User Roles

From Browser to User!

Let’s get started. Hopefully you are in your teams and have the team login information in front of you (please ask if you don’t!). Follow the instructions below to log in.

  1. Look at the menu on the right of the screen and scroll down (if necessary) and click Log In.
  2. The screen shown at the top of this page should appear.
  3. Enter the Username and Password for your team.
  4. Congratulations! You are now logged into WordPress.
  5. You can tell that you are logged in because there is a message saying “Howdy, UserName” in the top right corner of the website.

Now your team is logged in, you can start to explore WordPress as an Author (you can find out more about the different types of WordPress roles here). We will explore the Dashboard in the next section.
