    Has anyone experienced any installation issues w/ buddypress using yahoo’s web hosting service? Installing buddypress has been uneventful. I have not been able to get the registration page going. Figured I would try it on my godaddy server instead, everything worked fine, smh.
    I installed all the latest issues of wordpress and buddypress, 3.5.2 and 1.8. anyone can register is enabled, permalinks are set, register and activate pages are set and I logged out before clicking create an account, I might of missed a few but ultimately my registration page is still blank. If anyone has any suggestion I’d greatly appreciate it =)

    @leonardlapena Have you asked yahoo hosting tech support if you can install BuddyPress there with your current plan? In your BP in godaddy, did you check if registration works if you deactivate BuddyPress?

    thanks @mercime for the follow up. yahoo tech support has been excruciating, I have practically been on hold for 4 hours so far!! Everything works fine in godaddy, registration works. I’ve added a new user through the create an account page, received the registration email w/ password and user name info.

    im not sure if i follow you, if I deactivate BP how would registration still work? i dont mind trying it while im on hold

    @leonardlapena per your first post ….

    but ultimately my registration page is still blank. If anyone has any suggestion I’d greatly appreciate it

    hence my response to check if your WP registration works if BP is deactivated :-)

    Re BuddyPress hosted on yahoo, isn’t that shared hosting or do they have VPS already? Sorry, but not all shared hosting plans can handle BuddyPress. Many have to upgrade to VPS when traffic is highter and then later upgrade to dedicated servers for really high traffic sites. Doesn’t yahoo hosting tech support have other ways for users to contact them, like support tickets, or live chat, etc.? Better than being on hold for 4 hours :-)

    @mercime I have everything propagated over and running now. Yahoo just couldnt cut it. Thanks for the help, do you have any favorite buddypress themes?

    @leonardlapena glad you resolved the issue. Marking this topic as such.

    As for BP themes, I roll out my own BP Default Child themes. Nearly all WordPress themes are compatible with BuddyPress. Issues arise in some premium themes which have proprietary templating systems which lock in the user to the theme at times. Some of those could be resolved by the theme author, some not.
