[Resolved] Disable users activation email
Hi, I’m looking for a way of disabling the need of email activation in the registration process, and I’ve found a plugin (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/bp-disable-activation/ the descripcion says it also automatically logs in the user) and some code (http://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/3443 and #2 in http://wpmu.org/6-buddypress-power-hacks-you-dont-want-to-miss/) but I’m afraid to use those because they are really old.
Is there an alternate/new way to do this?
I want this because the activation email seems to work ok only for gmail accounts and the hotmail accounts do not receive the email (I have tried the mail plugins suggested in the codex). But I also would like to make the registration process shorter and super simple to my potential users.
If the sent email can not be removed, maybe replacing the activation key with a welcoming message.
I know that if I do this, the site would be vulnerable to sploggers but I have seen there are safety plugins for this such as wangward.
