User roles

There are five types of users on a WordPress site. These user roles can be changed at any time by the administrator(s) of the site:

  • Administrator: User who has access to all the administration features
  • Editor: User who can publish posts, manage posts, as well as manage other people’s posts, etc.
  • Author: User who can publish and manage their own posts. This role is often assigned to students.
  • Contributor: User who can write and manage their posts but not publish posts.
  • Subscriber: User who can read comments/comment/receive newsletters on a site that is password protected.
