How can I get the form to register a new domain to appear on a separate page?

Hi

I have pro sites installed and am trying to charge people to create subdomains containing marketpress to sell their products in a store they pay a monthly fee to have.

Having never done this before, I'm having the problem that the registration form for a new site is simply appearing at the bottom of my usual free membership registration page at Link removed at members request

There is no indication there of why they would register a new site (ie. to have their own store) or that they have to pay. Also, I would have prefered it if the registration form for having their own store/subdomain was on a completely separate page, for navigation and marketing purposes. I just don't think it belongs mish mashed in with the free registrations page.

Having just spoken to Vladislav on online chat, he says this will need some custom coding. This seems a bit strange to me, as I assumed this would be a form in its own right, on its own page, but basically I don't know where to start with this and don't want to/can't afford to pay someone to set something so basic up for me.

Can someone give me a clue as to where to begin with this please? I need to get this form on its own page with some text to explain what it's all for basically.

Thanks

Sally

    Hi there Sally,

    Hope you're well today and thanks for your question.

    How it's currently displaying is standard functionality when you have BuddyPress installed.

    Currently this would either require extensive custom coding to change, or you could use a plugin like Gravity Forms.

    Thanks!

    Kind Regards
    Jack.

    Hi @Jack Kitterhing

    Do you know of any free alternatives to gravity forms? Whatever that plugin does looks like it charges to do it...

    If moving the form to another page is too difficult, how can I just edit the text;

    Site Title (required)

    No

    To something more like;

    Hi @Jack Kitterhing

    That text change worked, yes thank you :slight_smile:

    Thanks for sending the correct site creation link to me, have emailed you back with the following;

    A couple of things, when not logged in, I get a 404 not found on that link.. should this be the case?

    Also, I can’t seem to find where to edit that page, had a look in the buddypress files but can’t seem to find any matching text. Could you give me a hint again please? (sorry!)

    Thanks
