I do not want to write a long and boring article, but before adding a user i just want to share the different role of user in WordPress blog.

Role of User In WordPress blog.

These are the main Role in WordPress blog.

  • Administrator
  • Contributor
  • Author
  • Editor


It is the main role of WordPress blog, so I recommend you please do not assign any one until you have completely trust on them. Administrator can do anything with your blog. They have access to change theme, delete post, add plugins and everything. It is very important role so try to take this role on your hand.


Contributor can add a post and edit their own post only but they cannot have authority to publish the post. They cannot edit any other user post. They cannot access the admin screen.


Author can add a post and they have authority to publish their own post. They can edit their own post but they have not access to edit the other user post and admin screen area.


Editor of the WordPress blog have more authority then author and contributor. They can add, publish, edit , and delete their own post.
