User Roles

WordPress uses a concept of role, designed to give the site owner the ability to control what users can and cannot do within the site. WordPress has six pre-defined roles:

  • Administrator – somebody who has access to all the administration features within a single site.
  • 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.
