WordPress - Adding users to your site

Through the Users menu you can allow editors, authors, and contributors to add content to your site.

User type breakdown

Editors:

These users can view all the posts created for your WordPress website. They can modify and publish any of these posts but can not purchase posts. Allow others to be an Editor when you want extra help curating the site, but still want to retain purchasing power.

Authors:

These users can only see posts that they are a part of. They can create posts, set a fee, and publish them, but can not purchase posts. Allow others to be an Author when you want your content creators easy access to creating posts on your site.

Contributors:

Similar to Authors, these users can only see posts that are assigned to them. They can create posts and edit the fee, but can not publish or purchase posts. Instead they have to submit edits for review. Allow others to be a Contributor when you want a third party to review a post before you or an author publishes it.

Administrators:

These users have all the access, including adding other users. Like you, they can create, publish, edit, and purchase posts. These users must have an associated Ebyline account to log into to complete post purchases.
