    Hello - Please help!!

    I am new to all of this and have my blog installed.

    If I want people (everyone other than me, the administrator) at my blog to just be able to read the blog and post comments/replies what User Role do I give them?

    Thanks!

    Do you want them to register then? Cos you could just turn on comment moderation and then have people who aren't registered post their comments. Have to say forcing people to register before posting comments will be a bit of a 'turn off' so to speak.

    You don't need to give them any role. If you don't requiure login/registering - any visitor can comment. That's the way to go.
    Requiring to register for comments: it's annoying and useless.
