Username is on the registration form twice!

  • bassibabes1


    I’ve seen that this problem crops up a lot, but I can’t seem to find a solution that works…

    I have Membership Pro 2 and BuddyPress installed. I’m using the BuddyPress registration form with extra profile fields. Currently, the registration form asks for the Username and Name (display name in BP terms). Obviously, this is really confusing for new members when they’re registering so I need to remove one of these. I’ve tested it out and the WP Username is the one that seems to be used throughout the site, so it would be good just to hide/remove the BP Name. I can hide the field with CSS, but then there is an error and the form won’t submit due to the missing field.

    Do I just need to find the code to allow the form to be submitted without this required field?

    I’ve seen people use the two plugins:

    BuddyPress Usernames Only

    BP XProfile WordPress User Sync

    But I can’t see how these can work with this particular issue?

    Any help is appreciated.
