  • I had to add this module to my WP 2.9.2 setup (I’m not using WPMU) to get the user activation emails to work

    After configuring this module, things worked like a charm.

    I kinda feel stupid for starting this forum topic- but the fact is I’m very new to WordPress and Buddypress.

    Since there was this “famous 5 min install” mentioned all over the website, I figure it would take me max 10 mins to get up and running with buddypress.

    Since there was no mention of Configuring SMTP, I didn’t realize that it is a mandatory step in getting Buddypress working.

    It would be nice if the Buddypress install guide can have steps for those who are not familiar with wordpress.

    I have just installed buddypress on a production site and created a few groups on it. Now a member had an issue with the group name so I had to change the name. But the URL group-slug is still the old name.

    I would really like the slug to reflect the new name.

    I can go into phpmyadmin and change it from the DB tables. I noticed wp_bb_forums and wp_bp_groups has the slug. Is there anywhere else where I should go and change the slug value?

    Thanks for creating such a cool software!

    I’ve tried everything I can think of.. still no registration emails are appearing.

    How do I proceed?

    Any suggestions are welcome

    I am not a PHP guru- but am just wondering, without PHP mail knowing which servers to use for sending email from, how does the user activation email get sent?

    Maybe I’m missing something basic here at my end.. But I’m just trying to understand how this email activation feature works.

    How is the sending of email configured? I don’t recall configuring any SMTP server during my installation to let wordpress or buddypress know which accounts to send emails from?

    I was using BP 1.2.1 for the past few weeks- so am confused how this new feature works?

    I saw a reply elsewhere which said the admin can activate users even if they have not clicked on the activation link in their email. But I did not see any “activate” user option in the admin console.

    Any help is appreciated.

    hi r-a-y,

    you were spot on with your analysis. I had spent 4 hours today trying to figure out what could be wrong here. It would be nice if the documentation mentioned that if you are setting up buddypress to make sure NOT TO call the wordpress folder “groups”.

    Hopefully anyone else who might venture naming their setup “groups” will avoid wasting a ton of time by reading this little FAQ.



    my bad..

    am new to wordpress and didn’t see the setting for “allow anyone to register”

    I am also not able to see the “create group” button. Also, when I click on the “groups” tab in my buddypress setup I am not able to get the groups directory- instead I get a “page not found” error (not a 404 but a buddypress formatted page not found).

    How can I enable the “groups” page and the “create group” button?
