    Using GoDaddy Hosting with the 3.8 version of word press and 1.9.1 verson of BuddyPress. Site: perfectclassmate.com

    I downloaded BuddyPress and installed it but the only thing i can see is myself logged in. After i log out i can not find anywhere for new users to register. I do have the other pages like “Activity” “Groups” and “Members” but no where to register a new account. When i go to the BP settings and go to the Pages tab at the top im not sure where im supposed to redirect the page for registration but i assumed it would automatically do it. Any ideas? Am i just stupid and missed something or what?

    Do you have registration open in your WordPress settings? Go to Admin >> Settings >> General and check “Anyone can register” to see if that fixes it.

    Also, you’ll want to assign a page for your registration page- see this codex article for more details: http://codex.buddypress.org/getting-started/register-and-activation-pages/

    Okay i made it to where anyone can register now but when i click on the “The following active buddypress componets do not have associated wordpress pages:Activate, Register” it takes me to the pages setting in the BuddyPress plugin but when i click on the register and activate dropdowns there are not pages for register or activate. Do i just need to make blank pages for them or what?

    You’ve almost got it! Yes, create a new page for registration and then go back to the BuddyPress page settings and assign the register page.

    To remove that for logged out users, go to Settings > BuddyPress > Settings. Make sure “Show the Toolbar for logged out users” is set to “No”. Then you’ll need a link somewhere for people to login/register. You can use the login widget packaged with BuddyPress 1.9+
