    Registration for Wordpress

    Hi, I just installed wordpress and I've been looking to see if there is any way I can have people register so they can make blog post also. How would I do that? I'm thinking there is a widget that I can download and install that will work for me. Anyone have suggestions on one?

    Hello

    Under settings, you can set rolls for users when they register (New User Default Role). Under users, you can create users and set their role individually.

    The feature is already inbuilt. You only need to give permission. If you assign the permission of author, editor or contributor to a user, such a person will be able to post articles into the blog. however, you should be careful who you give the permission to. If left open, you will end up with SPAM posts from SPAM ROBOTS. That can be very unpleasant.
