WiscWeb - WordPress UW Theme - Adding a User to Your Site

This document describes the steps to follow when adding a user to your WiscWeb WordPress site

Creating an Account

Before you will be able to add a new user to your site, the user will need to create their account by going to https://wiscweb.wisc.edu/wp-admin and logging in with their NetID and password. Once they have done this, you will be able to add them to your site.

Adding a User

You must be a Site Administrator to add users to your site.

Please use the following steps to add a user:

  1. Verify the user has completed the Creating An Account section above. You will not be able to add them if they have not already logged into https://wiscweb.wisc.edu/wp-admin.
  2. Access the Dashboard for your site
  3. Click on Users to access your list of users

  4. Click on the Add Existing Button

  5. Enter the email address of the user you would like to add. This address must match the email address that shows in the Campus Directory.
  6. Select the Role you would like to assign this user
  7. Click on Add Existing User

You will see the above confirmation message. The user will receive an email that tells them they have been added to this site and asks them to confirm. Once they click on the confirm link they will be added to your site.


If you get the message that the user does not exist, please note that before you will be able to add a new user to your site, the user will need to create their account by going to https://wiscweb.wisc.edu/wp-admin and logging in with their NetID and password. Once they have done this, you will be able to add them to your site.
