    Hi. Is it possible to delete the first field that is required by Buddypress registration (login username) before email? Can email be the login username?

    Also, is it possible to change the design of the registration page? Specifically, I am trying to get rid of pink numbers on the left hand side, which are partly covered by the form and do not look good.

    Hi @loveplove,

    1. Unfortunately we don’t know any easy way to remove the username field in BuddyPress registration as it is a mandatory field for user creation. However maybe this link would be a good starting point for you:

    https://premium.wpmudev.org/forums/topic/how-do-i-remove-the-required-username-field-from-registration

    Since this is handled by BuddyPress, we don’t have much control over this issue and can’t help you much more with this. So if you need further assistance with that, we recommend that you contact BuddyPress support:

    https://buddypress.org/support/

    2. If you want to remove the numbers in the register page, here is a CSS snippet that should do the trick:

    .buddypress.register .bp_register #register-page #signup_form .register-section:before {
    	display: none;
    }

    Or if you want, you can also have them displayed over the form instead of under with this CSS snippet:

    .buddypress.register .bp_register #register-page #signup_form .register-section:before {
    	z-index: 1;
    }

    If you need to find out how to add custom CSS to your site, we recommend that you visit this article of our documentation:

    Hope this information helps you.

    Best regards,

    Thank you.

    One other thing, is there a way of making smaller the font of the text which says this field is visible to ALL in the registration form?

    The snippets are showing an error: syntax error, unexpected ‘.’, expecting end of file

    1. To make the font of the privacy settings smaller, here is another CSS snippet that should do the trick:

    #buddypress .field-visibility-settings, #buddypress .field-visibility-settings-notoggle, #buddypress .field-visibility-settings-toggle {
    	font-size: 12px;
    }

    You can modify “12px” as you like to change the size.

    2. I believe you might have pasted the snippet as a PHP snippet instead of a CSS snippet. To paste this snippet, please make sure to go to Appearance > Customize then paste the snippet in the “Additional CSS” panel, as stated in the article I previously linked:

    Adding Custom CSS

    Please keep me updated if it works for you.

    Regards,
