Plugins for WordPress do many  different things.  Some plugins are widgets, some you user with short codes. Just remember that you should read about what the plugin does and where you access the content of it. I try to include a video tutorial with all the WordPress plugins that I make to make it easy for my users.

    How do they Login to their Account and access the Dashboard?

    • Hi there Porschea. The dashboard for users is regulated by permissions. When they register that just gives them a simple profile on your website and gives them the ability to comment if you have that setting enabled in your dashboard. They will log into their account the same way you log in but they will not have the permissions that you have. Make sure all users are assigned the default role of “Subscriber” in your administration dashboard. I do not understand what you mean about submission packs but their info they can enter in their profile page. NOTE: Some website like mine you do not have to be a subscriber to comment but some you do.
