    One of my new users lost their activation email, is there anyway I can manually through phpmyadmin activate them? Does doing this also add them to the users table?

    Yes in wp_signups table you will find a key. Then go to:

    http://mydomain.com/activate?key=THEKEY

    I’m pretty new to Buddypress and WordPress. Launched my first site today with 95% of the “i can’t find my registration” emails solved by directing them to their spam folders. But beyond that I have three that can’t find their email, say it’s not in their spam folder, and I need to get em in. Opened phpadmin and didn’t see a “wp_signsup” listing. Checked out “wp_users” and found user_activation_key and there’s a list of 30 things and two of them have keys next to them. They’re different keys. How do I know which one to use? And how exactly do I use it. Do I go to the mydomain.com example url above and enter this key and then that gets them in? Or do I give them the key and they do that? Any insights most appreciated.

    I just delete them and tell them to sign on again… seems to be working for me…

    That is, of course, an option, but I’m moving a community over from a site that was in Movable Type and Elgg into a new WordPress / Buddypress system and users are obviously attached to having the same username they had before and that people already know them by.
