Register and Activate pages redirect to homepage

  • paulio



    I’m just getting going with setting up a WordPress site. I have current version of WP, current version of BuddyPress, and the Twenty Seventeen theme in use.

    Under Buddypress settings’ pages tab hovering over the Register and Activate ‘View’ buttons shows what looks like the correct url, but when, for example, I click on the ‘View’ Register page button that url appears in the address bar, but then changes to the homepage url.

    I have added Login, Logout, and Register Buddypress items to the default menu under the theme customisation settings, but only the Login or Logout menu items show.

    Does anyone have any idea what’s going on please?

    Many thanks.

    It is an expected behaviour. Since you are logged in to the site you can not see the Register/Activation page.

    Please try opening the link in a new browser or incognito mode where you are not logged in to that site and they will open.
    Hope it clarifies.




    Hi Brajesh

    Sorry, when I said ‘only the Login or Logout menu items show’ I thought it would be apparent that I meant that the Register link doesn’t appear on the menu whether I’m logged out or in.

    So, to be clear, I have added ‘Login’ and ‘Register’ to the default menu from the ‘Logged out’ Buddypress section, and ‘Logout’ to the default menu from the ‘Logged in’ Buddypress section.

    When I am logged in ‘Logout’ shows in the menu.

    When I am logged out ‘Register’ does not appear in the menu, only ‘Login’ does.
    As they were both added to the same menu from the same section of the ‘Add to menu’ options this can’t be expected behaviour surely.

    Many thanks
