In the final section of the guide, we will take you through the process of setting the options for the User Role Editor WordPress Plugin.

Step 1) Login to the WordPress Dashboard.

Step 2) On the left-hand sidebar of the Dashboard, click on the Settings section.


Step 3) From the dropdown menu for Settings, scroll down to User Role Editor and click on that. You will be taken to the Options screen.


Step 4) The Options screen has a toolbar with four options on it. The About tab is simply about the plugins author and their website, so don’t worry about that unless you need to get in touch with them or read the FAQ page for the plugin.

The first tab are the General options, where you can show the deprecated capabilities and have them shown in human readable form (e.g. Activate Plugins instead of activate_plugins). You can also have your Admin role show up at User Role Editor.


Step 5) The Additional Modules section allows you to tick a box that will count users who do not have a role. This is useful for checking up on who doesn’t have a role and might need one, or who might need deleting altogether.


Step 6) On the Default Roles tab, you can set varied default roles for registered users, including Author, Contributor, Editor and more. This gives you options as to what permissions you give ever new subscriber or user on your site.


This concludes our guide of the User Role Editor plugin.
