How to Add New Users to your Refari Website

Created by Micky, Modified on Tue, 14 May 2024 at 05:09 PM by Aaron Dye

Adding new users to your Refari WordPress site is a straightforward process, crucial for expanding your team and delegating website management tasks. Whether you're looking to bring in a new editor, author, or administrator, WordPress simplifies this process, allowing you to manage roles effectively within your site's ecosystem. Here's how to ensure a smooth addition of new users to your WordPress dashboard.


Note: Before proceeding, ensure you have Administrator access to your WordPress dashboard. This is essential as only Administrators have the permission to add new users.





Step 1: Access Your WordPress Dashboard


To start, navigate to your WordPress login page, which is typically found by adding `/wp-admin` to your site's URL (e.g., `http://www.yoursite.com/wp-admin`). Enter your login credentials to access the dashboard.

Step 2: Navigate to the Users Section

Once logged in, look for the `Users` option in the left sidebar. Clicking on `Users` will reveal a dropdown menu. Select `Add New` to begin the process of adding a new user.



Step 3: Fill Out the New User Details

You'll now be presented with the `Add New User` page. Here, you'll enter the details for the new user. It's important to fill out this information accurately:


  • Username (required): Choose a unique username for the new user. This will be their identity on your WordPress site.

  • Email (required): Enter a valid email address for the user. WordPress uses this for account notifications and password recovery.

  • First Name, Last Name, Website: These fields are optional but can help personalize the user profile.

  • Password: WordPress will generate a secure password automatically, but you have the option to create a custom password. Ensure it's strong to maintain account security.

  • Send User Notification: Select this option if you wish WordPress to send an email to the new user with their account details.

  • Role: Assign a role to the new user. Each role comes with its own set of permissions, so choose the one that best fits the user's needs on your site.




Step 4: Finalize and Add the New User

After completing the form, click the `Add New User` button at the bottom. This action creates the new user account and, if selected, sends an email notification to the new user with their login information.



Additional Tips:

  • Consider the user role carefully. Assigning someone as an Administrator gives them full access to your site, which may not always be necessary.

  • Regularly review your user list to ensure only current team members have access.
