in the "manuals" section of mpmudev the buddypress tutorials describes how there are two different registration pages for buddypress and WP multisite, which are "http://yourdomain.com/register" and "http://yourdomain.com/wp-signup.php" respectively.
on my local test site (using MAMP) not logged in to the site, when i enter the "/wp-signup.php" it resorts to the "register" page where there is basically the entire sign up for a new site.
is this normal ?
would this also register people for all the buddypress features/components ?
i feel i am missing something and can't put all the pieces together in my head.
any kind assistance in this would be greatly appreciated.
