@Modemlooper: in the WP backend
@pswriter: Pardon me if this is a stupid questiont, as I am new to a lot of this, but why do I need to give them “SuperAdmin” status? Why can’t regular “Admin” status work? All I need is for some people to approve/ban new members (spammers) and maybe patrol the forums/groups.
I’ll do that if needed, but then what does “Admininstrator” do?
The “Mail From” plugin does indeed work. In the Dashboard I had to go to the Settings menu, in there was listed the “Mail From” plugin. The sender email was a nonexistent account, which was the problem. I changed it to an existing account. I just created a new user account in the website, and the activation email was sent out, immediately. And it worked, too.
Apparently it now does work. Although it took a few hours for my activation email to arrive, it did. But, the sender email address wasn’t the admin email (the one listed as the one from which all activation/notification emails are sent from) it was an weird email from BlueHost. mybluehostusername @box###.bluehost.com.
Should I take this up with Blue Host? Or is something else wrong?
OK, I have a BuddyPress install on my website, which is hosted by BlueHost.
I’m using WP ver 3.0 and BP ver 188.8.131.52.
I have searched all over for the solution to the problem apparently addressed in this thread, but the suggested “Mail From” plugin doesn’t work. I just logged out as Admin, and signed up as a regular user. The site told me my registration is complete, pending my reception of the activation email and subsequent clicking on the link contained.
There was a suggestion in this thread, I think, to go to the Options menu and edit the Registration email configuration, I cannot see any way to do that.
