    Hello. I am new to BuddyPress and would like some help getting a few things figured out.

    I recently updated the newest version of BP on 06/28/09 and started setting it up. I noticed however that when I tried to create a dummy account to see how things worked out it gave me a statement which read “Registration has been disable”.

    I tried going through the backend and couldn’t find anything that would allow me to enable registration. I don’t have any widgets installed other than what came with the BP download.

    Also I am unable to create an extended profile like shown in some of the demos. It only allows me change the “base” and avatar. I can’t put birthday, location, etc.

    If anyone has any advice I would greatly appreciate it.

    The link to my site is http://www.edoberman.com

    You need to log into WPMU’s backend as site admin ( /wp-login.php), and then go to

    Site Admin > Options > Allow new registrations

    and set the options you want.

    Also I am unable to create an extended profile like shown in some of the demos. It only allows me change the “base” and avatar. I can’t put birthday, location, etc.

    To add additional profile fields, you need to navigate to the BuddyPress submenu grouping in WPMU’s backend. If BuddyPress is installed and activated, this submenu group is found at the very bottom of the menu column.

    So, go to

    BuddyPress > Profile Field Setup

    and set up the additional fields you want.

    Got it thanks. I reinstalled WPMU, must have been a bad initial install. There wasn’t a Site Admin or other drop down, now they are there. Thanks!

    Great!

    As I often say, we aim to please and sometimes we actually manage to do just that.

    Ok, I tried installing and reinstalling and I can’t get or find anywhere: Site Admin > Options > Allow new registrations

    Any other ideas?

    This is a brand new install not adding to an existing wordpress account.

    So you are not even having success installing WPMU?

    Site Admin > Options > Allow new registrations

    This menu has nothing to do with BuddyPress. WPMU must be functioning properly before installing and activating BuddyPress.

    Which version of WPMU are you attempting to install?

    I’m using bluehost.com and used their simplescripts to get it installed version 1.0.2

    I’m using bluehost.com and used their simplescripts to get it installed version 1.0.2

    I’m asking what version of WPMU, not BuddyPress.

    By the way, if you continue having issues, I’d advise avoiding using SimpleScripts. Read this entire thread for more details.
