How can people register on my blog? (4 posts)

    I created a family blog, but no one can get on there to register. Seems I remember wordpress offering on most themes a register button so people could become a user. Do I have to manually do this myself?

    Thanks!!!

    Under settings/general in your admin area you have to allow membership

    then people can register.....if your theme doesn't seem to have a link to allow people to register or login, add the meta widget to your sidebar....

    that should do it

    Sure....also remember its a good idea in the general area to define the default role of new users....

    do you want them to be able to write articles? Or just read and be a member?
