Registration email not being sent
I’m doing some development and today got onto trying to register a few dummy accounts to play with but the activation email is not being sent from either the default theme, my own theme or Twenty Ten
I’ve searched and found all sorts of explanations and suggestions to use a plugin to change to SMPT but I think this is going in the wrong direction. If I write my own script and send mail via PHPs mail() function it works. If I go to the WordPress default login and click “Lost your password?” and put in an email address from an unconfirmed account I receive an email on that account and when I click the reset link in that email I can then login.
PHP mail() works on my system.
The default WordPress forgot password form sends email.
The registration form on Buddypress default theme does not send email.
The WordPress “Lost your password?” has <form action="url_to_site/wp-login.php?action=lostpassword …
The Buddypress forms are <form action =" " … Interestingly though if you click "Complete sign up" the form is validated and you are taken to a confirmation page where you can upload an avatar.
This sounds like a bug, swins like a bug, smells like a bug. Anyone know what it is, where it is and how I might squash it? I’ve been looking half the day and am posting here in the hope that someone has already found the blighter.
