To start, you want to ensure that you’re allowing new user registrations under Settings, General and checking the Anyone can register box. Also, set the default user role for what level you want your users, by default, is set to Subscriber.

With those set, when a user attempts to log into your site using your admin URL or your meta widget link, they will see the option to create a user there. In our example video, we are using user switching which we explain here:


To improve the user registration we will be using the WPForms plugin and activating the User Registration Addon. This lets you build a user registration page that you can customize for the fields and information you’re wanting to have for the registered users of your site.

WPForms allows you to customize what information a user receives once they apply as well as if it requires you to accept their registration to be able to log in. Once all of that has been set to your liking you will want to create a page for your registration to appear, add the WPForms block, and select the form that you created for your user registration. If you like, WPForms even allows you to create a custom login form to match the style of your new registration page.

    My wordpress site under Settings -> General does not have the fields "Membership" or "New Users Default Role" I have disabled all plug-ins and still cannot do anything in this tutorial. Considering cancelling WordPress and going to straight HTML and Javascript.

    11:40 Would people registering to your website see the wordpress bar at the top? If yes, is there a way to hide it? And can you register people on your website without making them register for a wordpress account, if that makes sense?

  • Abraham Abuul on November 8, 2021

    Hello and thank you for this video. I have imported a starter template site that already has registration forms for students registration and instructor registration but no login form.

    I have created a login form using Peters login but now I can not make the default registration forms work together with Peters login form. After login, there seems to be no "logout" button to enable users to log out.

    If I simply create a logout link, it only acts as redirected but the user is not logged out in reality as they can still see contents when they click on the courses page.
    Kindly help.
