Hello Mahi,
Did you ever make any progress with this problem. I have managed to get my registration form to work except for the date field. I managed to get the date to save to Buddypress and display in the profile but it doesn’t work in the profile search when a user searches for members by age range. So it seems similar to the visibility issue I was having before.
If the user goes into his/her profile and resaves the information then it works. Can you explain why information is showing up in the profile but doesn’t seem to be saved to the databases? Any function I can run to resave user profile information?
Thanks for your help!

Hello Tareq
You helped me by sending a piece of code for my function.php file in my child theme which sets my new user verification status to 2 or “not activated”.
I thought that this was working but discovered that the new members are not being counted. When I click the Member page link, the number of members is not accurate. I can see new members but they are not being counted correctly.

I checked with BP Registration Options which is the approval plugin that I am using. The support team tells me that there are two values that need to be set. The first is user_status which they recommend setting a value in the DB to “69”. They also set a “hide_sitewide” field to 1 or true, in the bp_activity table.
Upon approval of a new users both values are set to 0 and the members are active.

Any idea why my members are not being counted? When I get rid of your function and use the BP default registration the member count works.

Thanks for your support.

OK thanks. Do you still need to use my site for testing. Because I usually have it in maintenance mode and would prefer to not have it public while I am building it. Just let me know.
Also, as I mentioned the Meta Key controls the visibility of the site along with the Meta Values, so perhaps this is the issue. I would just need to know what to set for these values.

OK thanks.
I did manage to access the database using PHPMyAdmin and see that the Meta Key refers to two values: default_visibility and allow_custom_visibility. Perhaps these Meta Key values are what was missing?
Thanks for taking a look.

Hi Mahi,
This simply isn’t working. I think the problem with BP Integration Add On is that it is not really integrating with Buddypress. The plugin uses WP verification when the user clicks the Register button and the Meta Key fields don’t match correctly with Buddypress fields. The only fields that are working are the WordPress fields. All Buddypress fields are not integrating. The data is passed through to Buddypress but not saved to the database.

I would like some serious help with this or I would like to ask for my money back.

A couple of questions to try and solve this:
1. If I am using WPUF Buddypress Integration Add On to create a custom Registration form for users to register, do I have to make users update their profile from the Buddypress Integration Add On Edit Profile page? When users now update using the Buddypress Edit Profile tab on their profile it is creating the above conflict.
2. Do the meta tags in the BP Integration Add On have to exactly match the BP user registration fields? And if so how to I find out what the BP fields are called?

I have done more testing on this and am getting some strange results. When a new user creates a new profile the profile field data that is saved seems to be getting created in a separate db. Profile field data that should be visible in the Profile tab is not. When the user goes back to update their profile and then save it the field data changes and is then availalbe in the view profile tab.
The same thing happens for my dating matching function. When users create new profiles their data works with users that have also created new profiles. But as soon as one of them updates their profile the matching function no longer works. Only users that have updated their profiles can be matched against other users that have also updated their profiles.
So it appears that the registration form using BP Integration Add On is somehow saving duplicate data or using a separate db?
Any solution for this?

Thanks Tareq,
That does work. New users now receive the Activate Your Account email and must validate by clicking the link or they cannot use the site.
The only difference now is that the user is receiving 2 emails. The subject line of the first is “Your username and password” and the second one is “Activate Your Account”.
The Buddypress default registration only sends the “Activate Your Account” mail. Any explanation why this is happening and if I can get the “Your Username and Password” mail to not send or edit it to not include a link or be a simple greeting.
Thanks again for helping me with this. Especially on a Sunday!

If you would like to see for yourself you can go to my site and fill out the two different registration forms and you will see that you receive two different types of verification emails.

WPUF Registration Form Using Buddypress Integration Add On:

Default Buddypress Registration Form:

The second one is correct for Buddypress and is what I am trying to get my custom form to generate.

Thanks Tareq,
I’m using the WPUF Pro along with the Buddypress Integration Add On, so the registration page that I create should send the Buddypress verification email and not the WordPress verification email. I think this is the confusion.
When I test the default Buddypress registration page a verification email is sent to the new user with a link which they click to verify their email. The WordPress registration process sends a password and login email.
So your Buddypress Integration Add On should accommodate for this difference or I was hoping that you could help me write a quick function to drop into my child theme functions.php to remedy the problem for buddypress users.

I located the problem at frontend-form-profile.php line 226:

// send user notification
                if ( class_exists( 'Theme_My_Login_Custom_Email') ) {
                    do_action( 'tml_new_user_registered', $user_id, $password );
                } else {
                    wp_new_user_notification( $user_id, $password );

wp_new_user_notification is not the correct function for sending out a verification email. According to the Codex this function is used to “notify the blog admin of a new user, normally via email and also send an email with login/password to the new user.” What the new user should receive is a mail with a link that verifies the email address and brings them back to the site. I looked for the correct function in the Buddypress registration form but could not find it.

If you don’t mind, please confirm that this support string is being read. I haven’t heard back in 5 days. Thanks.

I tested this today with a new form and can confirm that the WPUF registration upon clicking the Register button should send out a validation email to the new user. Instead it sends a Username and Password reset email.

This issue is fairly critical to my site so please let me know if there is a way of putting the email validation back on the correct path.

In the end this functionality is not critical to me. I am going to hide the Member profile tab so the default visibility of member fields will not be an issue.
However I wanted to point this out to you in case you want to put it on your fix list.
