    I don't understand the question completely. If it's your own website then you can check it yourself from wp-admin and if you are trying to spam other's website then I think this is not the right place to ask such question.

  • @robert-hue I am not a hacker :)! I need to display programmatically a message when the registration is enabled.

You can check it very easily with the help of get_option.

Here is a simple code for checking if user registration is allowed.

if ( get_option( 'users_can_register' ) ) {

    // Your custom code or message to display if user registration is allowed.


get_option( 'users_can_register' ) returns boolean true (1) or false (0).
