If you’re managing a website with more than one user, you should definitely make use of WordPress’ built-in system of User Roles and Capabilities to help keep your site healthy and secure. This setup allows a site Administrator (which is a User Role) to give each additional user only the level of powers (and resulting responsibility) he or she needs. An Administrator has complete control over the WordPress installation. An Editor has many fewer powers, but still more than an Author, who in turn has more than a Contributor.
