I am trying to determine the best process for signing up new Members to our site...
In another thread I was asking about captcha for the signup forms = https://premium.wpmudev.org/forums/topic/im-currently-using-membership-and-for-all-intents-and-purposes-it-seems-to-be-what-i-need
In this tread, @jack kitterhing stated...
'my followup questions have not been addressed there so I'm re-introducing my questions here'
By default Membership doesn't support Captcha or similar, but as you are using BuddyPress, it uses that signup form and that means it can use the captcha plugins designed for BuddyPress :slight_smile:
In your Membership Manual it says this...
which contradicts what @jack was saying so I'm left a little confused...
Why are my users no in the user panel, but show in the Network
Chances are you also have BuddyPress running and your members are signing up through
the BuddyPress registration forms this will create them a account with your network.
Disable your BuddyPress forms and let your users signup through the Membership forms
instead they will then get a role within the site on your network they are signing up through.
So my question is: Can I activate and use the buddypress registration and activation forms or do I refrain from using them completely.
If I refrain from using them completely, what forms of security or captcha do I use with the Membership forms...
