One of the pre-defined WordPress default user roles that allow users to write, edit, publish, and delete their own content on your WordPress site. They can also upload media files to their own posts, but they cannot publish them.
Authors can view comments and approve, reply, or delete them. They cannot modify pages or posts that are created by other users or have been published by other users.
The author role is one of the default user roles that come with WordPress, and it is commonly used for bloggers and content creators who need to publish content on a regular basis.
