    How can I tell if my users have completed the registration and activation process? I currently have 22 members of my site, but the BuddyPress Recently Active Member widget is only displaying 12 members. Does this mean the other 10 haven’t completed the registration/activation process or that they simply haven’t taken any actions in BuddyPress since completing the process?

    If they do not show in the members list then they have not activated and logged in yet.

    Is there a way to eliminate the requirement for a user to activate their account?…or for me to activate their account for them?

    I am using the BuddyPress Registration Options plugin and this already allows me to review and approve or deny pending user accounts, so the activation process is kind of redundant.

    Thanks much

    @jakewho you can allow them to automatcally login after registration which will set their status as “active”, allowing them to show up in the widget. If they complete activation but don’t login afterwards then they are not acounted as active until having logged in.

    There is a plugin to automatically log users in after registration. You can find one on Buddydev and you can also google for it. I dont have it off the top of my head.

    Thanks so much @kizzywizzy the Buddydev auto login plugin worked great.

    One other question; now is there a way for me to go and activate the 10 users who signed up for my site before I had installed the auto activate plugin?

    Thanks again!

    @jakewho yes but it involves the database. Are you comfortable with editing the database?
