How to add new user to Wordpress?

If you want to give other people access to your website you need to add new user(s). WordPress has five different user roles. They are:

  • Administrator has access to all the administration features within a single site.
  • Editor can publish and manage posts including the posts of other users.
  • Author can publish and manage their own posts.
  • Contributor can write and manage their own posts but cannot publish them.
  • Subscriber can only manage their profile.

1) Administrator user role can: write and edit Posts, create Pages, create Categories, moderate Comments, manage Plugins, manage Themes, and manage other Users, by assigning a specific role to each of the users.
2) Editor user role can: create, edit, delete and publish posts, even those belonging to other users. They also can edit and delete comments.
3) Author user role: create, edit, delete and publish their own posts. They can also upload media files.
4) Contributor user role can: edit and their own posts.
5) Subscriber user role can read all posts on the website.

To add new user:

1) Login to your wordpress website.
2) On left side, on Dashboard, hover over Users and from dropdown list click on All Users. 

3) You’ll have one user, administrator, who was created when you installed wordpress.  Administrator has the strongest role.
4) Click on Add new user button to create new user.
5) At the top of the page click on Add new button to add new user. In the Username field type the username, in this example, police1. In the email field type the users email. In the field First name and Last name, type first and last name of user. In the field Website type the website url of the user, if any, in this example, In the field Password click on the Show password button. WordPress will generate strong password. Make sure to make copy of this password to your computer and then on external hard drive or USB. Check field Send User Notification. And for the Role from dropdown menu pick one role for your new user, in this example, Editor.

6) Click on the Add new user button to create new user.

How to create child theme in wordpress

There is one main reason why I like to create child theme in Wordpress - if I make some changes in theme, for example, css or to the theme, when next update of theme comes and I update a theme, all changes will be gone. Unless I have a copy somewhere else, except on website, I would need to start over. While to keep a copy of website is good practice, it's also good practice to create a child theme.
The other reason is, whatever you have in child theme will overwrite what's in parent theme.   

Note: this child theme will be created locally - on my computer, not live website and I will be using twentyseventeen theme as an example. 

1) Go to your themes folder. Local Disk (C:) -> xampp -> htdocs -> police-dept-1 (this is the name of your database when you installed Wordpress) ->wp-content -> themes.

2) In folder themes create new folder, name it like your theme-child, in this example, twentyseventeen-child. You can name it however you want, but it's recommended this way.

        <script type="text/javascript">
            window.location.href = ""
