Support » Everything else WordPress » How did this new user get added??

  • I am new to being a blogmaster. I had just barely set up this new blog when I got an email telling me that a new user had been set up. Which it had. No one else even knew the admin login but me. I was under the impression that by default, new users could not set themselves up (neither can I see a way to set myself up except logging in as admin).

    This new user has joined as a subscriber. How could this new user set themselves up as a subscriber? I used the default setting when setting it up.

    What site? Give a URL.

    If you’re talking about , then there’s a Register link right on the main page. Turn it off at Settings->General->”Anyone can register”.

    Yeah, that’s the one. I can’t believe I missed it. (don’t tell anyone!) I must have been searching for it after I was already logged in as admin. Thanks for pointing that out.
