Add a User

To create a new user account, select User management -> Users -> Add user from the black menu bar at the top of the window. This will open an "Add user" form. Anyone can create new user accounts, but administrator approval is required for visitor-created user accounts.

Enter a new user name (under Username) and an email address corresponding to that user. All e-mails from the system will be sent to this address. The e-mail address is not made public and will only be used if the user wishes to receive a new password or wishes to receive certain news or notifications by e-mail.

Enter and confirm a new, unique password for this user.

If the new user will require the ability to author and/or edit posts and stories, select "Author" and/or "Editor" under the "Roles" list. This will determine what features are available to this user.

Finally, select "Notify user of new account" if you would like an automated message to be emailed to the new user, notifying them that they have been added.
