[resolved] register link doesn't display (3 posts)

    Strangest thing is happening with my meta section of my sidebar.php...

    Here's the relevant snippet:

    <ul>
      <?php wp_register(); ?>
      <li><?php wp_loginout(); ?></li>
      <?php wp_meta(); ?>
    </ul>

    Here's the problem. The register link doesn't display for site visitors who aren't logged in. If I recall correctly, doesn't the register link display for non-logged in users and not for users who are logged in?

    I'm using a non-widget aware theme, so the sidebar.php is where the meta section goes...

    Am I missing something?

    I just wanted to update this thread after I've been trying different things to get the register link to work properly.

    When I use the wp_register code, and I'm logged in, it gives me the link to the dashboard and the login/log out link. When I'm logged out, only the login link appears.

    OK...
    Sometimes I'm just not careful enough... Sometimes I'm just plain stupid. In this case, it's both...

    The reason I was having trouble is because I had not checked "anyone can register"...

    Duh.

    Sometimes I'm such a noob...
