Will BuddyPress 2.0 fix this problem?

    Invalid Activation Key” error message
    after the user clicks the link in the account activation email?

    I have been struggling now for almost a month and can’t resolve this issue (even when no other plugin is installed except BuddyPress).

    I am wondering if I should just wait for BP 2.0 version to fix it?

    Thank you for your help.

    Hard to say in your specific case, but we have revamped the sign-up and activation processes to be a bit more straight-forward, code wise. Give the beta a spin, and let us know how it works for you.

    Thank you for taking time to answer my question. I know you are very busy with steering ahead BP 2.0.

    Q: Can we have the option to ‘disable’ sending activation email in BP 2.0 ?

    It will be so helpful to just disable sending activation email if the “Invalid Activation Key” problem still persists.

    Thank you again.

    I would totally not recommend to disable it. You should spend more time to figure the problem out. In my BuddyPress test installations (local and live), it sends the emails just fine, so there is a problem, maybe in your server, template, I don’t know, somewhere.

    But, if you really wanna disable this, after a quick search here and in Google, I found some possible solutions.

    Obs.: I haven’t tested it, so use it at your own risk.

    @espellcaste I agree that we should not disable it.

    But since it is holding us moving ahead since people can’t use site, so I think at least an option to disable sending the activation email (i.e. bypassing activation) will be good while people are trying to resolve this issue.

    Also it will help let people use the site. Currently people just give up after seeing the “Invalid Activation Key” message and don’t return back to the site.

    Thank for your suggestions. Really appreciated.

    I agree. I just think you will see an increase in spam registrations.

    I do have the google captcha implemented on the registration form so that will help at least to make sure it is humans registering.

    Thank you.
