Registration link disappeared (12 posts)

    I've been using Mu for a about a month, about one week ago without any big changes, the registration links dissapeared on all blogs, the main and subblogs in any theme, even in the meta widget i'm currently using, it does not appear even on the defualt meta widget or the default template.

    The odd thing is that I can still access the wp-sign-up if I enter the address, it's only the register links from the templates and meta widgets that do not appear.

    Doeas anyone know why this happened or more importantly, how to fix it?

    PD: And yes, the registrations are enabled before anyone asks. :P

    Alexmoba or anyone, can you explain a bit more in detail exactly what you did to get the register link to show? I just installed and have tried several themes and I have no register link, just log in link at

    I do have Enabled. Blogs and user accounts can be created checked.

    You said:
    "Fixed it, on edit on each blog users can register was set to blanck"

    Where exactly in the backend are you referring to?

    Regular WP themes are pretty unlikely to have a link to WPMU's register page. :)

    Check the Meta widget. In the latest codebase, the link to wp-signup is there.

    Thanks andrea_r. I went back to Edublogs Premium Homepage and the signup was there. I thought I was getting wpmu themes since I downloaded the farms big 100 (or some such name) here. Oh well, lesson learned. Thanks again.

    And btw, while I've got you. It seems these themes I've downloaded don't show the signup. I activated the meta widget on my main site, but if I change the theme I just see login. How do I set up my main page inviting people to join? I definitely don't want to use that Edublog theme. Sorry, this is my first go at wpmu. Lots of questions and lots of confusion setting in. Thanks.

    SO what you're really asking is how you can get a link to the signup page to show up automatically on every theme?

    The theme pack theme have been tested to work fine on MU. Doesn't mean they all have every bell and whistle you might want. :) Same goes for any WP theme you encounter - they all might not have everything you want on it.

    For setting up your main page, you'll have to make your own with whatever you want on it. that's what most people do (or lately, edit the Edublogs theme). The easiest way is to make a Page on your main blog called Signup. Write whatever you like and include a link to the signup page. Here's an example:

    Simple, fast easy, doesn't require theme editing and doesn;t disappear when you change themes.

    Might want to spend some time reading :)

    If you want a signup link / reminder on every single blog, you can hook into the footer of each theme and insert a link there. Although I thought maybe the ones in the theme pack did that... There may be an existing plugin for this. Check over at

    Thanks so much. Here's where I'm at. Just so you don't think I'm a slouch. I am trying to do my research. Found this:

    I've added this under <div id navbar>

  10. |
  11. <?php wp_register(' ' , ' '); ?> |
  12. <?php wp_loginout(); ?> |
  13. I know I don't need the But it still just gives me Site admin link | Site log out link.

    I thought I was on to something for a minute.

    I put this in the header.php, but I assume I could put it in the sidebar.php if I prefer. Now am I going nuts or does the code say register or what? Thanks for all help.

    Hey andrea,
    I guess I'm getting register and signup confused. I now see the signup.php file. And adding a simple link to that should do it. Not sure what that /MU_Theme_Login is for. Thanks for your help.

    The registration process is different in MU and called signup. :D

    Just so future searches don't have to run in circles too.

    Allow new registrations Disabled
    Enabled. Blogs and user accounts can be created.
    Only user account can be created.
    Only logged in users can create new blogs.

    Disable or enable registration and who or what can be registered. (Default=all)

    You can find this in Admin > Options. It's the thrird command section marked : Allow New Registrations. After I clicked on Enable, the "Register" link was there and working again.
