I have configured a new Register page using ERForms. I've created just a wordpress page which has only a shortcode to the ERform. I've set it at buddypress settings-> Pages -> register. Buddypress is redirecting to the wordpress regitration page instead of my page.
I've also changed the redirection at buddypress setting to whatever page (for example my FAQ page) and always redirects to the wordpress registration page.

Hi @luixv

Thanks for you report. What you describe is a need for specific customization rather than a bug. So I'm going to close this ticket and advise you to ask for help there:

Page association into the BuddyPress settings is the way we use to intercept WordPress pages you want to use for displaying BuddyPress content, but we're not using the potential content you put in these pages using the WordPress editor, we replace it with BuddyPress generated content using specific templates from your theme

You can try to edit/add the buddypress/members/register.php template file of your theme so that is uses <?php do_shortcode( '[yourshortcode]' ); ?>

Here's something I've tested to try to satisfy your need, but I can't guarantee it's working for your very specific setup:
