WordPress User Roles
WordPress provides different user roles that can be assigned to users based on their responsibilities and access level on a website. The default user roles available in WordPress are:
- Administrator: The Administrator has full control over the website and can manage all aspects of the site, including creating and managing other user accounts.
- Editor: The Editor can create, publish, edit, and delete any posts and pages on the website, including those of other users. They can also moderate comments and manage categories and tags.
- Author: The Author can create, edit, and delete their own posts and pages, as well as upload media files. They cannot publish their own posts, but their content must be reviewed and published by an editor or administrator.
- Contributor: The Contributor can create and edit their own posts, but they cannot publish them. Instead, their content must be reviewed and published by an editor or administrator.
- Subscriber: The Subscriber can only view content on the website and manage their own user profile. They cannot create or edit any content on the website.
WordPress also allows users to create custom roles with specific capabilities using plugins or code.
