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.
