Total Beginner!! Sorry!!

    Sorry for posting this here, I have been searching around for an answer but cannot find it. I am fairly new to word press and have not used bbpress before.

    I am trying to build a website that will have a forum on for people to sign up to, comment, receive notifications, follow certain threads, that type of thing. A fairly normal forum, so I have installed bbpress on my new wordpress website, it is very basic at present but can be seen here if needed, the problem I have at the moment is that if I go to the website as a normal user, ie not logged into wordpress, then I can see a box for login with user name and password but nothing for registering as a new user. I have the option selected in general settings for anyone to register, but there is no option on the site. Do I need to install a plugin for this to work?

    Normally in a forum when you look at a thread there is a line saying something like ‘you are not logged in, to post please login or register.’ How and where do i get this statement to appear, and how do i get people to to be able to register, to be able to post.

    Will they then receive an email with their login details and a link to confirm their email address?

    Where will these email addresses be stored for my reference, do i need to create a database to store users details in?

    I can’t seem to find a guide to setting up the forum other than creating topics and threads, which I have been able to do successfully.

    Once users are registered I assume that they will then be able to create new threads?

    Thanks very much in advance for your help, sorry if I am asking questions which seem to basic.
