    Hello,
    i installed buddypress and realized that it changes the registration process. My question is:
    Do i have to protect the (front-end) registration page of buddypress too, or is the back-end protection of the login-form enough? Can you clear that out, maybe also in documentation?
    Thanks a lot!

    Hi @dater,

    Sorry about the lack of documentation, and thank you for the infomation about the change of registration process of BuddyPress. I never noticed it.

    Do i have to protect the (front-end) registration page of buddypress too, or is the back-end protection of the login-form enough?

    You can choose either.

    Please follow the instruction as below.

    1. In case of enabling “Block by country” at “Login form” in “Back-end target settings” section.

    Block by country at Login from

    In this case, the request to the registration page/process of BuddyPress can also be blocked by country.

    2. In case of disabling “Block by country” at “Login form“, please enable “Block by country” at “Public facing pages” and at least specify “Register” page at “Validation target” in “Front-end target settings” section.

    Public facing page

    This also can block the requests to the registration page/process of BuddyPress.

    I confirmed the above the latest BuddyPress 4.0.0 based on the documentation at Register and Activation Pages.

    You can configure both 1 and 2, but internally, 1 always takes precedence over 2.

    I’ll add those things into the docs.

    Once I close this topic, but please feel free to ask something about your concern.

    Thanks!
