If you have a locked members area on your website, your members (users) will have to log in to see the hidden content. Follow the steps below to add a new user.
Log in and go to your Dashboard (black bar at the top of the website).
Click on Users » Add New and fill out the form.
The details in the form:
You need to provide a username, use something that is easy to remember for the user you are adding. They will need to remember the username to log in. The username is case sensitive and cannot contain accent marks (é è ö ô ó ò ü ë ê ï). You are allowed to use hyphens (-) in the username.
Next you need to enter the user’s e-mail address. Double check the e-mail address, as users will need this in order to reset their passwords, or to receive e-mail notifications. Ensure that you do not add a space at the end of the e-mail address.
Enter the person’s first name and last name. Leave the “Website” field empty.
The next item in the form is to choose a password. Click on the “Show password” button to see a generated password. You can enter any password in the block or use the pre-generated password. If you enter something like 12345, you will see a checkbox named “Confirm use of weak password”. It is recommended to use a strong password, but weak passwords are allowed. You have to send the new users’ login details, so make a note of the username and password you entered.
You will see the option to send the new user an e-mail to notify them that they were added to your website as a user. You can decide to send the notification or not.
The last option on the page is to choose the user role. Each user role comes with different capabilities or permissions. Subscriber is the least powerful role, and administrator is the most powerful role. Next to “Role”, choose a role depending on what tasks a user will be performing on your website.
Note for Live.Life.Lean online stores: select “Agent” for your new user. Do not select anything in the “Ultimate Member Role” section.
Then click on the “Add new user” button to save your settings.
