How to Add a New User in WordPress

How to Add a New User in WordPress


When I create content for clients, I offer to provide that content to them in the way that suits them best. Sometimes, that is a Microsoft Word or Open Office file or a Google Doc, and other times I add the content directly to their website’s CMS; this is usually WordPress, but sometimes it’s Movable Type, Blogger or something else.

On WordPress in particular, it is betrer for the client to create a new user account for me than it is to just give me their login details. Specifically, this is a good practice for the client’s own security.

Recently, I was doing some work for a client who was not very confident with the tech side of things, so I made this video to demonstrate how to go about adding a new user to WordPress. This comes up a lot, so I figured it made sense to share it here, on the website, too.

How to Add Your Own Photography to Pinterest (Video)

I have been studying an Open University short course in film making. For my final assignment I created a tutorial video about how to use Pinterest to showcase your own photography and artwork, rather than just sharing other people’s all the time.

If you are interested, I also had to create a Behind the Scenes video for the assessment.


Forget Building Backlinks, Earn Them Instead

A broad metal chain.

There is a lot of confusion nowadays about how to build backlinks and improve search engine results, after the Google Penguin update which started to penalise sites which were linked to from disreputable or spammy websites. Getting links to your site is still important, but the way it is done has had to change dramatically.

So, catching up on the SEOMoz blog, I was really impressed with this video they have produced, called The Death of Linkbuilding and the Rebirth of Link Earning. I would really recommend watching it all the way through, as there is some great advice and information for webmasters and SEOs alike.
