    Hey forum.

    Does anyone know how this is done in a good way?

    Any tips appreciated.



    I’m interested as well…

    I have this combination of plugins working on one of my website, it works just fine. in terms of registration, I set buddypress registration page to none and created some custom registration pages for PMP.



    I struggled with this for weeks. It never worked out well for me.
    I used the Register Helper add-on plugin to add custom fields to the PMPro registration. I tried the above mentioned fixes, but nothing I tried let the PMPro registration process communicate with the BuddyPress (basically, I wanted one registration page to fill out the BuddyPress profile AND the necissary PMPro info).
    Whichever way I tried it, they remained seperate. Of course, the PMPro registration process did add the user to BuddyPress, but with an empty profile, regardless of the custom fields that I added.

    FINALLY, after MANY hours of working with this, I tried s2Member. This plugin is much more involved to configure, BUT it works perfectly AND integrates well with MailChimp. So now, I not only have integration with BuddyPress (specifically the profile, although the display is a bit off), but also with Mailchimp. And, this means that I can have different mail-lists or mail-list groups within Mailchimp! Perfect 🙂

    Basically, what I am saying is that if you want a better integration, go with s2Member.

    Note: I did not pay the $300 / year for paid membership pro support (too expensive for me), maybe they would have been able to help me resolve this issue. I did scour the forum and glean every bit of info I could to solve this without paying, but to no avail. BUT, with s2Member, it is free AND only $80 one time for the Pro version of the plugin.

    Good luck!

    And, if anyone sees this and has a solution, please add. As people (I assume because I was) are still looking for a solution.



    Hi Will,

    Sorry for the post-hijack but I’ve been looking for a solution to a problem that you’ve eluded to;

    Are you saying that s2Member will allow users to register using BuddyPress, to join a buddypress group (using AND a corresponding mailchimp group, all within the same registration process?

    If so then I’d like to kiss you – I’ve been looking for a solution to this for months.
