    It is WordPress 3.3.2 multisite installed in the root directory. We have a custom theme but based on bp-default without many modifications, certainly not any to the mail functionality except we had tried the Welcome Pack plugin but the activation link did not appear in that email either. This problem has occurred even without any other plugins running but BuddyPress.

    It seems to be a variable that should be created called $activate_url in /bp-core/bp_core_filters.php . Is there a way to add a filter there or somehow create another email to take precedence over this one?

    We’d like to keep email activation but if it doesn’t work we will have to manually re-send emails or disable it? Both seem like bad solutions, such a basic feature should be working without any tweaks to the system.

    Also, we’re using a foreign language version of WordPress and BuddyPress which both have completely translated mo files but the email came in English. Could this be related or another issue?

    I think it is possible the email problem might be due to a hosting problem, we are currently on a Godaddy shared hosting account which has some email restrictions. But i’m still confused as to why there was emails coming before (no emails are going out now) and there was text in the email but just no link.. Would a hosting company remove links from emails like that or ? Strange..

    Haven’t ever used GoDaddy. From what I’ve heard, that hosting is not kosher for BuddyPress nor WP Multisite.

    Buddypress 1.6.1, WordPress 3.4.1. Moved hosting from GoDaddy to rackspace. We have Welcomepack 3.3

    The activation email is still not showing the activation link. Just blank..

    Has anyone been able to get this working? Is %s the best to use?

    I like using this plugin because of the welcome message and this is one of the only plugins that lets you change the default BP messages going out.

    http://buddypress.org/community/groups/welcome-pack/forum/topic/making-links-live-in-html-emails-generated-by-welcome-pack/ – Found this other post related to this topic.

    So is there any possible way to get the activation link to work in the email? Is there some other code we can use to accomplish this purpose? Workaround? I tried the Unconfirmed plugin but it does not fix this issue. Perhaps there is another way (unfortunately without the Welcome Pack) to change the standard Buddypress emails and thus keeping a working activation link?

    I am not much of a programmer but I do know that most everyone needs to change the automatic emails being sent out (activation, friendship request, etc.) for BuddyPress. It should be easy to change this text, add your logo, and even add html. However, I have yet to see a plugin or update which makes this possible. I would love to know if anyone has found a solution for this?

    Paul is very busy so perhaps the other people interested in getting this working can help? Thanks in advance for any and all replies! – Quote: 1+1=3
