Do you want to allow people to create a new account on your WordPress website? You can completely control user registration on your website. By default, WordPress doesn’t allow your audience to register their user account themselves. But, you can change the setting and allow them to register. You can also control the new user default role. You see, WordPress is very flexible and efficient in user management. In this tutorial, we are going to learn how to manage user registration on your WordPress website.
Before we begin, please ensure that you’ve logged in as Admin. Only Admins can access to these settings.
Login to WordPress dashboard. Click on the Settings >> General menu.
You’ll reach to the General Settings page. Look for the membership option. Click on the checkbox which says ‘Anyone can register‘. (See the screenshot below as reference)
Under the Membership option, you can see the option for ‘New User Default Role‘. Choose the role that you’d like to assign to new users by default. (Remember, you can change the role of any user at any time after their registration.)
Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the ‘Save Changes‘ button.
Congratulations! You’ve allowed people to register on your WordPress website.
