Unwanted profile/register page redirects

  • Profile photo of Xevo



    I’m having some problems on my wpmu + bp install, when I try to go to a member profile page or the register page, I get redirected to the frontpage. I’m guessing it’s something small, but really can’t figure it out. I already tried deactivating my plugins, no luck there.

    So if anyone has an idea, lemme hear it. :)


    PS. I run the latest bleeding trunk, though my theme is adapted from the 1.2 theme when it just came out. Not sure if there have been any changes/fixes about redirects since then.

    Trunk changes daily and often times a few times per day, so you’ve probably got an incomplete revision. for the log.


    i have a similar problem. when i access the registration page at http://<somehostname>/register i get a HTTP 302 response code and a redirect to the start page.

    i’m usingthe following setup:

    – buddypress 1.1.2

    – wordpress mu 2.8.6

    i’m sure, that i followed the installation instructions correctly step by step. i double checked it. the only thing i changed is the theme. however, also with the default theme activated (which i haven’t touched) the issue remains.

    does anybody have an idea, why this is?

    Found the solution for my problem (described above). I had the setting “Allow new registrations” set to “Only logged in users can create new blogs.”, which actually caused the 302 redirect. I changed the setting to “Only user account can be created.”, which in my case is the correct setup.

    My problem was solved by updating my theme with the latest buddypress default theme.

    Setting this to solved.

    How is this resolved?

    I’m using 1.1.3 and 2.8.6 with a custom theme derived from the first version of Buddypress. I can’t upgrade to the 1.2 theme, because it’s not finished yet and has too many changes vs my custom theme to deal with in one upgrade.

    Why is redirecting to the homepage? Even when I allow all registrations? How can I fix it in my custom theme?

    EDIT: It must have something to do with address rewrite. The register page returns when I set the permalinks to default. Is there a hard hack I can add to .htaccess or elsewhere forces to the right template page, overriding other permalink settings?
