I have a blog at http://www.hateonit.com that just won’t allow users to create accounts. It is hosted on godaddy and installed automatically through their hosting connection. I have 3 other blogs that work as intended and are wordpress 3 blogs as well.
The blog in question is supposed to be setup so that users can create their own accounts and are set as contributers or authors so they can post content. Problem is when set so they begin as normal users everything seems to work but that defeats the purpose cause they can only comment. When I set their default role to contributor or author it doesn’t work. They never get a password email when they register and the lost password link leads to an internal error 500 page. The host is a windows host with iis 7 and the latest mysql. I’ve tried disabling all plugins and recently uninstalling the whole thing and reinstalling a fresh copy and the fresh install has the same problem.
Also once a person creates an account I can login as admin and create their password, but that defeats the purpose as well. The idea is a site where everyone can sign up and post content and comment on each other’s content. It should be pretty automatic in such a way that I’m not administrating everything. I should just log in to view content and moderate anything that gets out of hand.
