Understanding how users work in WordPress can help you streamline your website for a variety of purposes. After all, not everyone needs access to the same tools in the backend. Today, our Marco Berrocal will demonstrate how users and permissions work.
A Beginner’s Guide to Setting Up WordPress Users
In this webinar, Marco will go over some of the most vital elements when it comes to how users are created. By understanding the basic ins and outs, you can easily manage how people interact with your site.
This includes any editors, authors, admins, and other roles you may need to assign to help you along the way.
Permissions and Roles
Permissions and roles are the most important aspect when it comes to setting up users in WordPress. Because if you give someone the wrong role or permission, it can lead to all kinds of chaos down the road.
Marco goes over how these work and the best methods for setting up your own.
How to Create Your Own Users
For the most part, creating users, permissions, and roles isn’t all that difficult. Just by changing a simple setting, you can enforce a variety of rules for specific user types.
In this webinar, you’ll learn how to easily create your own in no time at all. And you might even get a few ideas about how to set up future users.
Perhaps one of the most important things to consider is security, especially when it comes to people using your website. And I’m not just talking about someone who may intentionally break something.
I’ve seen more people break a website on accident because they didn’t know what they were doing. Assigning the correct roles and permissions can greatly reduce problems like this.
You can even install a plugin to block specific users from accessing your site.
In the video, Marco covers how security works and the best practices to keep your site safe from both intentional and accidental problems.
Plugins to Help You Along
Plugins are the lifeblood of WordPress. They can offer a slew of tools to accomplish just about anything you can think of. And yes, there are plenty of tools to manage users in WordPress.
Most include user management for both the back and front end of your website.
