Sending username with activation email

    @pjtna

    Once the user has registered, how do I send the user’s username and password in the email that includes the activation link?

    I want to do this because hyphens are being added to where spaces were when the user subscribed. (e.g. Future Diamond changes to Future-Diamond).

    I am using WordPress 3.4.2 and BuddyPress 1.6.1 and my website is at http://netballscoop.com/

  • Sending any password in an email is a terrible idea. It’s not secure.

    Then just the username in the email would be a good option OR showing the username on the activation page once the activation link in the email has been clicked.

    Edit: I have edited the topic title to say send only username (not username + password) with activation email.

    I am also happy with the username on the activate.php page if editing the email is too hard, so it could look like:

    Your account was activated successfully! You can now log in with the username *INSERT USERNAME* and password you provided when you signed up.

    Please don’t hijack other people’s topics, especially when they are so ancient.

    There is a a way to add the username on the second link down on my post: http://buddypress.org/support/topic/dashes-in-usernames/#post-169926.

    If your issue is about buddypress removing hyphens then it looks like it will be fixed for bp 1.9 due quite soon – See the last post on the first link for more info…
