Registration does not work

    Hi all,

    My site,, is having registration issues pertaining to Buddypress. When Buddypress is not activated, registration works entirely. However, once activated, the register link on the log in page (accessed by clicking on the link to any of the three portals) simply redirects back to the log in, preventing new user registration.

    We have tried adding the following code as well:

    function my_disable_bp_registration() {
    remove_action( ‘bp_init’, ‘bp_core_wpsignup_redirect’ );
    remove_action( ‘bp_screens’, ‘bp_core_screen_signup’ );
    add_action( ‘bp_loaded’, ‘my_disable_bp_registration’ );

    add_filter( ‘bp_get_signup_page’, “firmasite_redirect_bp_signup_page”);
    function firmasite_redirect_bp_signup_page($page ){
    return bp_get_root_domain() . ‘/wp-signup.php';

    and subsets of it. When put into the theme’s function.php, it seemed to have no effect. When put in bp-custom.php, the registration page is activated and an email is received to activate accounts, but clicking on the activation link redirects you to the log in page, before you ever receive a password.

    We are using WordPress 3.7.1 and Buddypress version 1.8.1, and have a network installation. Please note that we do have a multisite that currently only consists of the provided subdomain (hiddencove). Expansion is planned later but we are starting off as a multi-site from the get-go. This issue existed before switching to a multisite, and exists regardless of whether Buddypress is site- or network-activated. It persists when all other themes and plugins are disabled as well. We have tried rolling back to a previous version of WordPress (3.6) to check for compatibility issues, but issues persisted and we are back at 3.8.1.

    Finally, registration is enabled in network settings, and the registration page has been set in Buddypress settings.

    Thank you ahead of time for any leads you provide!
