Registration not working hen BuddyPress activated
My registration form for BuddyPress will not accept new users, even though registration is turned on. I can only get new users if I turn BuddyPress off.
When someone tries to make a new account, they get no feedback, but the screen goes back to the login form to presumably allow them to login, but there’s no message that an account was made.
it seems you are on a hosted WP service. Did you install your site with any integrated WP installer ?
If yes, i would recommend you to not use this service and install your WP via FTP. SO you’re sure to have a complete and latest WP. You currently on 3.4.2…
Your BP regisrer page leads to a free cooking book. That’s well, but /register/ is a path, not a book !
Also, have you set a page from within BP settings ?
Read the codex to learn how to install correctly WP+BP before using a special template as “marketplace”. Don’t know if this one is ready to use with BP anyway.
I’m on WP Engine. They’re supposed to be WP experts.
Earlier I put the site on staging platform and deactivated all the plugins and tried registering and it worked. Then, when I activated BuddyPress, registration stopped working. It has nothing to do with WPMU or social login at all. Aside from that, BuddyPress worked until the update. And apparently even though I uninstalled 1.62 something was left that is still causing an issue.
I’ll be on after Shabbat. Thanks for your help.
I had an odd experience on WP Engine as well. In my case, pushing their support team to correct the problem via the WP Engine ticket system led to a solution. Unfortunately, it took a lot of nudging before they took action.
hi curious about your situation @themightymo i also have been experiencing a rather odd bug of my own since we switched to wp engine:
i have found them to be very knowledgable over there and the service itself seems to be beyond comparison for wordpress hosting.
If it gets to the point where WP Engine can’t understand what BuddyPress is doing, please let them know — or any other web host, actually — we’re happy to work with them on any problems; firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is probably just a bug(s) in BuddyPress rather than the host; hopefully someone will be able to spend some time investigating soon.
If it is a BuddyPress bug, or if there’s something WP Engine needs from us, they know we’re ready and available to ping ideas off of. They’re good folks, and I’ve met several of the guys in person on multiple occasions.
If you can, update in this topic whatever happens, and we’ll make whatever changes we need to on our end.
My issue had to do with CAPTCHAs not loading properly. We went back and forth for a week before they finally fixed something on their end to make it work properly.
I gathered that they lock down write permissions on the server, and the settings were set incorrectly on my account. Like I said, they ultimately fixed the problem, but I was underwhelmed by their support in the sense that, initially, they said it was my fault when, in fact, it was theirs.
ok thanks for the info sounds somewhat familiar although i cannot say without doubt that it is their service to blame for my issue at this point :/
I’m going to send them a link to this thread. My site is finally getting popular and not being able to register people is a real pain in the you know where.
I am very frustrated. No matter what I do, if BuddyPress is activated registration does not work.
Lunchgirl did you ever resolve this issue. every since I upgraded to 1.6.4 the same happened to me, all the sudden my registration page just reloads and clears the password fields and the user is not added. ;(
I am having the same problem. I get a page error after user fills in details. I can register them from the Admin side, but they cant register at all.
The website encountered an error while retrieving http://www.thissabbath.com/register/. It may be down for maintenance or configured incorrectly.
Here are some suggestions:
Reload this web page later.
HTTP Error 500 (Internal Server Error): An unexpected condition was encountered while the server was attempting to fulfil the request.
BP – 1.6.4
WP – 3.5.1
I want to make it clear to those who try to make a social network using BuddyPress. look it will never work and never designed to work. what do you think is going to happen to Facebook if every one is able to open their own social network. Facebook crack down on this things and they pay buddypress to full us around. please stop this
I been trying this for years, and it never work.
LOL! GOT TROLL? Sounds like someone has watched one two many Conspiracy Theories featuring Jesse Ventura including the reptilian elite! LOL!
