Are you starting a blog on WordPress.org where multiple users will publish posts & pages? IF so, then we’re going to show you how you can allow others to post & contribute to your blog.
WordPress allows you to add multiple users & authors as well as admins to control your blog & publish new posts & pages.
There are two ways that you can use to add multiple users to your blog.
1:- First one is you can manually add them to your blog & send them the confirmation emails.
2:- The second way is you can allow others to register on your blog by a registration form.
Now, if you’re going to add new users to your blog manually then simply go to the Users panel & then All Users.
There in the Users panel, click on Add New.
Now, add username, user Email Address, First name, Last name & other info. Then finally, choose password for the user, select the Send User Notification, choose User Role & then click on Add New User.
After filling out the form, a confirmational email will be sent to a user with the blog login link & username which then he can use to log into your blog & post new blog posts & pages.

If you want to allow users to register on your blog without adding them manually then simply go to WordPress Setting & then General.
- Enable Anyone can register
- Choose by default role for new Users
- Save the setting
Once the setting is saved & the options are enabled, simply put this URL (wp-login.php?action=register) after your domain name e.g, www.yourdomain.com/wp-login.php?action=register. Now, visit this link & you’ll get the registration form which your users can use to register on your blog.
Note: If you have changed the login URL (i.e, yourdomain.com/wp-admin) then you’ll need to use that link instead of the (wp-login.php).
