Buddypress Static page automatically sets to Members page

    Hello please I need help.

    I am running buddypress on my windows xp and for localhost I am using wampserver 2.2. I downloaded wordpress 3.5.1 and buddypress 1.8.1 .

    When I installed WORDPRESS on my localhost using WAMP it worked perfectly, I was able to configure the static page but when I installed BUDDYPRESS and configured the static page to register, it would automatically set to Members.

    I have searched everywhere for a solution but find none, I even downloaded the XAMP (1.8.2 for Windows XP) to use as a Localhost instead of WAMP but I encountered the same problem.

    Please I need help urgently.

    Thank you

    You wouldn’t want to set your primary static page to ‘register’ as when logged in you’ll experience just what you’re seeing, the register page is a logged out page view. You need to re-think what you’re trying to achieve with template display, most likely you want a custom home page that checks for logged in/out states and fetches content appropriately.

    N.B On volunteer help forums ‘Urgent’ is a word best not used ;)

    @modemlooper and @hugo, thank you. I had created a static front page to welcome and then created a link to register but it still would not work. Please what am I doing wrong. Thanks for the caution hugo

    Ok, I think I may have gotten it, I have set the “anyone can register” and then created a hyperlink to the correct url and then set the permalinks correctly. It works.

    Thanks guys

    Hello shubh14, not really, but I am trying to develop an e-health website on localhost for a school project which would have administrators, nurses, doctors and patients. Thank you
