Add a User to a WordPress Site

Faculty, staff and students must log in to with their St. Lawrence network credentials at least once to activate their account. Once a user has logged in, they can be added as subscribers, contributors, or authors to any site

For faculty using WordPress in their teaching, set aside class time to:

  • Allow students to log in thereby activating their account and allowing them to be added to your class site
  • Provide an overview on how to create a post

Consider scheduling a workshop with an Educational Technologist who can come to class and provide basic or advanced training. Submit a service request, or Contact the ODY Service Desk to arrange for a training.
