[Resolved] Registration: Complete Sign Up doesn't work

  • Avatar of JanVer


    Hi guys,

    thanks for providing BuddyPress to us!

    We have just installed it and are setting it up, but encountered a problem: when pressing the “complete sign up” button, the page reloads with all fields filled out except password. We also see that there is no user created (when looking via the dashboard).

    We have found several other “Topics” relating to the same problem, but haven’t read anything that helped us yet.

    We have done following steps:
    - Deactivated all other plugins
    - Use the default BuddyPress theme
    - The “Allow anyone to register” option is set to “yes” in the admin panel.

    @janver folder where you installed BP/WP should be in lowercase. Change to

    Hi @mercime,

    thanks for your quick response !

    I can easily change the name of the folder via FTP, but how do I get all the URL’s changed as well?

    I’m not the most technical guy, so I hope there is an easy way to do this :-)

    Best regards,

    You want to go to Settings>>General

    Where it says WordPress Address (URL) and Site Address (URL) you will want to change that to reflect the lowercase folder. I recommend doing this before you change the file name via ftp or you could get locked out. If you do get locked out just change the file name back via ftp to what it was and make the change to lowercase.
