I have a lot of problems with BuddyPress user registration in general. It seems:
- no emails are sent to the user for activation
- there is no “forgot password” feature
- there is no ability to (re)send the user an activation link, either from the user or the admin’s area.
On the emails, when I create a new user or blog via the admin area, I get a notification email, so it’s not a setup issue with the mailserver. The server is my localdomain/localhost dev box anyway. No webhost involved.
Ugh this may seem a small part of BP % wise but it seems without these features it’s really not usable. What is the deal? Can this fundamental stuff really be missing/so buggy?? It’s hard to believe.
