Re: How to turn Confirm Email Off?

Previous to BP 1.1, all user registration was dealt with by WordPress, so it’s technically correct to point people towards existing WordPress/MU resources and forums for help.

Since BP 1.1, however, BP changes the new account confirmation/activation email – because on the standard BP 1.1 signup page, the user can pick their own password. And of course, it’s a security issue if we were to somehow send their (encrypted) password back to them. So BP 1.1 overrides the standard WordPress MU email so it doesn’t include the password text.

But, the activation link is part of WordPress. Yes, the BuddyPress default theme uses this behaviour too – but it calls the WordPress code.
