    When people register it forces them to click on the activation link in their email. How do I turn that off?

    I’ve searched over there already. Can’t find anything that can be used to disable that email activation.

    But this is not the right place to ask wpmu questions.

    socialpreneur – This is a forum for asking questions related to Buddypress and this is related to Buddypress. If you don’t know the answer can you please not respond with those types of responses. A bunch of us are all new to this and not sure and it’s a bit frustrating when someone like you post replies like that. Buddypress and MU work hand in hand and therefore people need to know and that is why they are here. We are asking questions because other people are using Buddypress and they might have the answer or a fix for what we are asking. So, that is why it is the right place to ask the question.

    DJPaul, thank you for posting the link to the post on the “BuddyPress” site.

    Previous to BP 1.1, all user registration was dealt with by WordPress, so it’s technically correct to point people towards existing WordPress/MU resources and forums for help.

    Since BP 1.1, however, BP changes the new account confirmation/activation email – because on the standard BP 1.1 signup page, the user can pick their own password. And of course, it’s a security issue if we were to somehow send their (encrypted) password back to them. So BP 1.1 overrides the standard WordPress MU email so it doesn’t include the password text.

    But, the activation link is part of WordPress. Yes, the BuddyPress default theme uses this behaviour too – but it calls the WordPress code.

    Here’s what I’m trying to do…

    I’d like to hook into bp_after_registration_submit_buttons to run a query that will update wp_signups in the database.

    If that function does what i think it does, I would set ‘activated’ to the same as ‘registered’ and set ‘active’ to 1. I’m guessing there’s more involved, like copying the ‘meta’ to wp_usermeta, and also adding their details to wp_users.

    Now here’s the tricky bit: how do I hook into bp_after_registration_submit_buttons?

    And, how do I get _any_ identifying value for the user who’s just registered?
