    I'm creating a blog where folks can post about tragedies in their life and was wondering how to allow folks to create new posts. They can post comments to my posts, but I can't seem to find where/how they post new topics. It's currently set up whereby I moderate the comments before they are published.

    Thank you.

    You have to setup wordpress to allow registration and set their user level to contributors.

    Thank you. How can I put the login / register information somewhere else on the page instead of the side navigation?

    You can also use the TDO Mini Forms plugin, which enables registered and even unregistered users to submit posts. Their posts go automatically into draft, and WP notifies you of their creation. The plugin info page is here.

    As far as putting the login/register links elsewhere, see this other thread that is just below yours on the forum troubleshooting index.
