@5yryu5 Have you contacted the premium theme author or posted at premium theme’s forums? We have no access to the premium theme nor are we familiar with the modifications made on the theme but the author should be able to assist you.
@mjc82in I think you still need to install http://wordpress.org/plugins/genesis-connect-for-buddypress/ for theme compatibility.
@christernet Assign the new Register and Activate pages in Settings > BuddyPress > Page as noted in http://codex.buddypress.org/getting-started/register-and-activation-pages/ ? If you already did, deactivate other plugins except BP and/or change to one of WP default themes to check what’s causing the issue.
For this i have modified /wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/bp-default/registration/register.php
@sachin550 Are you using the BP Default theme or a child theme of BP Default? If not, then you should not modify that file. Instead, create a child theme of your WP theme of choice, create a folder named
buddypressin that child theme folder and copy over https://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/browser/trunk/src/bp-templates/bp-legacy/buddypress/members/register.php following the directory structure and revise it.
How can I modify BP pages such as removing profile sidebar ??
but that doesn’t work right
@gregfielding What exactly doesn’t work right? No styles or a blank page or error? Have you checked out the articles listed at http://codex.buddypress.org/themes/theme-compatibility-1-7/?
I am using the Divi theme
@osirisravenwood last I heard, Divi was not compatible with BuddyPress. Please check at premium theme’s forums or with theme author whether this is no longer the case. To make the theme compatible, author could create a
buddypress.phpfile for theme compatibility.
is there a way i could say use the layout of a really cool buddypress theme
BuddyPress renders the BP templates in compatible WP themes for the different BP components you’ll activate. You could style those accordingly with CSS tweaks or use BP template hierarchy as explained at http://codex.buddypress.org/themes/theme-compatibility-1-7/
it was the only elway to get anyone’s attention
@porter_hughes We’re all volunteers here living in different time zones, please be patient. Closed your original post with link to this topic.
At this stage, deactivate all plugins except BuddyPress, keep on using the Twenty Thirteen theme, then try to register. If that still doesn’t work, deactivate BP then check if registration works. If registration still doesn’t work in standard WP install, please post at WP forums to resolve the issue.

I accidently deleted the path in this field in my blog settings
@alephnull Not clear why bb-config location would show up anywhere in your blog settings. Do you mean bb-config field shows up in your admin menu Settings > Forums panel instead? Did you upgrade from an older BP version?
@porter_hughes first of all, do not SHOUT in the forums by using ALL CAPS, thank you.
We need to know more about your installation in order to help you.
- Where were you installing WP? – locally or webhost (Windows/Linux/etc ?)
- If you deactivate BuddyPress, does your registration work then?
- Are you testing registration using Twenty Fourteen and only the BP plugin activated?
- Are you testing on standard WP or WP Multisite?
@dylss505 click on the “Screen Options” tab at the upper right area of your screen and check “BuddyPress” to show
@ancavreasy really depends on the scale your company is willing to engage with the customers.
If you only need forums, you do not need BuddyPress, just install bbPress plugin. For a more engaged community interaction via groups, friending, profiles, etc, then BuddyPress is your plugin.
e.g. of BP in action with some customizations
university – http://www.bpinspire.com/cuny-academic-commons/
newspaper – https://wordpress.org/showcase/my-telegraph/
@anamontaser please provide more information about your installation.
@cregy you need to install bbPress forums plugin then follow instructions http://codex.buddypress.org/getting-started/installing-group-and-sitewide-forums/
@sjonniej87 Thanks for posting back and glad you were able to resolve the issue on your own.
@ganzuelo Again, I don’t see any gap Please clear your browser cache and/other any cache you have activated for your site.
@webt89 Unfortunately, there are themes with proprietary templating systems that hijacks the loop which allows BP to be compatible with WP themes. There could still be a way around it.
2. Examples of creating a
buddypress.phpfile to customize BP pages -> http://codex.buddypress.org/themes/bp-theme-compatibility-and-the-wordpress-default-themes/
In your case though, you cannot copy over the page.php source code to your buddypress.php. What you would need to do is get the plain HTML structure of that section and replace some code with the WordPress Loop which includes the_title and the_content.
You could try asking the premium theme author for that simple
buddypress.phpfile which you need to upload to your theme folder in server or hire a developer to do so.
