I'm running into issues on my localhost where when I navigate to my registration page I get the following error message User registration is currently not allowed.

What I've tried so far:

  1. I've checked my settings menu under wp-admin/network/site-settings.php?id=1 and under Users can register I have a 1 entered.
  2. I've tried turning my plugins on and off.
  3. I've checked wp-admin/admin.php?page=bp-page-settings and all necessary pages exist and are listed.
  4. I've tried echoing wp_register('','',false); to see if that lends any clues and it just turns up blank.

This isn't the case on my other server (which I had thought was configured identically to my localhost). Registration is allowed and the echo above provides the link. No idea what's going on here and am working against a deadline (aren't we all, right?) so any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Did you enable registration on the network? wp-admin/network/settings.php

1 Answer 1


No sooner did I post than I ran across this forum thread. I had to go into Network Admin > Settings > Network Settings There, I had to select "User Accounts may be registered" in addition to entering a 1 in the site settings area. Problem solved. Maybe this helps someone else.
