User management in WordPress allows you to control who has access to your website and what actions they can perform. You can add new users, assign roles, and manage user permissions to ensure your site runs smoothly and securely.

How to Manage Users

  1. Add a New User:
    • Navigate to Users > Add New in the Dashboard.
      Fill in the user details, including username, email, and password.Assign a user role (e.g., Subscriber, Contributor, Author, Editor, Administrator).
    • Click Add New User.
  2. Edit User Information:
    • Go to Users > All Users.
    • Click on the user you want to edit.
    • Update the user information and click Update User.
  3. Delete a User:
    • Go to Users > All Users.
    • Hover over the user you want to delete and click Delete.
    • Choose to delete the user’s content or attribute it to another user.

How to Change Login Credentials:

  1. Change Your Password:
    • Navigate to Users > Profile.
    • Scroll down to the Account Management section.
    • Click Set New Password and enter your new password.
    • Click Update Profile.
  2. Change Another User’s Password:
    • Go to Users > All Users.
    • Click on the username of the user whose password you want to change.
    • Scroll down to the Account Management section.
    • Click Set New Password and enter the new password.
    • Click Update User.
  3. Change Your Username:
    • WordPress does not allow username changes directly from the dashboard. To change a username, you need to create a new user with the desired username and assign the appropriate role and permissions. After transferring content if necessary, you can delete the old user account.

Managing users and changing login credentials helps maintain the security and functionality of your WordPress site, ensuring that only authorized individuals have access and that your accounts remain secure.
