Hi @vapvarun

Technically they are directory pages in the sense BuddyPress has always created WordPress Pages for them: it's easier this way to customize slug and title I believe.

In BP 11.0, you'll see you can use the activate or register page in menus:

Still in BP 11.0, you'll find them into the list of BuddyPress pages as well:

To preserve the pre-12.0 possibility to customize these specific pages slugs and titles, we absolutely need to include them into the URLs settings tab.

If it's a semantic issue, we can always rename the corresponding Accordion panels like "Specific pages". But again, technically they are treated like directory pages 😅

My concern was not with the special pages, but rather the labels we have assigned to them.
We can simply label options for them as

Register Title
Register Slug

Activate Title
Activate Title

We can also choose to keep it straightforward, such as:

Using the prefix "Directory" could cause confusion.

Ok that's a semantic issue then, I'm fine with this idea as it will improve user experience compare to the pre-12.0 situation.

I also believe we should consider removing possibility to include the Activate page inside WordPress menus (it could easily bee achieved using a specific custom post_status for this page.
