Can someone help me figure out the Buddy Press plugin.

I have a magazine Wordpress website created with an open source theme and style and very slight html alterations and customizations.

I've downloaded all the necessary BuddyPress plugins:

BuddyPress Sliding Login Panel

BuddyPress Template Pack**

And it allows me to set/define pages for 'groups, members, and activity' but I cannot figure out how to implement a 'Register' page for people to register as that's the whole point of using the plugin. Now the screen where I "can" select which page to devote to register, no matter which I set it to, it just redirects to my home page. It allows me to create forms for a sign-up/register page, but can't implement it and get it to appear.

Can someone help?

Cheers as always

Have you tried logging out first, then going to the register page?

It won't show if you are logged in

Awesome, now I see it - just wondering why it didn't link in menu. I got thrown off because looking at BP compatibility > Under Navigational links > it states '(registration must be enabled)' – Arnold Jan 7 '12 at 23:03
I, and others, have also been thrown by that in the past, but it makes sense as that page is redundant if logged in.... Please accept the answer if you are happy? – Aces Jan 7 '12 at 23:14
Ah - I see. Now I've done a quick run through on a different email and it's all functional, though I can't find the 'login' page, any idea as where I can get that implemented? – Arnold Jan 7 '12 at 23:19
I don't use the sliding login panel so can't really help on that question. I have a login section in a sidebar which is default behaviour on the bp columns theme. Others have a login link on the buddybar. – Aces Jan 7 '12 at 23:24
Possibly a seperate Quesion - so if you know, I posted another Q here about it: wordpress.stackexchange.com/questions/38197/… – Arnold Jan 7 '12 at 23:25
