Adding Multiple Roles to a User

By default, there are five users roles in WordPress. Everyone with an account on your site will be placed into one of these five roles: Subscriber, Contributor, Author, Editor, Administrator.

It is possible to place users into multiple roles thanks to the PublishPress Capabilities plugin.

  • Install the PublishPress Capabilities plugin.
  • Go to the “Users” link in your WordPress admin menu.
  • Either edit an existing users or create new user.
  • The “Role” field will now be able to accept more than one choice:
Multiple Roles
