I know that this is probably starting to get boring, but I will say it again anyway: WordPress is the best website management platform available today. No matter if you have a blog, an online business, or a simple personal website where you share the latest affairs going on in your dog’s life.
Okay, if you’re using WordPress for a personal site then there’s not much you have to worry about, but when it’s a business venture of any kind then the issue of security becomes much more significant.
Not many beginner users of WordPress know this, but the platform provides a range of user roles one can use when working with their site.
The default role is Administrator – it’s the one that gets created automatically during installation. Most people simply stick to it and never bother to create any other user accounts. Big mistake, and a possible security breach point…
Feel free to read my guest post at ProBlogger to find out how to handle user roles in WordPress properly … unless of course you can’t be bothered to take care of the safety of your site and its content.
Be honest here … What’s the user role you use for publishing and editing content on your site?
