How do I add users to my WordPress sites?

Site administrators may add users (subscribers, authors, editors, and additional administrators) to blog sites.  To add users:

1. Login to Blogs@MIIS with your username and password.

2. Click on “Add New” in the grey site administration bar at the top of your site, then scroll down to “User.”

3.  Next type in the last name of the person you would like to add to your site.  This person should have a miis.edu username and password, or a verified Middlebury Guest Account.  The name and e-mail address will appear in your search if a verified account is available in the active directory.

4.  Select the role you want to assign to the new user: Subscriber, Author, Editor, or Administrator (keep in mind that these have increasing editing and administrative privileges.)

5.  Finally, click “Add User” to complete the process.  The users name and e-mail will appear under the search box.

6.  Rinse and repeat for each additional user.  You can also edit user access and roles in your site dashboard.
