[Resolved] Edit Registration page

    Hi. Using latest wordpress and buddypress release.
    What I’m trying to do seems easy enough, but no matter what I try, nothing changes. I just want to change the standard text on the registration page. “Registering for this site is easy…” etc, etc. I tried copying the folders and files to my child theme and editing them there; nothing. I tried editing the budddypress.pot file; nothing. I even tried editing every single file I found that referenced that text within the buddypress plugin files; nothing changed at all on my site.
    Yes, I cleared cache and reloaded the page many times to make sure. I feel like I’m missing something obvious here, or I’m making it more difficult than it is. Can someone point me in the right direction please.

    Thanks!

    Yes there are about 50 register.php pages in buddypress. But I think the one you need to edit is found in this path.
    root\wp-content\plugins\buddypress\bp-templates\bp-legacy\buddypress\members\register.php

    Hello. Thanks for your input. I actually tried that already. To be thorough, I tried it again and got some strange results.

    When I edit that file, I changed it to say this: “Registering for free on mywebsite.com gives you the ability to make friends, save game scores and stats, earn medals and points, level up, participate in exclusive GameSpank contests and more. Registering is easy and free. Just fill in the fields below, and we’ll get a new account set up for you in no time.”

    Putting it that way creates an error message that says something about an unexpected “||” (t_string) in blah blah line 22″ The “||” could have been “ll”. I can’t remember. I changed it back and it went away.
    Then I cut the text in half, to this: “Registering for free on GameSpank.net gives you the ability to make friends, save game scores and stats, earn medals and points, level up, participate in exclusive GameSpank contests and more.” And the error stayed gone. I went back and forth with it trying to recreate the error, but I see no rhyme or reason to it, but it’s gone for now.

    But also, changing the text in that file had no effect on my register page at all, other than that error message. So I have no idea what’s going at the moment.

    Something I’m still missing?

    The register page can be seen at gamespank.net/register/

    Thanks.

    You have to use the language file to change BP wordings.

    You said you had no result with buddypress.pot. That’s normal, as this file is not the language file, but only the catalog which contains all strings you could translate or modify to your need.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I actually figured out why nothing was changing on my end. As dumb as it sounds, it was the caching plugin on my site. I disabled it and reloaded the page and boom, fixed. Very frustrating, especially since I cleared my wordpress cache and my browser cache multiple times. Who woulda thunk.

    Thanks.

    Hello

    Not sure where this question fits. If I go to login through the Buddypress login dashboard and only enter my user name then login, I’m taken to the WordPress login page. Is there a way to take me to keep me on the buddypress login page with an error message?

    Equally is there a function for ‘forgotten password’ without going through the WordPress login page?
