If a blog has many users or writers then it is difficult to maintain roles without an automated system for managing users. For this matter WordPress allows us to define user roles. This allows the admin or the owner of the WordPress blog to allow some functions like publishing a post or editing a post to certain users.
With Blogger.com under the permissions we can manage various users on a blog. The settings include assigning certain roles to users. This means some users can publish posts while others might have wider options which includes administration of the blog.
Now lets see how we can add and manage Users with WordPress.
In WordPress we can start by clicking on the Users options as seen below. As shown in the image we can see a list of all users on the blog.
Selecting on of the users we can change the role of that user to an Admin, Editor, Author, Contributor.
Under the Users option on the Dashboard we can see Add New. This allows the admin to create new users who can login and lookup the dashboard of WordPress blog.
Admin can also allow users to register themselves with the WordPress blog directly without the need for Admin to create new users manually. This can be done through Settings > General > Select Anyone can register.
Just like Blogger.com we can also specify roles for someone registered as a user on the blog with WordPress. We can add new users directly from the dashboard and also allot with roles.
