Prosite and User signup

Hi,
Firstly, the plugin in question is Prosites but I deactivated it. This is because I don't want prosites to be my custom registration page. Signing up for an account on my main website should be managed by buddypress which already links to the 'register' link on my main site login page - https://acshub.co.uk/login. However, once I activated the prosite plugin so users can sign up for a subdomain on a different page, whenever my users click on 'register' link on my main site login page, it autodirects them to the prosite registration page and overrides my Buddypress registration Page for my main site. I want these two pages to be separate, with the register button on my wordpress login page - https://acshub.co.uk/login - connecting to my buddypress register page - https://acshub.co.uk/register, not to the prosite signup page. I want to direct users to that page separately as I will create a link for it on my main site. If there's anyway that can be done, that'd be great. Plus, would prosite still work if I make changes to my Network settings disabling users from signing up for a site on my registration page. And will the default blog template also work with prosite by showing on the pro-site sign up page the way it shows on my registration page at the moment?

    Hello Andrew,

    However, once I activated the prosite plugin so users can sign up for a subdomain on a different page, whenever my users click on 'register' link on my main site login page, it autodirects them to the prosite registration page and overrides my Buddypress registration Page for my main site.

    That is correct - one activated Pro Site will take over on the registration process. To disable that you will need to untick option "Signup on Checkout Disables WordPress Signup" in Pro Sites settings

    If you do that, BuddyPress will still handle registration page and only registered users will be able to use Pro Sites signup page (visitors will see form to login).

    Plus, would prosite still work if I make changes to my Network settings disabling users from signing up for a site on my registration page.

    Yes, Pro site will work, but your visitors will be not able to signup for new sites before they become users (in case of " Logged in users may register new sites.":wink: - when you use "User accounts may be registered." option then signup for new sites will be disabled and to use Pro Sites levels on site you are creating as super admin you will need change levels manually.

    And will the default blog template also work with prosite by showing on the pro-site sign up page the way it shows on my registration page at the moment?

    Yes, it will - only if you will not disable signup for new sites.

    Let me know if you have more questions.

    kind regards,
    Kasia

    Thanks for that! I later realised this was my mistake and ticked as suggested. However, when I tested the pro-site by creating a test user profile as a subscriber's user type and switching to that account. After logging in, I visited the custom checkout page https://acshub.co.uk/pro-sites I clicked on the sign up button on a particular level, nothing happened on the page. I only have two levels, basic and pro which I have activated through my settings as the network superadmin, and also enabled the stripe payment gateway. Any ideas why?

    Hello Andrew,

    After logging in, I visited the custom checkout page https://acshub.co.uk/pro-sites I clicked on the sign up button on a particular level, nothing happened on the page.

    That might be plugin or theme conflict. Quickest way to check that is to run a quick plugin/theme conflict test as illustrated in getting support manual (flowchart). http://premium.wpmudev.org/manuals/using-wpmu-dev/getting-support/

    I wanted to check your pro site page, but that url https://acshub.co.uk/pro-sites returns 404 error - did you disable Pro Sites? Could you enable it again so I could see that issue live?

    kind regards,
    Kasia
