Newbie BuddyPress questions about registration forms and more

    Hi!

    I have a couple BuddyPress questions that I cannot seem to find answers for. I am a long time WordPress user and BP looks great.

    1.) I see where BuddyPress creates a Registration page during the install, but I cannot find a registration form. Do I have to build my own form?
    And is if possible to use WP form plugins like Formidable and Gravity? How do most BuddyPress admins handle forms?

    2.) Regarding Forums. I noticed that BuddyPress also provides an option to install either Group and Site wide forums. Are these forums the same as bbPress?

    3.) Are there any privacy options built into BuddyPress that will allow users to make their pages viewable to “Members Only” and “Public” or only certain “Member Groups”? Or do I have to use plugins for this?

    Thank you for any advice. I am happy about discovering BuddyPress. This looks like a great adventure!

    I am also a newbie and would like to know how to set up a registration page. I see the registration by BuddyPress installed in my .php core files but I don’t see a page template.

    @nicolerbencomo its located in:
    yoursite/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/bp-default/registration/register.php

    Make sure in dashboard/settings/general/membership that the box is checked beside “Anyone can register”
