We talked about the use of WordPress plug-ins earlier. Now let’s talk about the user management part of WordPress. The user management part of WordPress includes the registration of user account, editing of user data, setting of user authority, etc. Let’s talk about it separately.
User account registration
Although many of our users use WordPress to set up and write their own blogs, the blogs set up by WordPress actually allow multiple users to jointly maintain a blog. We know that WordPress will automatically generate an admin administrator account after installation. How do the rest of users register their accounts?
There are two ways: 1. If you allow any stranger to sign up for an account, open the WordPress console, find the options, general, anyone can sign up, and select this option. In this way, a registration button will appear on your website. Any netizen can register by clicking this button. 2. If you don’t want strangers to register at will, you can add users manually through user management here.
To add users manually, you need to note that the user name, email, password and identity must be filled in, and other items can be changed by users themselves after logging in. User name and password are case sensitive, please pay attention. About identity, I will explain it in detail later.
Editing of user data
After registering users, each user can edit their own data. Click your profile to enter editing. Personal data items mainly include the following contents: name, contact information, about yourself and change password.
The name part mainly includes: user name (this item cannot be changed), first name, last name, nickname, and the name that can be displayed publicly.
Contact information mainly includes some contact information that you can fill in, such as email (required), website, aim, Yahoo IM, jabber / Google Talk, etc.
For your own, please fill in some simple self introduction.
To change the password, you can fill in a new password and change it.
In addition, at the top of the page, you can set whether to use the rich text editor. After editing this page, you can click the update profile button to update.
Setting of user rights
WordPress 2.1 series divides users into five identities from low to high scores, each of which has different permissions. According to the permissions, they are subscribers, contributors, authors, editors and administrators.
The subscriber’s permission is limited to log in the background and can edit his personal data.
In addition to the above permissions, contributors can also add new articles in the background, view existing articles, view existing comments, etc.
Compared with contributors, the author has more functions to upload attachments.
The authority of editors is a step closer, with the authority to add new articles and new pages; they can edit and delete existing articles and pages, manage upload and classification information; manage comment information; manage friendship link information, etc.
The administrator has the highest permission. All the permissions described in our tutorial are owned by the administrator. At the same time, administrators have the function of assigning permissions to other users.
