    This problem has been covered plentifully. I have tried all the suggestions. I cannot get the Register and Activate pages to be created. Here is what I have tried so far:

    1. Changed to a different theme (Twenty Fourteen) – apparently the BuddyPress default them has been discontinued in 1.9
    2. Changed permalinks back and forth to PostName
    3. Toggled the “Anyone can register” checkbox (saving in between) to try to create the pages

    What should I try next? Your time and help is much appreciated.

    Update: As a test I tried the MesoColumn theme which is well rated and supposed to be BuddyPress compatible. It made no difference, I cannot get the 2 pages created.

    Have you created the pages in the WP dashboard?

    My understanding is that BuddyPress is supposed to generate these pages automatically when you set “Anyone can register”

    If I create the pages manually, then I simply have a blank page – users can’t register or activate.

    I did try making them manually (and they were blank), but I removed the pages after reading that BP would automatically create the appropriate page. Did I get that wrong?

    You need both. You create the pages and BP fills them

    When I did this before, the pages were blank. I don’t know what’s changed but now they are working – so I am very happy.

    Thank you Henry for taking the time to answer. 2 sentence solution; you definitely rock! (was an easy one but take it – thanks)
