In WordPress, a user’s role determines his or her site permissions, or “capabilities.” Roles specify how users can interact with the site, and which tasks they can perform. For example, some roles can moderate comments and edit or publish posts, while a subscriber can only read posts.
A user can have one of the following roles, which appear in order of greatest site access to least site access.
- Super Admin
Super Admins and Administrators can use plugins to add new roles.
