    Have you enabled registrations in admin > options

    OK… where do I find “admin > options”?

    I’ve got the BuddyPress dashboard dropped down and “options” isn’t an option…

    It is a WordPress setting, under the “Settings > General” pages.

    :) I should have been more literal .

    In WP set up to run as Multi Site you have a Super Admin set of links one of which is ‘Options’ if running as single WP then that isn’t available and you need to use the Settings > General link as Paul described.

    Worth bearing in mind BP is a registration/member led application it is nothing without ability for members to sign up but traditionally WP was a single bloggers tool and probably most never allowed or wanted people to sign up to the blog but simply place comments to posts so default state is registration disabled.

    Thank you both! I found under Settings > General,

    Membership > Anyone can register

    and ticked the box. That fixed it! Holy moly I was pulling my hair out! Thank you so much!
