WordPress User Roles

I often get these confused and wanted a quick how to for a self reminder.  Hopefully, this helps you too.

In order of RANK from full control to minor control is as follows:

Administrator > Editor > Author > Contributor > Follower

Follower is the same as “subscriber”.

Keywords: user, roles, subscriber, follower, author, admin, editor
