Creating a level

In the admin panel on your WordPress site, navigate to User Access > Add New.

In the title field, enter a short, descriptive name for your new level. To avoid confusion with User Roles or other plugins, we recommend the naming convention title + Level. E.g. if you want to name it Subscriber, consider using Subscriber Level instead.


You should see the following tabs just below the title field, in no particular order:


Level Options

  • Extend
    If you have more than 1 level, you can add this level as an extension. This means that any restriction or capability will be inherited. Click here to read more.
  • Action
    Select whether unauthorized users should be redirected to another page/URL, or if they should see a teaser (everything before the < !–more–> tag) along with content from another page, such as a login form.
  • Duration
    Set the membership duration for users in the level. If the level is synchronized with a User Role, the duration will automatically be indefinite.
  • Level Name
    The Level name is a unique identifier that can be used to control the level with the API. A name will be generated from the level title.

    Important: Only change the name if you know what you’re doing.


You can now click Save in the upper right corner on the screen. Don’t worry, until you add any restrictions or capabilities, this level will not affect your users in any way, regardless of the options you selected before.
