Changing the role of a user on a blog

Print Friendly

When you set up a blog you have the ability to assign and control what other users can do in the blog depending on the tasks you want each user to be responsible for.

Change User Roles

1.  Go to Users > All Users  in your dashboard

2.  Select the user you want to change

3.  Click on drop down arrow next to ‘Change role to’

4.  Select new role then click Change.

Remove User

This option removes the user by deleting them from the blog.  It does not delete their username.   Another alternative is to change their role to subscriber — as a subscriber they can only edit their profile.

1.  Go to Users > All Users  in your dashboard

2.  Hover your mouse over their username and click Remove

If you want to remove multiple users from your blog then you just select each username you’d like to remove using the checkboxes, now select Remove from the Bulk Actions drop down and click Apply.
