    Hey,

    This is my first post here, I’ve been playing with BuddyPress for a few days now and it really is an amazing piece of work!

    I’ve got an install up and running and have been playing about with it, but the new user registration doesn’t seem to be working.

    Users complete the form, and go through the activation process in the email, but at no time are given their password in order to log in, they arnt showing up in the wordpress backend either.

    If you would like to register an account to see what I mean feel free http://www.yeahetc.com

    Any help would really be appreciated!

    Thanks, James.

    They have to fill in a password themselves and use that one, it doesn’t get send to their e-mail anymore. And it’s in the database, it’s just encrypted so that you wouldn’t recognize it.

    Add this to your functions.php. It’s written by Detective.

    function rk_signup_redirect() {
    if (strpos($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'], 'wp-signup.php') !== false ) {
    $url = 'http://domain.ext/register';
    wp_redirect($url);
    exit;
    }
    }
    add_action('init', 'rk_signup_redirect');

    Change $url = ‘http://domain.ext/register’; into your own domain.

    This’ll automatically redirect from the old signup page to the new buddypress signup page.

    Xevo, I am having the same problem. I inserted your redirect function and now get the following error message on my site homepage:

    “Fatal error: Call to undefined function add_action() in …../public_html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 3427.

    I inserted an exact copy of the code you pasted above (except that I changed domain.ext to my own domain name.

    I’m not sure why I get this error message. :(
