    Hi –
    I went in and changed the text on the registration page on registration.php file found here…

    bp-themes/bp-default/registration/registration.php

    I’ve saved it but when I login to the site and go to the register page, it’s still the old text.

    Can someone tell me what I’m doing wrong?

    Here’s what I changed

    you can find the website page here:

    http://www.themandalaproject.net/register-2/

    Thank you!
    Christine

    Hmm I copy and pasted the code but it didn’t show up – let me try again.

    Ok – it’s still not showing up – I guess before I get help if someone could tell me how to insert the code from the page so I can show you what I did?

    Signed…
    I know enough but not enough newbie :-(

    Ok – there’s what I changed – the text that starts with ‘Please…’ I put it into an image.

    Is your theme a child theme of bp-default?

    If not, try copying `/plugins/buddypress/bp-templates/bp-legacy/buddypress/members/register.php` to your theme.

    Make sure the directory structure stays the same.

    So you should copy the template to:

    `wp-content/themes/YOUR-THEME/buddypress/members/register.php`

    Then open `register.php` in your editor and make your changes.

    See if that works.

    Hi r-a-y

    Thank you for helping me!

    I followed what you said – I had to make a folder for Buddy Press in my theme’s folder

    so it looks like this
    `/themandalaproject/wp-content/themes/d5-design-extend/buddypress/members/register.php
    `
    And I made the edits to the text in my editor.

    But when I go to the page now it is just blank – the text is gone and the registration fields are gone.

    What is in your `register.php` file?

    Can you also check your server’s error log to see what the problem is?  You can also turn `WP_DEBUG` temporarily on so you can view what the problem is:

    Thank you for all your help. I have learned so much!!!!

    I found the problem. I had written the contraction ‘aren’t’ instead of aren/t which rendered all of the code null.

    Nothing like putting it away and coming back to it with fresh eyes.

    Thank you, thank you!
