Adding users to your site
There are a couple of ways to add users to your WordPress site when you are using SchoolBlogs
Brand new users to SchoolsBlogs:
Have the students log into the SchoolBlogs server to create a local account and then add them as an existing user.
Teachers can log in for each of the students in their class to create the account for them and then add them as an existing user.
