Once you have opened your WordPress website to user registration, the next step is to let your users know that they can register and login on to your website. You can do so by adding a link to 'Login' and 'Register' page through the 'Meta Widget'.

To do so, go to 'Appearance > Widgets' and add the 'Meta Widget' to a desired sidebar as shown in Figure 4. The Login and Register link will appear on your website.
