What is the user role at the time of user registration?

I have a question about user role.
(1) What is the user role at the time of user registration?
(2) If user posts a listing, will user role change to contributor?
(3) Are there other times when user role change?



  1. When a person registers he/she becomes a website user and gets a dashboard, can send messages/leave reviews and so on.
  2. When users post listings - they become vendors.
  3. You can enable direct registration for vendors. In that case website, visitors can register as vendors without even posting a listing.

Thank you for your reply.
Sorry. I didn’t ask enough questions.
As a developer I am checking WordPress roles.
(Administrator, Editor, Author, Contributor and Subscriber.)

Roles and Capabilities

The reason is that the user role is synchronized with my other WordPress.
I have one site with two WordPress.
One of them is Hivepress.


HivePress doesn’t create/register custom user roles. For example, users who add listings will be considered contributors and so on.

I understood this.
Thank you for your support!
