In this WordPress video tutorial, I show you how to create a new user for your WordPress blog or Website. There are a number of reasons that you might want to give someone else access to your WordPress blog or website by making them a new “user”. You may want to give someone else “Administrator” privileges so that they can help you run your site, or so that they can go in and help you troubleshoot a problem on your site. (But maybe you don’t want to share your particular username and password.) You may have someone who does a “guest post” on your blog, and you want to give them Author, Editor, or Contributor privileges. For guest bloggers, Contributor role should contain sufficient rights and privileges. That’s just my suggestion. I got that advice from a great blogger Nile Flores at Blondish.net.
