Master Your Domain: User Roles & Capabilities in WordPress
User role assignments are an oft-overlooked feature of WordPress. This course takes an in-depth look at roles and capabilities and how to manipulate them for large sites with lots of users.
What you'll learn
When WordPress was just a blogging platform, only one user mattered: you, the blogger. But as WordPress has increasingly been used as a content management system for large-scale sites, a one-size-fits-all user class is bad for security and bad for the user experience. This course examines the built-in WordPress user roles and explores how to extend those and create new custom roles for different scenarios.
