    This is a free template and I can’t find add users. There’s only an “invite new”. All I need to fill in to invite is “usernames or email address, role and messages”. There’s no password or username set up as I used to do. After I sent invitation, even though clicked the accept invitation, my friend still need the username and password to log in. Why can’t she get a new username and password? Please help me!

    There’s no password or username set up as I used to do.

    So, you’re saying that previously, when you added a user, you created or included a password? Are you sure you were using WordPress.com when that happened?

    After I sent invitation, even though clicked the accept invitation, my friend still need the username and password to log in. Why can’t she get a new username and password?

    Not sure I understand you correctly. If you invite someone, you are identifying the invitee by username or email address. She can get a new username. However, if she does so you might have to send another invitation.

    See the Inviting Contributors, Followers, and Viewers support page.

    Your friend can also change the password on her account as described in the Passwords support page, but how does that have anything to do with the invitation to be a user on your site?

    I mean after I sent invitation to my friend. She has to log in with her username and password, but in the invitation, there’s no password set up. Then how can she log in? Thanks for help!

    Username accounts are required but registering blogs under them is not required.

    If the person being invited to contribute to your blog does not already have one, he or she will have to register a WordPress.COM username account. Note that he or she does not need to register a blog. There is a just a username please option. The invitees who lack username accounts select the “username only” option here: https://signup.wordpress.com/signup/?user=1

    NOTE: Note that you would have to log out and clear your browser cache https://en.support.wordpress.com/browser-issues/#clearing-your-browser-cache and cookies https://en.support.wordpress.com/browser-issues/#clearing-wordpress-com-cookies to witness the process as the invitees without accounts would experience it.

    Upon receipt of the invitation the invitee will need to click the “Accept Invitation” button in the invitation email. If the invitee is logged into their WordPress.com username account, he or she will be taken directly to your blog. If not, he or she will be taken to the log-in screen, where he or she can either log in, or can register a new WordPress.COM user account.

    Note that invitees who do create a new WordPress.com account at that point will still need to return to the invitation email and click the “Accept Invitation” button after doing so.
