I've done a search and noticed that this problem has come up before. I have contacted the author in hopes of getting a response, because I do like this theme (ashRetro) and have done a lot of work customizing it. Could someone look at my code to see if there's something amiss? I have my overall_header.tpl file uploaded to the correct subdirectory, and the only thing I've changed in it is the heading graphics.
Even on the original download page, I notice that there is no "register" button. Bummer.... I wonder why someone would make a theme for a forum without a register feature - am I mental?
On my admin panel, under General Configuration/Enable account activation, I have the "user" radio button selected. Should I have checked something else?
Thanks for any guidance here.
