How to setup users as a member before commenting? (4 posts)

    Noob here. I am trying to figure out how to make users become a member of the site before they are able to make comments on a post. Is this done through the general maintenance screens or must I install a plugin?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Dashboard > Settings > Discussion > [x]Users must be registered and logged in to comment.

    Great! Thanks.

    2nd question would then be, how do they register? Is it a widget?

    Again, your help is greatly appreciated.
