Note: We assume you’ve already installed and activated LoginPress on your site. If not, see our guide on How to Install And Activate LoginPress (Free).

We're pleased to announce that you can use LoginPress with BuddyPress to customize user-friendly Log In, Register, and Lost Your Password pages.

In this knowledgebase article, we'll show you how LoginPress works well with the Log In and Lost Your Password form in BuddyPress powered site and how to redirect the default BuddyPress Register page to the default LoginPress Register page.

Let’s get started!

The Default BuddyPress Register Page

BuddyPress allows you to create a site where members can register to create user profiles, have private conversations, make social connections, create and interact in groups, and much more. 

Note: Here, we assume you already have a BuddyPress powered website.

BuddyPress uses the standard WordPress Log In and Lost Your Password pages. However, it incorporates its own registration page with distinct registration fields.

When you customize the default WordPress Login, Lost Your Password, and Register pages using LoginPress, the changes will affect only the Login and Lost Your Password pages. 

The registration page will remain the same.

Redirect the Default BuddyPress Register Page to LoginPress’s Register Page

You can easily redirect the default BuddyPress registration page to LoginPress’s registration page. You only need to copy and paste the code in the theme’s functions.php file.

Note: It’s recommended to use a child theme to edit the functions.php file instead of the parent theme. There are chances to lose the modified code when you update your theme. It might cause some adverse effects on your website.

Here is the code for you:

// Disable the Register URL for the BudyPress.
remove_filter( 'register_url', 'bp_get_signup_page' );

// Remove the redirect to the register page of BuddyPress. 
remove_action( 'bp_init', 'bp_core_wpsignup_redirect' );

// Disable BuddyPress registration form
add_filter('bp_get_signup_allowed', '__return_false');

// Enable default WordPress registration form
add_filter('bp_get_signup_page', 'use_default_wp_register_form');

function use_default_wp_register_form( $signup_page ) {
    return wp_registration_url();
}

Now, click the Register button on the Login form, and you'll be taken to the LoginPress Register form.
