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 to access the new user screen.

Add Existing User


If you are adding a user that is already a member of a different Digital PTO website, you only need to enter their email address and select a roll for them since they are already in our system. This will send the user an email asking them to confirm your invitation.

Add a New User


To add a user that is not already in our network, go to the Add New User section and create a username for them, enter their email address and assign them a role.

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.
