Adding Users - WordPress

From Help Wiki

Users accounts created at blogs.e.e can have access to multiple blogs. When adding users to your site you will need to determine if they already have a blogs.e.e wordpress account created or not.

Add Users

Login to your blog's dashboard and go to Users > Add New

Add existing users (user already has blogs.e.e account)

If you're not sure if this person already has an account created at blogs.evergreen.edu try Add Existing User

  1. Enter the evergreen email address (must be exact username@evergreen.edu)
  2. Set the role you'd like them to have for this site
  3. If they already have an account at blogs.e.e the prompt will tell you that "Invitation email sent to user. A confirmation link must be clicked for them to be added to your site."
  4. They will receive an email with a link to confirm that they must follow before they are added to the blog.


If the prompt tells you "The requested user does not exist" you will need to use the Add New User section (see below)

Add New User (user does not have an account at blogs.e.e)

If the user you are trying to add does NOT already have an account at blogs.e.e use the Add New User section

  1. Enter the Evergreen username IMPORTANT: this must be the exact username, if you enter something other their Evergreen username they will not be able to login to blogs.e.e
  2. Enter the evergreen email address (must be exact username@evergreen.edu)
    • Set the role you'd like them to have for this site
  3. They will receive an email with a link to confirm that they must follow before they are added to the blog.
