Using Gravity Forms User Registration Page in lieu of the BP Profile Fields

    WordPress 3.8.1
    BuddyPress 1.9.2
    GravityForms 1.8.4 with User Registration Add-on

    How to I use my Gravity Forms User Registration (“GFUR”) page as my BuddyPress (“BP”) “Register” page?

    The reason I want this functionality is that GFUR allows me use a dropdown menu to autopopulate the State and Country fields with a pre-loaded list of all states and all countries. In the BP Profile Fields for State and Country I created, however, BP does not “adopt” or pass-thru the GFUR pre-populated fields. Instead, it seems to require me to hand-key each state and each country myself. Needless to say, I prefer to have my new members interface with the GFUR-created “Register” form directly and have data entered into the GFUR form then populate the BP Registration, rather than have to key all that data in the BP-created Register form.

    So, is either there a way to just have my new members interface directly with the GFUR page or, alternatively, to “borrow” the pre-populated GFUR dropdown state and country data in the BP Register form?

    Here’s what I have done so far: (1) Created BuddyPress Profile fields using the same field names I used when I next, (2) created a Gravity Form using its User Registration add-on called, “Register.” Then I, (3) mapped each user settings and BuddyPress (meta data) profile field in the User Registration settings page, and (4) used WordPress to creat a page called “Register” and embedded the “Register” form in it. Finally, (5) in the BuddyPress page settings, I associated the WordPress “Register” page as the BuddyPress “Register” page.
