How to Add a New User to your Website
This document explains how to add new or additional users to your Digital PTO website. Adding a new user is very simple. Here is how you do it.
Go to USERS > ADD NEW
Add Existing User
Add a New User
Once you click the Add New User button, that user will be sent an email with an activation link. They Must Click this Link to Activate their Account! The link is only valid for a few days, so be sure to let people know that they need to confirm as soon as they receive the message.
Email didn’t arrive? 99% of the time if an email for an account is missing it was filtered by spam software. Be sure to check your Junk and Spam folders to see it the activation email was placed in there.
Understanding User Roles:
Administrator – Somebody who has access to all the administration features
Editor – Somebody who can publish and manage posts and pages as well as manage other users’ posts, etc.
Author – Somebody who can publish and manage their own posts
Contributor – Somebody who can write and manage their posts but not publish them
Subscriber – Somebody who can only manage their profile
A Note about Email Deliveries
- Spam filters, especially strict ones for institutional/educational email addresses, block the emails from your website.
- If you don’t receive conformation emails you may need to use an alternative address.
