Can I share my local site?

Is it possible to give someone admin access to my local site?

Hey @inessenceva – Welcome to the community!

This is tricky. The answer is “sort-of”.

The hardest part of all this is getting a user a reliable connection to your laptop. This can be done using the Live Links button within Local, and works pretty well with the only issue being that the connection can be reset or lost if you change networks, or put the computer on standby mode.

Once the person is able to connect over Live Links, then the only other thing that needs to be done is give them a WordPress login. You can either create a new admin user for them using the typical WordPress workflow, or give them the credentials for your admin user.

Here’s a link to an article written by the Yoast team, and deals with creating a new WP user: https://kb.yoast.com/kb/how-do-i-add-a-new-admin-user/

Hope that helps clarify things, and let me know if you have any other questions!

Thanks Ben
