Church Website: Wordpress Menu: How to Add a New User to Your Church Website

 

 

If you ever need to add additional users to your website so that multiple people can make edits and updates, you can do so by following the steps in this guide here.

 

  1. Log into your website editor.
  2. From the dashboard, hover over the Users menu option and then select the Add New submenu item. If you are using a Sidekick theme, you will need to first select the Advanced button at the bottom left of your screen to access the WordPress menu.


  3. From the Add New User screen, fill in all of the required fields for setting up your new user account. For the Role field, be sure that you are setting the new user up with the appropriate role to meet the expected tasks of that user. If this new user is expected to make most updates and edits to the site, they will need to be assigned the Administrator role.

  4. Once you have set up all of the required fields for the new user, select the Add New User button. Unless you have deselected the Send User Notification checkbox, the new user will receive an email with the login credentials for thier new website account.



When managing or creating user accounts for your Sharefaith website, you will have the option to assign those users various WordPress roles with different levels of access and permissions. For your convenience, here is a brief description of each available role.

Administrator – Somebody who has access to all the administration features within a single site. If the user account you are managing will be doing a large portion of updates and edits to the site, they should be assigned this role.


Editor – Somebody who can publish and manage posts including the posts of other users.


Author – Somebody who can publish and manage their own posts.


Contributor – Somebody who can write and manage their own posts but cannot publish them.


Subscriber – Somebody who can only manage their profile.
