register just refreshes page

  • djsteveb


    when filling out register form it just refreshes the page – seems to fail with no error message I can see.
    How would I find out what is happening in the browser and on the server to debug?

    tried with turning off plugins and back to default theme,
    also did the list of things to check from here:
    – check the WordPress settings allows account to be created (Anyone can register checkbox needs to be active) See:
    – check your permalink settings are using one of the pretty permalink options (not plain), see this documentation page
    – check the activate and register actions are associated with a public WordPress page. You can find some inputs about it from this documentation page :

    NB: the registration and activation pages are only displayed to users who are not logged in,

    site is – it’s kind of NSFW

    1. Which version of WordPress are you running?
    2. Did you install WordPress as a directory or subdomain install?
    main directory
    6. Which version of BP are you running?
    8. Do you have any plugins other than BuddyPress installed and activated? If so, which ones?
    301 Redirects, All in One SEO, AdRotate, Error Log Monitor, Forminator Pro,
    Slide Anything – Responsive Content / HTML Slider and Carousel, Wise Chat Pro, Wordfence Security,
    WP Activity Log, Smush Pro, Query Monitor,
    9. Are you using a standard WordPress theme or customized theme?
    tried both -happens with 2021 theme, zakra, and astra

    13. If running bbPress, which version? Or did your BuddyPress install come with a copy of bbPress built-in?
    2.6.9 – it’s turned off through and still issue

    20. What BP Template Pack is activated in your installation? You will see that under Dashboard > Settings > BuddyPress – Options page.
    was on legacy, switched to neavox

    Tried with firefox and chrome and different computers..
    had a few other profile fields – then removed them from the base signup and it still fails –

    Help greatly appreciated

    There is a cors error reported in your site on registration. Your cloudflare configuration is not correct. The “SameSite” policy is not validated hence rejected.

    The issue is not related to BuddyPress and can not be corrected via code or settings in BuddyPress.



    @vibethemes – thank you so much for this info! It was driving me crazy trying all things wordpres to fix!

    my google-fu for “cloudflare “SameSite” policy” is leaving me extra confused now.. so this could be a ‘cookies’ thing?

    Still trying to read up on this to figure it out –
