With BuddyPress 1.6.1, Wordpress's Register link redirects to BuddyPress
|Reported by:||dharmen99||Owned by:||dharmen99|
After updating to BuddyPress 1.6.1 (BP is on a secondary site on a sub directory 2 site network), the WordPresss 'Register' link redirects to BuddyPress and not the the WP registration page. I updated BP from 1.5.6. WordPress is 3.4.1.
To try to find out what was happening, I installed two test sites on my server, both with virgin instals of WordPress and BP. I did not instal any additional plugins so the sites are running standard basic instals. Both sites are running WP 3.4.1. On one site I installed BP 1.6.1 and the other BP 1.5.6. (Permalinks are set to Numeric). The result you can see from these links:
The first site (test) has BP 1.6.1, the second (test2) has BP 1.5.6 The sub directory were BP is active is called 'now' in both cases. If you follow the links above and then click 'Register' (under Meta) you will find that with the first site (test), the 'Register' link will redirect to http://sannyasnews.org/test/now/blogs/create/ whereas the second site (test2) will behave correctly and redirect to http://sannyasnews.org/test2/wp-signup.php.
It is possible that this is a bug with WordPress but as it only manifested when I installed BP 1.6.1 I thought you should know about it. I believe the same thing happens with BP 1.5.7
