JImgroom, how did you hack the theme? I’m having the same trouble.
Well, I finally just backed up my entire wp-content folder and wiped my WPMU and BP install. I re-installed WPMU to a test database, then changed the wp-config.php file to point to my real, production database.
Everything works now. I’m moving my wp-content stuff back and checking to ensure the site is working properly. All is well.
Thanks to all for your time on this. Hopefully this log is a help to anyone else with this issue.
Thanks. I haven’t tooled around in the core code, but I’ll try your suggestion.
My site is hosted at DreamHost — nothing fancy.
I’ll post the ticket number here once I file it.
Thank you so much — I appreciate your time on this.
Last night I had the same idea and just removed all of the themes from my WPMU/BP installation, leaving only /default, and two themes I created as child themes of the BP 1.2 theme.
Unfortunately, this didn’t change anything. I confirmed in three browsers that the issue persists, and the behavior is not just being cached locally.
Should I raise a ticket in Trac at this point? I feel like we’ve exhausted all the obvious answers, so I may have found a weird bug. Short of wiping and re-installing WPMU and BP, I’m not sure how to proceed next.
One update on this: I tried renaming the register.php file to register.bak. Two results:
* going to /register still redirects home
* wp-signup.php works fine
Also tried to replace the contents of register.php with [h1]test![/h1] instead of the template code. That yielded the same result: redirects home.
The problem appears to be calling the template file, before any template interpretation happens.
I also tried to switch on WP_DEBUG, but that only threw a bunch of Warnings and Notices — no errors.
Tried that, too, figuring the same thing. Repeatedly switching back and forth between the options didn’t help.
Anyone know enough about the Buddypress theme options or WordPress MU debugging to help me figure out how to troubleshoot this? I think I’ve hit all the preliminaries, and might need to start looking at some log files.
@Tore, thanks. It occurred to me that I should remove all of the plugins from every blog. I gave that a shot for my blogs and still no joy. It could be that other users have some plugins active that I should try to deactivate, but this wasn’t an issue until upgrading to BP 1.2.
Could it be an .htaccess thing? The register link is trying to go to /wp-login.php?action=register, which is redirecting to /register. What should happen is that BP shows the registration.php file from the theme, but it’s just redirecting from /register to the root site (dailynewarker.com/).
I was kind of hoping other people would be having this issue. Perhaps there’s something wrong with my install?
I’ve been able to narrow the issue down a little bit.
* Disabling BuddyPress allows users to create accounts
* Enabling BP with the WP default theme allows users to create accounts
* Switching to the BP 1.2 theme does /not/ let users create accounts
So, it definitely seems like a BuddyPress 1.2 theme issue.
I’ve tried re-installing BuddyPress (and its default theme) and tried shutting off and re-enabling the plugin and theme: that didn’t help. Any ideas?
@emilywebber, thanks for the reply! So, I looked in my WordPress Dashboard Settings (Dashboard > Settings > General) and I don’t have a setting for allowing user registration. I think it was moved in WordPress Multi-User to this menu: Site Admin > Options, where I have these choices:
* Enabled. Blogs and user accounts can be created.
* Only user account can be created.
* Only logged in users can create new blogs.
Selecting “Enabled” or “user account can be created” doesn’t fix the issue.
@Sunset Cowboy, no that didn’t help. The BuddyPress 1.2 theme (appropriately) doesn’t show the link to users who are logged in. Logging out and clicking on the “Create New Account” link still just redirects to the homepage.
Is there something else I’m missing? Perhaps some other setting? I’m thinking of shutting off BuddyPress and trying to create a new account in just WPMU.
