When working with WordPress, you probably have to deal with roles that you can assign to team members.

The list of roles includes administrator, author, editor, subscriber and regular member. Each has its own rights and restrictions. For example, participants can only edit their posts, while editors can edit each post.

If you want to improve control over user management, the following is a list of WordPress user management plugins that will help you change, expand or change the possibilities for different roles.

1. User Role Editor

The User Role Editor plugin adds features that let you change the rights of user roles. The plugin displays a list of rights for each role, and you can enable or disable rights for specific roles. This plugin also allows you to create a new role with its own set of rights.

With it, when someone registers on your site, the administrator ( most likely it will be you ) receives an email notification. And you can decide whether to approve or reject the registration. Approved users will receive an email in which they will be provided with credentials to access the site:
