Learn how to add an admin to WordPress so you can effortlessly invite our Kroxie Digital team or other professionals to work on your site. We’ll walk you through this to make our collaboration smooth and hassle-free. Let’s get started!
1. Login to WordPress Dashboard
Begin by logging into your WordPress website. Access your dashboard by going to
yourwebsite.com/wp-admin. Enter your username and password.
2. Navigate to Users
On the left-hand sidebar of your dashboard, you will find a menu. Look for the “Users” option and click on it.
3. Add New User
You’ll see an ‘Add New’ button at the top of the ‘Users’ page. Click on it to initiate the process of adding a new user.
4. Fill Out User Details
A form will appear, prompting you for details of the new user:
- Username: Type in “KroxieDigital”.
- Email: Add the email@example.com email. This is essential for password reset and notifications.
- First Name & Last Name: Optional but can help in identifying users.
- Website: An optional field to link to the user’s website or social profile.
- Password: You can use the auto-generated strong password or set a custom one. Ensure it’s a strong password for security reasons. You need to write this down or save this password to send it to our team.
- Send User Notification: Check this box if you want WordPress to send the new user an email about their account.
5. Assign Role
In the ‘Role’ dropdown, select the role as ‘Administrator’. This grants the user full access to all the administrative features.
Note: Granting admin rights gives a user full control over the website. Always trust the individual you're giving these rights to and limit the number of admins to maintain site security.
6. Add New Admin on WordPress
Once all details are filled out, click the ‘Add New User’ button at the bottom.
You should now see the new user listed in the ‘All Users’ section, confirming the successful addition of a new admin.
