No need for Members, Register, or Activate?

    If I have a membership plugin controlling registration, I don’t need a membership directory, and I don’t THINK I need the activation page, can I just create those pages to satisfy BuddyPress and then just make them private?

    People only need to become a user after they have become a member so no one will be signing up just for a Buddypress profile. I wasn’t sure exactly what was involved in Activation page, if that was mandatory before someone could use their profile.

    You can. In fact, if you’re sure you’ll never need them you can perform a 301 permanent redirect to ensure they never show. For example:

    function redirect_pages() {
    	if ( bp_is_register_page() || bp_is_activation_page() || bp_is_members_component() ) {
    		wp_redirect( home_url(), 301 );
    		exit();
    	}
    }
    add_action( 'template_redirect', 'redirect_pages' );

    If for some reason you find you do in fact need the activation page, then remove || bp_is_activation_page() from the above code.
