[Rresolved] Buddypress, S2member registration conflicts

    Hello everyone, my website is at http://www.gso-space.org. I am using WP version 3.5.1 Buddypress 1.7.1 and the free s2member plugin version 130513. My setup is using s2member for the payment (paypal) registration process including using a custom registration page setup through s2member. I added buddypress after to utilize its superb social media aspects to enhance the member experience. Documentation states the two plugins should work smoothly together and they do in almost every instance except when the member is redirected back from paypal to the s2member registration page. while testing and watching the address bar the correct s2member registration address appears then changes to the buddypress registration page address then it finds neither and gives out a 404 error page. If I deactivate the buddypress plugin the s2member registration page works just fine, turn buddypress back on and its back to a 404 error page. Is there a way to get buddypress to ignore its own registration page so that the s2member registration page works correctly while still using the other benefits of buddypress. I went into the buddypress settings and could not find anything that looked like what I am trying to do. Any help or advice would be much appreciated. Thank you.

    Dear aces,
    Thank you for your suggestion to caedaldwych. I’d like to use it too.
    My problem is that I can’t find the bp-custom.php file :(
    The path “wp-content/plugins/bp-custom.php” is incorrect.
    Of course I went to buddypress’s directory and opened all subdirectories and still no bp-custom.php
    It’s weird to ask for this type of help, but please advise me!
    Thank you so much for your time!

    Best regards,
    Prolet

    The critical piece of info left out here, since I went looking for it too, is that you have to create it yourself and place it in plugins. Not obvious at all.

    @oedipamaas, unfortunately there are many other critical points.I no longer use this plugin, because it’s structure is in conflict with all the world. I can’t use easy other theme than bp theme, all other additional plugins have to be bp related only, not to mention the fear I have to ask questions here. Most of the time all are concentrated to be irritated by wrong topics, or not telling you everything….
    Anyway, thank you very much for the information and congratulation for finding it by your self!

    Best regards,
    Polly

    @mercime – I have been reading the codex for BuddyPress, Event Manager and WordPress core. It’s just hard to keep it all straight. My only point above was that it literally would take one extra sentence when answering questions to say something like, “put it in bp-custom.php (which is a file you’ll have to create…here’s the codex link”. That’s all. OTherwise, the approach above totally worked for me too! It disabled the completely non-fuctioning registration page (I’m using a BP friendly theme, but not the default) and now I let S2 Member handle the user registration/login process. I don’t how I could ever use BP as a stand alone so there are many things in it that are clearly buggy that consistently get blamed on using any other plugin or theme. My real wish is that the wonderful devs who made BP happen make a non-buggy Pro version and make some money for themselves (while we get better docs/examples/support).
