How ironic, I forgot to check the notify me box for my post! So I must reply…
@chouf1 and @mercime, thanks for your replies, but I think I need more specific instructions. In both cases I put the code at the bottom of the functions.php file and in both cases my site went totally blank. Where/how do I add the filter.
@chouf1, does my text need single quotes?
Thanks so much for your patience.
@mercime I tried adding the above code to functions.php (changing “Check out BuddyPress” to my own text) and it didn’t work. I just added it at the end and it appeared at the top of every page on the site. I am a novice at this. Is there someplace else I was supposed to put this? I realize BuddyPress has been upgraded since this thread was started and I have the latest version. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
@mercime Thanks for your help. The problem I had is I didn’t know which file the “create an account” would be in. But, I figured it out. It was in the sidebar.php file. I commented out (using // before the command) the offending verbiage. So, not a perfect solution. Someone could still guess how to get to the registration page, but it is not right up front.
As for the survey, I have a link from my consent documents to a survey on Survey Monkey and will put a link to the registration page at the end of that survey. Haven’t tested all of that functionality, yet, but I think it will work.
Well, for whatever reason, setting a password for the registration page didn’t work. I set a password for the registration page, but clicking “create an account” on the welcome page takes you straight to the registration page – no password requirement pops up.
So this question is still open.
Also, for some reason I am not getting notification of replies from this forum.
Thanks! I will try #3. I’ve spent hours looking at different membership plug-ins and they all seem to add complexity that I don’t want my users to have to deal with. As for #2, I am not in the least savvy with code. ; p.
Would still like to remove the words on the welcome page, so will leave this unresolved for now.
