New User Registration Issues

WPMU 2.6.5, BuddyPress Trunk release 914

When a user tries to register for a new account via site.tld/register , they are told that they have to log in to create a new blog.

Switch to allowing new users to register blogs (from "only logged in users can create blogs")

Change History (7)

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

This is not a workaround, this is standard WPMU functionality.

  • Resolution invalid deleted
  • Status changed from closed to reopened

...but a user can't create a new (non-blog) account, if they click 'Sign Up' on the front page they are told that they have to be logged in...or should i clock this as a change request to WPMU?

Okay perhaps I am misunderstanding here. If you set to allow users to sign up for a user account but not a blog, they have to log in?

This could be the redirect bug, make sure you are using WPMU 2.6.5 or the latest 2.7 trunk. 2.7 beta 1 will not work with BuddyPress.

I'm using WPMU 2.6.5 - I'm new to WPMU so I don't want to complicate things with using 2.7 before it reaches a fairly stable state!

On Dashboard > Site Admin > Options > Allow New Registrations, if I have it set to "Only logged in users can create new blogs", users are asked to log in before they can create a new blog when they click "Sign Up", but if I set it to "Enabled. Blogs and user accounts can be created" they can create new blogs and user accounts.

Maybe it's just the error message that needs changing...

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from reopened to closed

This is correct.

If you have to be a registered member to create a new blog, then you would have to be signed in first, hence the login.

If you think this is a problem, post it over on the WPMU trac as it's not really BuddyPress related.

Thanks - that makes a lot of sense. I'll raise it as a change request with WPMU.

Keep up the good work - I love BP!
