Managing users in WordPress
If we need to remove a user or change a role, we can edit the user's profile.
  1. Log in to WordPress (yourdomain.com/wp-admin).
  2. Click Users > All Users.
  3. Hover over the Username and click Edit or Delete.

Adding an Existing User​
  1. Go to Users > Add New in the Site Admin dashboard.
  2. For an existing user add their username or email address attached to that username, select their role and click Add Existing User.
Notes: If you choose to Delete a user, you must choose whether to delete all of their content (pages, posts, images, etc), or to attribute it to another user. If you choose to delete their content, it will no longer display on the site!

For both existing and new users they will be sent an invitation email and they must click the confirmation link before they’re added as a user to the site.

When using Add New Users as a Super Admin user select “Add the user without sending them a confirmation email” – this adds the users to the site without them needing to click on the link in the confirmation email.
