How can I bypass my extended profiles buddypress registration

I want to encourage members to fill in all kinds of information under profiles but I don't want that as their registration requirement. How can I choose different forms to have them fill out upon registration and then just encourage with a progress bar on their profile to encourage later to fill in all fields?

Registering with Facebook keeps giving an error message for me and not working.

    Hey there.

    BuddyPress just hooks in and includes it all, there isn't a way to in settings.

    Perhaps you could find the hook which adds them then write a little code to unregister them.

    I did do a quick look for plugins but couldn't find anything, unless I missed it.

    Another option would be a custom signup form with something like Gravity or Formidable.

    Gravity Forms:

    Formidable Pro

    Take care.
