WordPress Screencast, Part 10: Users, Roles and Capabilities

In this video I’ll show you the multi-user capabilities of WordPress: how to create new users, and what capabilities the different user roles have over your WordPress site.

This feature can come in handy if you collaborate with other users: each user can create posts, but such users can be restricted from deleting other people’s posts, or change the layout and functionality of the website.

The full course is aimed at beginners and medium casuals alike. Whether you’ve been away from WordPress for a while, or if you’re a complete newbie, this is a very un-intimidating “getting started” guide.

I’ll release one episode every week on my iTunes Podcast Feed, or you can watch the full course on one convenient YouTube Playlist.

Enjoy!
