Problem with Registering a new user

    @jonty800

    I’m having issues when registering a new user.

    When on the register form, I can type in my details and then click Register, but I am then redirected to the homepage. No account is created or activation emails or anything.

    Any ideas on what could be going wrong?
    I am running latest WP and BP.
    The ‘Anyone can register’ button is ticked.

    If you wish, you can try this out here: http://www.digiplant.org

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi @jonty800

    Can you list all of the plugins you’re using and also which theme?

    Sure, @henrywright

    It’s Ward-Pro running:

    Buddypress Sitewide activity widget
    Go Daddy Quick Setup
    WordPress Charts
    WP Error Fix

    There seems to be something interfering with the BP registration process so the task is to find out what. This unfortunately can be quite tedious but to my knowledge it’s the only way of locating the problem.

    1) Can you try using a theme such as Twenty Thirteen then test the registration process again?

    2) If the theme-change didn’t work, can you try deactivating your plugins one at a time. Each time you deactivate one, test the registration again to see if that particular plugin was causing the issue.

    It’s not clear from your post but are you logged out when you fill in the registration?

    If not then that is normal behaviour when logged in already…..

    @henrywright I’ve deactivated everything except buddypress, and then tried with other themes – the same thing happens.

    @aces – Yes, I am logged out when I try to register for a new account.

    I have also tried registering in private browsing mode – same thing.

    I tried with a clean install, in a new directory and it worked as expected.

    It definately has to be something on my end.

    Thanks for the help though :)

    Just a thought, under Settings > General > where it says ‘Membership’ make sure ‘Anyone can register’ is checked.

    Yeah, that’s selected. Something weird is going on and I’m not sure what.

    What files are involved wordpress-sided? Which ones would need to be replaced to theoretically revert changes to the login system?

    A good place to check out the BuddyPress code is on the GitHub repo. Signups are managed by the BP_Signup class.
