bbPress Shortcodes appear to request new WordPress registration
Hi – I have a WordPress site that has been operational for 5 years.
I wanted to add a Discussion Forum using bbPress, and I have been successful in installing the bbPress plug-in.
Using the bbPress Shortcode Codex, I wanted to create a requirement for people to log into my new Discussion Forum using
[bbp-register] – Display the register screen.
[bbp-lost-pass] – Display the lost password screen.
However, when I test these two options, it appears that these two options actually create a new WordPress account – with no connection to my existing WordPress site at all. When I test the Register facility, a new page opens with the WordPress create account box (create username and password).
What is wrong with the Shortcode usage, please?
WordPress 5.4.1 running Enterprise theme.
bbPress Version 2.6.5
