    I am now open for free guest post on my site, but I don't know how to set it for new article contribution.

    Is it "Author" or "Contributor" should I set if someone want to submit article to my site with held on my moderation?

    And what is the difference of Author and Contributor, thank you

    An Author is someone who's authorized to write specifically for your website

    A contributor would be people who sign up to your website

    These links will tell you the capabilities of each role in Wordpress:
    https://en.support.wordpress.com/user-roles/

    "Contributor" is the role you're looking for since they can't publish posts. Authors can publish their posts.

    WordPress defines what a specific user can and cannot do on your website. The Author role can write, edit and publish their own posts. They can even delete published posts. Contributors can write and edit their own posts but they can't publish them.

    Sorry, this is for example, do you know lerablog.org, i had register there, when I publish my post then we wait for the admin moderation, the post will be approve and publish, or no. So, what do you think about the setting, Author or Contributor?
