    Ok Joshua, another question for you! Even though this page is public, it won't let non-members visit it now. Any thoughts about how to make this one page public? http://comerecommended.com/community/pricing/

    @heatherhuhman, even though the page is public, the theme and the settings are setup for a private site until someone logs in. One way of allowing prospects of seeing your pricing page is to redirect them to a static page outside of this WordPress installation. This is how it works on the demo page: http://friscotheme.com/demo/join/.

    Hmm...I'm using s2member and it requires that a page on the site be devoted to membership options. There has to be a page where people pick the pricing. Is there perhaps a way to incorporate this information on the main page? Or should I not do the main page this way anymore?

    I thought s2Member integrated itself into the WordPress/BuddyPress login and register pages. I would see if s2Member has a shortcode or somewhat of embedding that info that can either go on the BuddyPress register page or into the functions-custom.php file.

    @joshua - One final thought...what if I uninstalled s2member (especially since you have very effectively locked down my site to non-members!) and then had a way to approve new users before they could gain access to the site? I've been researching this...but I can't seem to find a good way to do it. Would the best approach be to hire a plugin developer? Or is there another way?

    @heatherhuhman, before offering a suggestion, question for you; are you only using s2member to offer free membership?

    @joshua - Excellent question. Right now, s2member is being used to offer paid membership, but this community really won't have that many members...so I've decided it's ok to bill them separately. BUT I'd need a way to moderate in case someone happened along the site. Without boring you with the details, this is a really specialized community for a select group of my public relations clients.

    @heatherhuhman, ok I'm going to tell you how I've done it. Along with the Frisco theme, I use this plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/membership/

    I offer different payment levels and use shortcodes to hide content that the users should not see until they subscribe for a membership option. This way, it is automatic, and I don't have to worry about any type of manual process.

    If you are still looking for a manual process, then I would use this plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-invoice/ for invoicing your clients and this BuddyPress plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/bp-registration-options/ for moderating new users. Now, the BuddyPress plugin as is, does not work well with BP 1.5.x, but you can get it to work by using the suggestions from this thread: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-buddypress-registration-options-how-to-fix-bp-registration-options-so-it-works-with-buddypress-15?replies=16

    @joshua - Just wanted to let you know that I was actually able to find a plugin that works well: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/confirm-user-registration/

    Great, I will keep that plugin on my radar.

    Hey Joshua, I have a question. I used your theme to create a private community, used the custom css, bp-custom, functions-custom etc. Everything works great. How do I

    1- Add an "Remember me" option under the login form
    2- Option to reset password
    3- Also, when user enters the wrong password, he gets redirected to the wp-login.php page. I would definitely want this page blocked. Are there ways to prevent users from going to this page?

    By the way, great theme.

    Just so there is not confusion, if I haven't mentioned this before, this is not my theme, but I work with it on several projects. I want to make this clear so credit is given to the right person.

    @ekihc, I believe the remember me function is already in the code(functions-custom.php). What is keeping it from appearing is the paragraph tags. Delete those and it should appear. Also you might what to change that code a little bit as well as add another piece of php code. See below:

    PHP code addition:
    $rememberme = !empty($_POST['rememberme']);

    HTML/PHP code change in the form:
    <label for="rememberme"><input name="rememberme" type="checkbox" id="rememberme" value="forever" tabindex="90"<?php checked( $rememberme ); ?> /> <?php esc_attr_e('Remember Me', 'buddypress'); ?></label>

    The other stuff should also be pretty easy to do. At the moment I am a little tired to give a cohesive answer. If no one beats me to it, I will provide some more answers tomorrow.

    I appreciate the time and help. Just trying to reach out to folks that obviously know more than I do :) I did remove the paragraph tags as you mentioned, and I now see the "remember me" option on the page (thanks for that). Not sure if I understand the code additions and changes you mentioned. Could you explain the reason for the code change? Looking forward to hearing back from you (or anyone else that can help me out) in regards to the 2nd and 3rd points.

    2- Option to reset password
    3- Also, when user enters the wrong password, he gets redirected to the wp-login.php page. I would definitely want this page blocked. Are there ways to prevent users from going to this page?

    Hey Joshua, any help with this would be most appreciated. Our site launch is next week. And I'm stuck on these issues.

    Hello everyone,

    what would be the best method for this situation:

    a similar-themed "landing page" as which is discussed here, with the log-in up top and the registration down below... but instead of the registration down-below I need to insert a sort of "Contact form" which serves as an APPLICATION for membership, as our site is only for accepted applicants.

    I have a page which uses a contact form 7 contact form, which serves as my application, but now I need to insert the pretty yellow box which is also displayed on the frisco demo theme above this contact form...

    Thanks for the help!

    come with me always
    Forbidden

    You don't have permission to access /join on this server.

    I think I understand what I need, but I am not sure how to do it. Joshua Parker said:

    "If "join" is not the slug to your BuddyPress registration page, then you need to update it. Also, for those of you who are not using multisite, bp-custom.php should be installed in the plugins folder and I would suggest renaming bp-custom.php to something like bp-custom.php and make sure to add the usually plugin header:"

    I don't know how to make join my slug. Is slug like a permalink. I am completely new to WP so any help is appreciated. Also, not sure what Multisite is.

    Thank you
    Chris Perkins

    @crp2100, if you created a registration page in the backend, then open that page as if you were going to edit it. It you don't see the slug panel, then click on the screen options top located in the upper right corner of that page, select slug, and you should now see the slug that you need to copy and paste.

    Thank you Joshua. It is working now!

    If you could help me take it step further I would much appreciate it.
    What I want it to do is go directly to a login page, then just have alink to the create an account if it is a new user, this would lead to a seperate account page.

    Hope this makes sense and I'm not sounding too dumb for asking these questions.

    Thank you
