1. Go to “Users > Add New” in the left-menu on your WordPress site.
  2. Give the account a username and email address.
  3. If you need/want, set a password, if you’re not sure, don’t.
  4. Choose the role that the user account needs. Based on the principle of least access, it’s essential that you give that user a role that has just the capabilities they need and no more. Here’s our longer article on that topic. You also might find this table in the Codex helpful.
  5. Click “Add New User”. If everything is configured correctly, the user will get an email inviting them to log in to their new account.
