Re: wp-signup.php and login issues



I posted this elsewhere but it now belongs as part of this discussion: When using Buddypress, should /wp-signup.php result in an blank page or the registration form (or redirect to /register)? If the issue described here exists, how do you get the proper default buddypress behavior?


I could delete /wp-signup to remove the errors but I’d like to understand how bp and wpmu is designed to work (are there any consequences for deleting wp-signup.php?).

I know BuddyPress is using /register.php and not /wp-signup.php. But when /wp-signup.php is hit (typically by spam bots) a PHP Warning is generated. No white space outside of php closing tags in header.php. I’m not too concerned about that as I figure if it’s working as it should (no registration form), then the php warning will take care of itself (and not be generated). So what needs to change to get /wp-signup.php to result in a blank page?

PHP Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at xxxx/bp-sn-parent/header.php:3) in xxxx/wp-includes/pluggable.php on line 865

See no Warning and no Registration Form (blank page). Is this the proper default buddypress/wpmu behavior?

Here /wp-signup.php was deleted and results in a page not found:

wpmu 2.8.6 with active plugins on main bp site:

bp 1.1.3, bp-groupblog, auto group join, Group Forum Subscripton, bad behavior
