@hornet1968 if you’re using a WP theme, you also need to install/activate the BP Template Pack plugin and go through Appearance > BP compatibility process. We have a list of “template-packed” WP theme near the bottom of this page https://codex.buddypress.org/theme-development/wordpress-to-buddypress-theme/
@mercime, I am using the standard default template and have gone into the general settings of wordpress and checked the box for anyone to be a subscriber. Still nothing.
AND if I associate the register and activate pages with another page, the original tabs show themselves, still don’t work and the new pages are invisible.
So you’re using bp-default theme. If you went through the Installation Wizard after activating BuddyPress, the Register and Activate pages (along with other BP pages) would have been auto-created, and the uri would have been yoursite.com/register if WP/BP are installed in main domain.
If you associate the Register and Activate with pages you’ve previously created e.g. “Join Us” and “Activate Now”, then your url’s would be yoursite.com/join-us/ and yousite.com/activate-now respectively.
When you say the new pages are invisible, do you mean you get a blank white page in browser?
