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

Add Users

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

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

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

  1. Enter their 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 wordpress.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 complete before they are added to the site.


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 wordpress.evergreen.edu)

If the user you are trying to add does NOT already have an account at wordpress.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 wordpress.evergreen.edu
