Table of Contents

If you’re the owner of a WordPress website, you may need to add new users from time to time. Adding new users can be daunting for those unfamiliar with the process, but thankfully it’s relatively simple. Read on to learn how to quickly and easily add new users to your WordPress website.

Step 1: Log in as an Administrator

In order to add a new user to your website, you must first log in as an administrator. This will give you access to the backend of your website and allow you to make changes and adjustments. Once logged in as the administrator, click on “Users” in the left-hand sidebar. This will take you to the “Users” page where all current users are listed.

Step 2: Create a New User

Once on the “Users” page, click on “Add New” at the top of the page. This will bring up a form where you can enter information about the new user. Here, you can create a username and password for them, as well as assign them roles (administrator, editor, author, contributor). You should also include their email address so they can receive notifications regarding their account status. Once all information is filled out correctly, click “Add New User” at the bottom of the page and they are good to go!

Step 3: Manage Users

Once a user is added successfully, they will appear in a list on the “Users” page along with all other existing users. From here, you can manage each user by clicking on their name or hovering over it and selecting one of several options (edit profile information or delete user). You can also search for specific users using keywords such as their name or role.


Adding new users doesn’t have to be complicated – just follow these three simple steps! Now that you know how easy it is to add new users, you’ll be able to quickly and easily customize your website with additional administrators or authors who can help keep your content fresh and updated regularly. When used properly, adding multiple users can help streamline processes that would otherwise be done manually by one person – making running your website easier than ever before!
