Support » Fixing WordPress » WordPress registration and subscriber plugin…

  • Hi, I just added a plugin for subscribers. I noticed there is already a thing for users to register, I believe it is a wordpress login for the blogs, but not for my website… Can someone please explain the difference between these two? Also, is there a way I can stop the registration, and just make the subscribers for my newsletter able to post on my blogs… I am not sure if I am explaining this right, but it seems to be a common thing. (the original registration thing)

    Hi heartcenter333 yes WP has the ability for people to sign up on your site so that they will then be allowed to post comments etc. Now if you can get by with giving your users the ability to simply leave comments on your blog then you would not require any type of plugin. For this just go to:

    Settings > Discussion

    and you will notice an array of options there to do what you require.

    I also notice on your main page on the right at the bottom you have the “Meta” activated on your sidebar. This is a widget function that can be edited or removed entirely at:

    Appearance > Widgets > Then you would look for “Meta” on the right side.

    *NOTE: If you set up your blog so that “Anyone can post a comment” without any type of captcha or anything you will likely be bombarded with spam within about 2 weeks. This is why many people would use a plugin with these types of features.

    I hope that helps.

    Yes, Thank you for your reply… is there a way I can just by pass the original register thing for commenting on a wordpress site? Meaning I have installed a plugin for newsletters, it lets people subscribe to my site. I still have where people have to register under the original WP design for commenting… I really don’t need both. I would like to allow people that subscribe (the plugin for newsletters) to be able to post comments, and not even use the original set up… 🙂

    Could you please tell me what plugin you are using? I will install it and have a look for you.

    Sure thing!!! it’s the one called “newsletter”

    Thanks for helping me…

    I just want to make it the simplest way for subscribers. Or maybe there is another plugin or another way to have people join or subscribe my site, as well as be able to post. 🙂 I’m still trying to figure everything out. I figure it will just click to me sometime, just what is needed if nothing else.

    That link didn’t work right… it is called “newsletter version 3.5.9”

    The second link works right…
