How to replace wp register form with gf form.

  1. hey guys i hope someone can help me.

    I have set up a new registration form using gf. But how do i replace the existing wp registration form with gf? i have tried to put the short code in the register page but this doesn't replace it. It shows the wp registration form.

    Under Forms -> Settings -> User Registration, there is a check box for Enable Custom User Registration page. Checking this, and selecting the page where you have your user Registration form, will make it so that it is the new default registration page.

    When I click Register at the top of the site, I'm brought to:
    http://cre8tiveshock.com/register/

    Which has a custom registration form on it.

    I had to turn off the Buddy Press link to that page to stop it from being the BP registration page in BP's settings.
