Adding Contributors to Your Blog
A number of different contributor roles are available as part of WordPress.
From the Dashboard page, click the Users link on the left.
Tip: If you see only icons in the left navigation menu, click the arrow at the bottom of the menu to expand your options.
Click Add User under the expanded Users tab.
NOTE: do not use the "Add New" button on the Users dashboard to create users.
In the Username field, enter the UT EID of the user you want to add.
Select an appropriate role for the user from the Role menu. Each role has specific permissions associated with it.
Click Add User.
Note: Please contact the ITS Help and Service Desk for assistance if you encounter the error: user@address (userEID) is already associated with another account. All accounts (including the admin account) must have an unique email address.
Note: If you receive an error stating that the user does not exist, please have them log in to the http://sites.utexas.edu/ homepage and then try once more. They do not yet have a user account for the University Blog Service and attempting to log in will create one for them.
