Introduction to Users in Drupal 7
As your Drupal 7 site administrator, you have the ability to add users at any time. In a perfect world, visitors to your website would create their own user accounts and you would never have to do anything. However, you may meet someone somewhere that you want to create an account on your website for. Drupal gives you the ability to manually create new accounts and automatically email the new user their login information. Creating a new user account in Drupal is done in the dashboard.
To Create a New User in Drupal 7:
|Username||The username is required and must be unique. It may contain letters, numbers, and the characters specified in the help text below the field. Usernames are not case sensitive. The username “James” is the same as “james” in Drupal 7, and the user can log in using both.|
|E-mail address||The email is also required. It’s important that this be a valid email address for the user since Drupal uses it for various tasks. Since Drupal does does not include anything for bounced emails, it’s important you use a correct email.|
|Password||This is another required field. The password can be numbers, letters, symbols, and spaces. Keep in mind that Drupal 7 passwords cannot be all spaces though.|
|Confirm password||This is a security measure to prevent errors in typing the password.|
|Status||These are buttons to indicate whether the user’s account is active and can be used on the site.|
|Roles Section||This tab contains check boxes for each role or permission registered users and have on your website.|
|Notify user of new account||If you select this, Drupal 7 will send an email to the email address you entered in above to notify the user their account has been created|
