Register – Custom Home Theme

    My read of various posts suggests that if you are using a non-BP Home theme, you must use the traditional url/wp-signup.php for new registrations.

    Has anyone figured out how to use the classy BP register.php file with custom home themes? Perhaps some adjustment to the custom home theme’s function.php file?

    Cheers

    I’ve read that thread and have the same problem in that even though I’ve added the necessary files, I am forwarded to the wp-login page when I attempt to sign up via register.php.

    As I indicated in my first post, there appears to be a requirement to alter the functions.php file for your custom home theme (in my case P2), but I’m not sure how to do that exactly.

    I’m using trunk – r1324 and branch_2.7-r 1719 of WPMU.

    Cheers

    Scotm-

    Did you follow the instructions for custom themes at the very end of Andy’s first post here: http://buddypress.org/forums/topic.php?id=1994#post-10557 ?

    As others started the upgrade process, and had certain issues, he made changes to the instructions. Depending on when you upgraded, you may have missed this.

    I read those instructions, and i don’t see any special instructions for someone using a custom home theme in combination with the BP member theme (which I am doing). Unless I missed something, the additional instructions for custom themes assumes you are using both a custom theme for home and members.

    Actually, those instructions apply even if you have customized just the home theme or the member theme. Even though it does not explicitly say so, if you have customized your home theme, you should copy over the new functions.php file from the buddypress-home theme folder in RC2.

    There are also some changes to the code in the header.php file that you may want to make in your custom header.php file. In fact, for good measure, you should copy over any of the files from the new theme directory that you have not hacked in your custom theme.

    Finally, just in case, have you read this thread?
