subscriber: A user who can only manage their profile.
