I’ve recently started using your theme and I was wondering if you could help me with something.
I’d like to have a different page header for the registration page: https://bandcloud.net/wp-signup.php.
Ideally I’d like to be able to edit the page just like a regular page and use sections as well.
Would it all require using a child theme?
I’d appreciate your guidance.

How are you creating the sign up page? Using a plugin? If so, is it possible to display the sign up box using a shortcode?July 6, 2018 at 9:00 am #617409Adam
Thanks for your prompt reply. I’m using WP multisite and this registration comes I believe from Pro Sites https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/pro-sites plugin. However, I found on their forum someone mentioned that “pro site doesn’t provide its own registration form but its uses internally wordpress default registration process”.
I’m a little confused but I think perhaps it requires creating a custom registration page on a child theme?
Thanks for your help.

Hmm, I’m not familiar with that plugin unfortunately. Have you tried asking their support if it’s possible to add the form to a static page?July 11, 2018 at 9:37 am #621239Adam
This page https://bandcloud.net/wp-signup.php is actually not using Pro Sites plugin as I previously thought. I think it’s just a standard WP page, WP multisite in this case.
When I inspect the page, it says that it uses page-template-default so my question is how I can can use a custom page with a custom page header for the /wp-signup.php page?

I’m not sure it’s possible to make wp-signup.php a static page.
I wonder if it’s possible to create a signup page using a shortcode along with your membership plugin? That way you could use a static page.July 12, 2018 at 12:49 pm #622340Adam
Basically what I need is to have a custom header on this page https://bandcloud.net/wp-signup.php.
Currently I have Big Head selected on my homepage and it’s selected as the static page. I don’t want the Big Head page header the wp-signup.php. When I disable Big Head from the homepage then it solves the problem on the wp-signup.php page but obviously the Big Head is supposed to stay on the homepage.
What the best way to tackle this issue?

So you have a Page Header created and applied to the front page only (in Global Locations, or the static page?), yet it’s displaying on wp-signup.php as well?July 13, 2018 at 9:11 am #622978Adam
Correct. Just to clarify, it’s WP multisite and I’m using your theme on the main domain https://bandcloud.net. I have a static page selected https://ibb.co/nCPRu8 which is what you can see here https://bandcloud.net. This page has Big Head page header selected: https://ibb.co/hchqMo. When I go to register, the same header shows up https://bandcloud.net/wp-signup.php. If I remove it from the homepage it also disappears on the wp-signup.php page.July 13, 2018 at 10:21 am #623042TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
That’s so strange. I assume there’s some sort of bug inside WordPress and wp-signup.php. I can’t even find a conditional where we can target wp-signup.php.
We can hide the header on that page, but I’m not sure we can add a custom one.
The other solution I can think of is being able to create the signup form on a regular static page (not wp-signup.php). Then you could redirect wp-signup.php to the static page, which would have its own header.
