First you need to enable user registration on your site. Go to Settings » General page and check ‘Any one can register’ next to Membership option. Choose ‘Author’ or ‘Contributor’ as the default user role.
Don’t forget to click on the ‘Save Changes’ button to store your changes.
Users can now register on your WordPress site by visiting the WordPress login and registration pages. You can even create custom user registration form in WordPress.
Once registered, users can login to your WordPress site and submit posts.
Problems with this method:
Many beginners find this method a bit difficult for different reasons.
For example, if you are using two step authentication on your WordPress site, then your users may find it difficult to login.
Many websites password protect WordPress admin directory. Allowing users to register and use WordPress admin area means you will have to share that password with them.
Registered users with author roles can see what other posts you have on your website.
