The Contributor is a built-in user role in WordPress with limited capabilities. Users with the contributor role can write and edit their own posts, but they cannot publish them. Instead, they can only submit the posts for review by an editor or administrator.
Contributors can also edit their own profile information, but they cannot modify the site’s settings, themes, or plugins. They cannot create or delete pages, and they cannot upload files such as images or videos to the site.
The contributor role is often used for guest authors or users who need to submit content for review before it is published on the site. It is a useful role for sites that rely on a community of writers to create content, as it allows them to contribute without giving them full access to the site.
