Adding new users
Getting a WordPress user account
New user accounts are created automatically when a user logs in to WordPress using their university username and password. Any staff or student user can create their own account by visiting, http://blogs.unimelb.edu.au/account/. That’s all you need to do. The system will fetch information from your central account, but you can’t do much else until an administrator adds you to a role on a site.
Adding a user to a role
If you administer a site, you can add an existing user to a role in your site.
From your dashboard, select Users > Add New from the navigation, and enter their username, and the role, or level of permission, you want them to have.
If a user does not have an account, they have to first create their own account linked to their university username and password as instructed above.
Exceptions for non-unimelb users
Sometimes you need to collaborate with a user outside the University. They might be writing posts for you, or the site may be a collaboration between different groups. You need to request that these users be added via the web help desk.
