How to Connect a WP User to a Person in Your Directory

It is important that the people in your directory have WP (WordPress) user accounts for them to access your website. Entering a person into your directory does not give them a login; they must have a WordPress login linked to that address.

If a person has an entry in your directory but their entry is not linked to a WordPress user: Search for their entry in People.

Click on the first name to edit the entry.

At the bottom of the page you can choose to either add an existing WordPress user to their entry or create a new WordPress user for their entry.

If the person has an existing WordPress account, you can select it from the drop-down menu presented.

If they do not have a WordPress account, you can enter a username into the text field and a WordPress account will be created for them. They will be sent an email with their account details and a link to reset their password.

If the persona has a WordPress user (created in the backend of your website under Users) but does not have an entry in your directory: Click on Add a household under People in the Church Admin menu. While filling out the formula for adding a person, select their WordPress user from the drop-down menu. To learn more about adding people to your directory, see How to Add a Household.
