Adding Contributors to Your Blog

A number of different contributor roles are available as part of WordPress.

  1. From the Dashboard page, click the Users link on the left.

    Tip: If you see only icons in the left navigation menu, click the arrow at the bottom of the menu to expand your options.

  2. Click Add User.

  3. In the Username field, enter the UT EID of the user you want to add.

  4. Select an appropriate role for the user from the Role menu. Each role has specific permissions associated with it.

  5. Click Add User.

Note: Please contact the ITS Help and Service Desk for assistance if you encounter the error: user@address (userEID) is already associated with another account. All accounts (including the admin account) must have an unique email address.
