How to add authors and admin to blogspot site

Solution when you still can't find a trustworthy admin

But in this tutorial am going to teach you how you can make someone your admin,author,contributor or subscriber in your WordPress blog.

How to appoint new Authors in WordPress

Login your WordPress dashboard

from the dashboard selectusers option and click on invite new user

Now from the next page fill in the required forms and at the author text box section put the authors email address

Now from the role section click on author and the drop menu will appear were you can select the role of the user

you can either make them
  • Admin
  • authors
  • editors
  • contributors
  • subscriber

If you make them admin that means you have given them every roll of your site they Can add or delete anything they want they site is equal to them just like it is equal to you the owner of the blog .

So it will be advisable to only choose trustworthy people as your admin so as to save and preserve your site and stay save for security reason.

®_If you make them author in your blog they can only write new posts, publish and edit their posts, they can't edit other peoples posts. so if you need people who can just be helping you in writing posts then this role is better for them.

®_The contributors can only write posts but cannot publish the post they only write for you to publish or edit.

®_while the subscriber is mostly used especially when they have to subscribe to your site before they can drop is the lowest rank in WordPress authorship they don't have access to any part of your blog unlike other rolls.

®_Now after selecting the roll you want to make the person just click on ADD USERand invitation will be sent to them they can now access your site based on the roll you give to them.

Note you can change the roll of any other the user you add at any time you wish to and you can also remove them . next tutorial.
