Why error message, "User registration is currently not allowed." is showing in registration page?

WordPress doesn't allow to register new user by default settings. To allow user to register, go to Settings >> General page in admin section. Checked the checkbox which is saying "Anyone can register" and Save Changes.

Saving fields, forms or email notification settings in admin section displays 0

For very long form or lots of fields, you might encounter displaying 0 instead of saving, If you ever have this issue, mostly it could be max_input_vars are exceeding. To solve this problem increase max_input_vars in your .htaccess file.

php_value max_input_vars 3000

If you have suhosin installed, use following too.

php_value 3000
Version 1.2.1

Requires WordPress version: 3.7 or higher

Compatible up to: 4.7.2
