WordPress user roles


Administrator, Editor, Author… Can an Editor control pages? Can a Contributor delete media files? The various roles available to users of WordPress sites can be confusing.

I’ve created a simple chart outlining most of the common tasks involved in creating and maintaining a site, and showing which types of users are able to do what. Click on the image below to view it full size.


Hope this is helpful!
