Add Users

Ghost comes with built-in multiple user functionality, which allows you to add multiple individuals to access your blog’s admin area, as well as write and manage posts based on their permission levels. This guide will walk you through how to add a user to your Ghost blog.

Log in to your admin area

The first step is to log in to your Ghost admin area, where you can control all of your blog’s content and settings. You can find your blog admin area by going to and entering your login credentials.

Click “Team” from the admin navigation menu

This will direct you to the “User Management” area.

From this area of your blog you will be able to create, delete and edit users associated with your Ghost blog.

Click the “Invite People” button

To create a new user, click on the green “Invite People” button, located on the top-right of the user management screen.

Invite the new person to your blog

After you’ve clicked the “Invite People” button, an invitation box will appear prompting you to enter an email address and pick a user role. Each user role has access to do different things, if you aren’t sure which user role to assign to a user, checkout our overview on user roles and permission.

Once the user has been invited, your screen should populate a list of “invited” users. This list provides details about when the invitation was sent, an option to revoke the invitation as well as an option resend the invitation.

When a user receives their invitation by email, they will receive a special link that directs them to a page where they can setup their account.

After the user has successfully setup their login credentials, they will be automatically directed to the admin area of your blog.
