A role dictates the tasks that users can perform within a group of responsibilities.
Default roles in WordPress comprise Administrator, Editor, Author, Contributor, and Subscriber. Each role entails a set of actions known as “capabilities” in WordPress. The terms “permission” and “user rights” are synonymous with “capability.”
To maintain site functionality and security, user rights must be limited according to user involvement.
The Subscriber Role
This role holds the fewest permissions. For instance, a club member would access parts of the site hidden from unregistered visitors. Subscribers can only modify their profile page.
The Contributor role
Contributors can write posts but lack publishing control. Their written content is submitted to users with higher rights for proofreading and publication decisions.
Once online, articles by contributors can’t be altered. They can only read comments on their posts without moderation rights.
The Author role
Authors can publish posts without approval, add files, and enrich content with images. They can edit and delete their own publications.
However, they cannot alter other users’ posts or publications. Authors can moderate comments on their articles.
The Editor role
Editors manage categories and tags, i.e., they can add, modify, and delete them. Complete comment management is also possible, including validation, moderation, and deletion. The editor role corresponds to that of an editor-in-chief.
The Administrator role
Automatically created upon initial site administration login, this role grants full site control, from theme and plugin installation to site settings configuration. Reserved for individuals requiring comprehensive site access, the administrator role should be carefully managed for security.
