Login – How to Enable User Registration

In this guide, we’ll show you how to enable user registration in your WordPress website. The user registration feature lets users create an account and login to your website. The default role for new users can be set in the WordPress Dashboard > Settings > General.

By default, WordPress comes with the user registration option disabled. When you wish to enable it, simply go to Settings -> General tab, and check the Anyone can register box:

WordPress Settings: User Registration

The Newspaper theme comes with an option to add a login modal. The Header login element opens the modal that is positioned on the top bar by default. This is a great tool when you have an online store or a membership website.
