    Need help allowing other people to be able to register on my blog so I can allow them to be able to add posts along with me. I know I can add them manually, but am trying to avoid that route.

    My blog is: htp://cayobuay.wordpress.com

    Thanks..

    The blog I need help with is cayobuay.wordpress.com.

    You cannot avoid that route. You will have to manually add them as contributors.

    The P2 theme can be set so that any wordpress.COM user can post on the site right from the front page of the site without having to be a contributor, but most people I know find that a handful of trolls will discover it and post all sorts of garbage if you leave it public and open to posting.

    True, thanks thesacredpath.

    Do you know if there are plans to allow for adding Authors as you can with the self hosted version anytime soon?

    We can add Authors as official users of our blogs. Please see:

    For setting up multi-author blogs this article may be helpful.

    I know your question is addressed to TSP but I want to answer it. I have not heard of such plans and find it hard to believe that anyone would support opening this blogging platform to that spammers that would result from doing that. If you need a wiki or a forum then get a wiki or a forum, there are many free providers of the same on the internet. You can register one and link to it from your blog.
