So I have been able to set up my GF registration form to work with buddypress and the user does get registered.
The only issue that I am having is that normally when someone registers to a BP site, on the activity page it will say "New User has registered - about 1 minute ago". However, when registering with the GF this does not happen.
Is there any workaround for this? Or is this a feature that is simply not supported.
