BuddyPress Registration Options

The BuddyPress Registration Options plugin allows the site administrator to enable the user moderation for new members. Also, helps them create a private network. When enabled, the site administrator will have to approve the new members for them to access the BuddyPress and bbPress components of the website.

The plugin also lets you customize the user prompt messages to tailor them to the requirements of your website.

The integration works and requires the BuddyBoss Platform installed and activated on your website.

BuddyBoss Platform is a fork and forge of the BuddyPress plugin and bbPress plugin. Any plugin developed for the BuddyPress and bbPress plugin is supported by the BuddyBoss Platform.

You do NOT need to install the BuddyPress plugin or the bbPress plugin separately. BuddyBoss Platform acts as a replacement for both the plugins.
