Blogs MU Join button problem

It appears BlogsMu is not compatible with Membership plugin in that it cannot link "Join Our Community Now..." button to my newly created membership page. Can I create a redirection to my registration page? In Membership/Edit Options it says "This is the page a new user will be redirected to when they want to register on your site." But it does not redirect to the page I select.

If I am able to make this work great, if not my second option is if someone can tell me how to remove the link to this button. I can always replace the text "Join Our Community Now..." to something else as long as I can remove the link.

Please let me know if nothing else will work how to remove this button.

Help appreciated
