You can use the procedures from this tutorial:
You could have a different logged out menu in which you could include the register link.
@bphelp, Wow and thank you for the awesome tutorial. This is perfect! I was actually using the original site I put up as a tempsite until I had the whole Buddy Press and bbpress thing figured out. I am in the process now of building our new site which will up be and running shortly.
The information you sent me is great. The register and log-in pages are wonderful. I am probably going to have to make some changes to our WP theme as I found out just recently that they have published a bbpress child theme which works great with the original WP theme. In fact, I’ll even give them a little plug here…Mysitemyway.com has some awesome premium wordpress themes that are definitely work a “look see” by anyone that is light on WP coding and wants a truly beautiful theme! So there guys…there’s your “plug’o the day!” from LDJ! LOL
Since learning a bunch of new things playing with the old temp site, the new site is going to be formatted completely different. I owe it to everyone here for their help during this learning curve and thank you everybody for all your great advice.
I’ll put up the new url as soon as I get the stuff up and running and I know I’ll be back here to get more help as we move forward with our forum site.
Thanks again for all your help!
