    Create a template overload of this file:

    And carefully adjust it to your needs.




    I have the same query and did as instructed- created a buddypress folder in my child them, pasted the registration.php file, and made the changes there. However the changes do not render.

    Do I have to do something else with the original register.php page in order for this to work?

    Thank you!



    Hi @shughesd,

    for clarification, the first topic author mentionned Trying to find where to edit the text above the fields.
    Are you looking for the exact same thing ?
    Is register.php in the right folder ? /child/buddypress/members/register.php ?

    The only text above the fields when registration is allowed is
    Registering for this site is easy. Just fill in the fields below, and we\’ll get a new account set up for you in no time.

    You have 2 options to edit/modify this string:
    – using the language file if you only want to change the text.
    – modify it in register.php if you want to change the HTML tag (by default it’s <p>)

    Other text above fields is the field title.
    This can be changed in fields admin. Dashboard > Users > Profile Fields. Edit the field and change the title to your need.

    And finally, which doesn’t need any alteration of a template or language file, you can use one of the 30 action hooks existing in register.php

    You can write a function and hook it to the placeholder of your choice. To do this, you add the below functions to bp-custom.php

    Add a welcome message at the top of the registration page, above Registering for this site.
    And another one below it.

    function my_custom_register_msg_title() {
    echo '<h2>Welcome on my site !</h2>';
    add_action( 'bp_before_register_page', 'my_custom_register_msg_title' );
    function my_custom_register_message() {
    echo '<p>Thank you for registering.</p>';
    add_action( 'bp_before_account_details_fields', 'my_custom_register_message' );

    In hope it helps you to understand the principle of operation on templates.



    Love to comment on Google it.
