WP - User Roles

WordPress user system controls what users can and cannot do on your website. This includes administrative tasks, writing content, approving content, plugin and theme management, and more.


Out of the box, there are five user roles available with WordPress. I am sure you are all aware of these roles; however, let us review them quickly before moving on.


The five default user roles are:


Administrator – Has access to all administrative options and features.


Editor – Can manage and publish posts. Traditionally, editors review posts submitted by contributors and then schedule them for review.


Author – Can publish their own posts when they wish.


Contributor – Can write posts but cannot publish them. Instead, they need to submit their posts for review.


Subscriber – Has basic functionality such as changing their profile and leaving comments.
