    How can I use the default login and registration pages instead of the buddypress ones.

    I have the same question, about to install wordpress and buddypress, but saw this and also only want one login and user account for people to sign up with. I’m right in that it sounds like new users would have to create one account for each right now or not? TY :)

    No they don’t have to create 2 accounts. What I want is for the god awful registration page to go away and get bacl my normal wordpress login and registration page back. I have social sign ins and want to be able to use those and also a captcha for spam.

    It makes no sense do I have to create this file and then paste the code. Because there is no such file. Below is what it says on the link

    Disable BuddyPress’ registration and use WP’s instead. Paste this in /wp-content/plugins/bp-custom.php

    Please do some self help and refer to the codex. That is what it is there for!

    Well this worked lets hope no issues.

    <?php
    // hacks and mods will go here
    /**
     * Disables BuddyPress' registration process and fallsback to WordPress' one.
     */
    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'; 
        }
    ?>

    @cpagan2000 thanks SO much for coming back and posting that code! I have literally searched for hours to try and fix my problem that my site, which has been running over a year spam free, all of a sudden was getting SLAMMED with spam registrations because BuddyPress hijacked my registration page and I couldn’t figure out how to make it stop.

    For anyone else who finds this thread, you have to create the bp-custom.php file and put it in your wp-content/plugins folder (contrary to all the other information out there on the web – - SO CONFUSING!!) I tried to put in in my functions.php and it just wouldn’t work. You can find more information on customizing BuddyPress by following the link above that @bp-help posted above.

    This information should really be easily accessible. No one should ever have to search this hard to fix this type of issue. That is why I made a point to come back and thank pagan and add the missing info that I had to track down to fully understand the situation.

    I just want to share what I really think. No, none of this is clear. I don’t want to hear about “self help”. That’s total disrespect for those of us who have no experience or knowledge at ANY of this. I know NOTHING about these ignoramus code junket snippet all of that.

    And, NO, it was NOT CLEAR what place to put that code was… not even after “self help” and reading the unclear comments here and elsewhere at links and further. Thank you… I blew up my website putting it in the wrong place. Which wouldn’t be terribly frustrating… if it wasn’t for the mean-spirited “self-help” comments and all the other lack of clarity in everything that I read about it… resulting in me putting it in the wrong place.

    Just sharing… because it would be one thing to mess up and blow up my website due to instructions I could not understand because I have zero background in these files.

    It’s a learn as I go kind of thing. But, it’s salt in a wound that these remarks were made here.

    Thanks.

    Trust me… btw… if I can find a different program than BuddyPress… I will use a different program than BuddyPress with my WordPress site… because of this.

    I hope there is a different program that will work well with WordPress… cuz I don’t want to use this program now.

    Thanks ~~ got my child theme deleted off of Cpanel. (At least I “self-helped” to know to make a child theme in case this ever happened.) Deleted it, my site is back… and I don’t want to try that again… because, no, it was not clear. But my site is up.
