Can't find way for new users to register

  • 1. Which version of WP/MU are you running?

    WP 2.9.2, single-user

    2. Did you install WP/MU as a directory or subdomain install?

    directory

    3. If a directory install, is it in root or in a subdirectory?

    root

    4. Did you upgraded from a previous version of WP/MU? If so, from which version?

    No

    5. Was WP/MU functioning properly before installing/upgrading BuddyPress (BP)? e.g. permalinks, creating a new post, commenting.

    Yes

    6. Which version of BP are you running?

    1.2.1

    7. Did you upgraded from a previous version of BP? If so, from which version?

    No

    8. Do you have any plugins other than BuddyPress installed and activated?

    No – brand new WordPress install on my testing domain

    9. Are you using the standard BuddyPress themes or customized themes?

    I’m using the theme that comes with BuddyPress

    10. Have you modified the core files in any way?

    No.

    11. Do you have any custom functions in bp-custom.php?

    No.

    12. If running bbPress, which version? Or did your BuddyPress install come with a copy of bbPress built-in?

    No, BuddyPress installed bbPress upon my opting to add it to my site

    13. Please provide a list of any errors in your server’s log files.

    Not sure how to look that up

    14. Which company provides your hosting?

    BlueHost

    WHEW! OK, so maybe I’m really dense, so I’ve installed BuddyPress here: http://www.everybodyneedsawebsite.net

    For some reason, I only see a way to login, but I don’t see any place to register a new account if you’re a new user.

    Am I missing something?

    Thanks!

    Enable registration on your WPMU install.

    Login to the WPMU dashboard, navigate to “Site Admin > Options” and under “Allow new registrations” select anything but “Disabled”.

    Go to http://example.com/wp-admin/options-general.php (on your domain) and ensure “Anyone can register” is checked.

    Duh! Of course.

    I’m actually using a single-user version of WordPress and not MU, but I still was able to fix the issue by going to General Settings and checking the ‘Anyone can register’ box in the Membership field.

    Thanks!
