In this talk we will cover some basic user management principals and apply those principals to WordPress. We will give you the knowledge needed to determine what to let, and more importantly not let, your users have access too.
We will talk about each of the native contributor roles that WordPress offers and what those roles mean to you and your network. We will also introduce a few key plugins that are pivotal in managing hundreds of users across thousands of blogs and will cover some common gotchas in plugin selection.
Concepts from this presentation can be applied to any size network or single site install. User management is a fundamental and important piece of any project that has more than one contributor and should never be overlooked. Join me in exploring how to make your blog secure and your contributors productive.
