Sometimes, you need to give someone administrator access to your site to help you implement something new or fix an issue that happened suddenly. In that case, creating a new administrator in WordPress is best.

You can follow the current guide and create a permanent administrator account or give temporary administrator access.

Here is how you can do that super fast:

Steps to take

The form speaks for itself. You can fill in your users’ data.

Make sure that the ‘Role’ is set to ‘Administrator’

I hope the guide helped you create a new administrator account in WordPress.
