I'm testing Wordpress + bbPress (both latest versions):


When I press Register it sends me to Wordpress' backend login page (I'm no longer in the site).

If I click the Registration User page, and fill my username and email it sends me to Worpdpress' backend login page again and it says: ERROR: The password field is empty.

Is there a way of letting the user just sign up while being on the site?
