How to Enable User Registration on WordPress Site

In this tutorial “How to Enable User Registration on WordPress Site” you will learn how to enable user registration on your WordPress single site.

Before Enabling User Registration on Your WordPress Site

When you install the WordPress then by default the user registration is disabled on your site therefore your site visitors can’t create user accounts on your site.

To allow visitors to create user account on your WordPress site, you should enable user registration on your WordPress site.

By registering and logging in on your site the users can use the services easily that need user authentication to use them like commenting on posts / pages etc.

You will also benefit from allowing users to resister on your site as when the user registers on your site then he provides his email address to uniquely identify him on your site. You can use that email address to send him your site updates, news and promotions etc.

By default when the user registration is not enabled on your site then the default log in screen on your site on the URL http://yoursitedomain.com/wp-login.php ( Replace yoursitedomain with your site address ) displays as following where the user registration link is not displayed.
