Welcome to WPBeginner and thank you for watching. In this video we’ll look at 13 free user management plugins for WordPress. If you’re managing a multi-user site, then you’ll want to check these out. The first one is the Capability Manager Enhanced plugin and this comes with a few built in user roles, it also allows you to edit the capabilities and create customized user roles for your site. #2 is WP Idle Logout this will log out a user if they are inactive for a certain amount of time. They’ll be able to log back into their session, but this helps reduce session hijacking threats by using this. The next one is the Cimy User Extra Fields and this helps you extend the profile fields and lets you add more fields during the registration point. Number four is the New User Approval plugin which lets you moderate new user registrations and lets you approve or deny new users from your admin area. Number five is Peter’s Login Redirect and it lets you redirect a user who logs into your site to a specific page. This can be based on a username, user role or capabilities. The next one we’ll look at is the user switching plugin and this lets you switch to different user account from your admin area. This comes in handy if you’re testing a multi user site features and you want to see what other roles see. Number seven is the Account Locker Lite and that lets you restrict user’s access to your site without deleting them. This is great for previous authors who no longer write for your site but who you don’t want to delete their account because posts are associated with their profile. Number eight is the WP Useronline and this shows you all currently visiting users on your site. Number nine is the Prevent Concurrent Logins and this is great for paid membership sites it will help prevent users from sharing login information. Number ten is Force Strong Passwords which will help in the security of your site. The next one is the Adminimize which lets you configure all aspects of the WordPress admin area for each user role. #12 is the User Submitted Posts which lets users submit posts to your site without giving them access to your admin area. And finally we have the Simple Local Avatars plugin and that lets users upload a photo from their profile page.

    thanks a bunch for this info. Am heading the committee (and doing most of the development) in the overhaul of my daughter's elementary school Web page from Drupal 6.* to WordPress. Great to have a head's for available free tools (public school, after all, and produced on volunteer elbow grease). Soon after launch which haplens when the old information-only site's entries are updated and organized and the twentyeleven template gets styled to taste via child theme tweeking of the stylesheets, parent class leaders, PTA members, teachers, etc. – all with requests for functionality that suits thier needs – will likely be asked to manage their own sections & info. Defintely will deploy a bunch of these recommendations. Saved for when the 2.0 build gets underway.

    Thanks for this! Can you recommend a profile plugin. I'm really looking for something which allows members to type and capture notes into the page…IDEALLY with more than just one page in the profile section so they can tab across. EG: Goals page where they track goals, and other specific note pages to keep notes as they go through my site. Thank you very much for any help!!
