Steps to manage users in WordPress:

  • To send a notification to the newly created user through email, select this checkbox.

  • If you want to define a specific role to the user then you can assign it from this dropdown.

  • In that,
  • A subscriber is a user who can only manage his/her profile.
  • A contributor is a user who can write and manage his/her posts but cannot publish them.
  • The author is a user who can create posts and manage them.
  • An Editor is a user who can create and manage posts as well as pages.

The administrator is the most powerful and authoritative user who can perform roles like:

  1. Add, edit, and delete posts.
  2. Install, edit, and delete plugins as well as themes.
  3. Manage users.
  4. Basically, the administrator has complete control over the website.
  • Now, click on Add New User.
  • As you can see the newly created user.

  • From here, you can edit or delete the user.

That’s how you can manage users in WordPress.
