Enabling user registrations

Hi there,

I am running BuddyPress on The Social Theme and need to allow public users to signup and register for an account with our site. We would like users to be able to signup and immediately become content contributors so that their posts will be sent for moderator approval before it gets published.

Right now I have got everything installed and working properly, however, I cannot find the Sign Up link or register an account links. On my default home page at http://www.flightfolio.com, the "Sign-up here »" link also does not redirect anywhere. I have followed the instructions over at https://premium.wpmudev.org/the-buddypress-manual/letting-people-register/ but still cannot seem to get the option to allow users to register turned on. Also, I cannot find the "Super Admin" section.

Any ideas on what I may be doing wrong will be greatly appreciated :slight_smile: thanks!

    I don't have a "Network Settings" column in my admin panel, most probably because I am not running Multisite. Is installing that necessary?

    Basically what I want to achieve is to allow the public to signup for a free account, have their email validated then final moderator approval for enabling their account. Users who register with our site in such a way would be able to write posts/articles and have them sent to a moderator for approval, but they should be given the full ability to make posts (attach/upload images, videos, links, etc).

    Thanks for your swift response :slight_smile:
