How do I add a new admin user?

Last update: 15 December, 2016

Adding a user with administrator rights in WordPress is fairly easy. Just follow these steps:

Go to the admin panel of your WordPress website and click on Users.
Click the Add New button.
Fill out the form, set the role to Administrator, and press Add New User.

If you're creating the account for us, please DO NOT check 'Send Password?'
Example filled out form

You have now created a new administrator user.

If you want us to be able to log in to your website, please copy the link to your admin login, the username and password in your email to us. For example:

Login URL:
User: YoastSupport
Password: This2IsAVerySecurePassword

Oh, and don't forget to delete the account once your question has been answered!
