BP-Social 'Sign Up' button and 'Search'

I’ve decided to convert bestagentblogs.com over to the BP-Social theme. It looks great, but I have a couple of niggling issues:

While the text ‘Sign-up for Free’ works, the green ‘Sign Up’ button after the ‘Already a member?’ fields seems to link to the primary domain rather than any sign-up page. How is is supposed to work? Will it try to Sign a user up with the username and password a user enters?

The other issue is the ‘Search’ widget that doesn’t appear to be optional. It doesn’t find anything. I was using a custom google search for the site, and that still works. What do I need to do to get the default search working though?

    hi Christofire

    that’s coz the ‘sign-up for free’ are assuming already edited by you on theme option -> wlecome text right?…where does the register/signup you want to point to?

    the default signup page are


    but still you can open top-header.php and edit the form line 48+

    < input type="button" name="signup-submit" id="signup-submit" value="<?php _e( 'Sign Up', 'bp-social' ) ?>" onclick=" location.href='http://inputyoursite-register here' " />

    @search function

    the wordpress search widget are working fine in my end.

    did you used the appearence -> widget -> search from wordpress widget?

    I probably jacked-up the default handling when I followed advice to rename my register page to limit auto-splogging. I’ll try to retrace my steps and return it to the default setup.

    Can I use these buttons with the Anti-Splog plugin feature that “moves” the registration page? That would be ideal.

    RE: the search button, I’m not actually using ANY widget for it. With nothing in the widget section, the standard (non-working) search box appears. If I ad a search widget, BOTH widgets will appear.

    It seams the GoogleCSE plugin is incompatible with the standard search on this blog. Once disabled, the wordpress search works fine.

    Is there a way to integrate a site-wide search into the standard widget included with this theme, or do I need to add both search widgets?

    This is driving me nuts… I want to try to use the Anti-Splog plugin with this theme. I’ve determined that the sploggers are coming either through the BuddyPress registration or BBpress — and NOT from the WPMU registration. So, I would like to disable BP and BBPress registrations and use the re-name wp-signup feature of the Anti-Splog plugin.

    My problem is that I don’t know php well enough to replace

    Sign-up for free »` link


    <?php ust_wpsignup_url(); ?>

    for the both the text link and the ‘Sign Up’ button. Can anyone help?

    where does the function ust_wpsignup_url() called from..is it from plugins

    or your own custom function?

    actually if you want to redirect to certain url..you can just enter full path like


    wp_redirect( 'http://this-is-my-reg-site.com/register....blah....php' );

    or see if this work


    $custom_redirect = ust_wpsignup_url(); // if there's a get call.....get_ust_wpsignup_url();

    wp_redirect( $custom_redirect );
