 Priority:  normal       |    Version:  1.6.1

 Severity:  normal       |  2nd-opinion
 After updating to BuddyPress 1.6.1 (BP is on a secondary site on a sub
 directory 2 site network), the WordPresss 'Register' link redirects to
 BuddyPress and not the the WP registration page.  I updated BP from 1.5.6.
 WordPress is 3.4.1.

 To try to find out what was happening, I installed two test sites on my
 server, both with virgin instals of WordPress and  BP. I did not instal
 any additional plugins so the sites are running standard basic instals.
 Both sites are running WP 3.4.1. On one site I installed BP 1.6.1 and the
 other BP 1.5.6. (Permalinks are set to Numeric). The result you can see
 from these links:


 The first site (test) has BP 1.6.1, the second (test2) has BP 1.5.6 The
 sub directory were BP is active is called 'now' in both cases. If you
 follow the links above and then click 'Register' (under Meta) you will
 find that with the first site (test), the 'Register' link will redirect to
 http://sannyasnews.org/test/now/blogs/create/ whereas the second site
 (test2) will behave correctly and redirect to http://sannyasnews.org/test2

 It is possible that this is a bug with WordPress but as it only manifested
 when I installed BP 1.6.1  I thought you should know about it. I believe
 the same thing happens with BP 1.5.7
