Activation Email

  • justmattb


    The email that gets sent out with the original activation just doesn’t seem to be affected by this plugin. All other emails that go out are fine, but no matter what I do, I just get the standard WordPress activation email sent. Am I missing something?

    I am having a similar problem. The activation email sent is NOT the custimized email that I created. It appears to be the standard WP email; however, it lacks any activation links. My users are not able to activate!!!


    Can you make your own topic in future please? These two issues may have different causes. You two are using BuddyPress, right? Are you running any translations for BuddyPress on your site?



    Sorry for not making a new topic. I noticed mwbarker posted a month ago w/ a similar problem & hadn’t received a response yet. I thought I was helping him by bumping it up… :-/

    I am using Buddypress 1.5.5, WordPress 3.3.1. Sorry, to seem dense… I’m a bit green to all this… unless you mean something other than literally translating into different languages, I am not.

    An activation email is sent, but it is not customized and contains no activation link.

    Are you using multisite, or have you set the BP_ROOT_BLOG setting anywhere?
    What other plugins are you running?



    Not running multisite nor have I done anything to the BP_ROOT_BLOG setting.

    Plugins are (a bit numerous):

    Ad Codes Widget
    Another WordPress Classifieds Plugin (AWPCP)
    Basic Google Maps Placemarks
    BuddyPress Activity Plus
    BuddyPress Group Email Subscription
    BuddyPress Template Pack
    CD BuddyPress Avatar Bubble
    Custom Login lite
    Dynamic Widgets
    Easy iFrame Loader
    eShop for WordPress
    Favicon Rotator
    Formidable Payment
    Global Hide/Remove Admin Bar Plugin
    Lux Vimeo
    Member Access
    Ninja Pages, Categories, and Tags
    Official StatCounter Plugin
    Online Backup for WordPress
    Portfolio Slideshow Pro
    SI CAPTCHA Anti-Spam
    Sidebar Login
    Simple Google Analytics
    Trackable Social Share Icons
    User Role Editor
    Welcome Pack
    Wordpress Font Uploader
    WP Issuu
    WPMU DEV Update Notifications
    WP Show IDs
    WP Sliding Login | Register Panel
    WP Super Cache

    I had Social Login, too, but deactivated it after reading that others found incompatibility with the two plugins.

    I have discovered that NONE of my emails are showing my customizations. For instance, the “new friend request fro %s” email appears just as plain text.



    So, I’ve made some changes, but still not receiving a link in the activation email. Email arrives, but it’s blank.

    Deactivated: Welcome Pack & Member Access.
    Installed: s2member (discovered certain pages were not being hidden by Member Access).
    Installed: BuddyPress Pending Activation (With this I can now activate or resend an activation email – which comes in an entirely different format than the initial one and contains a working activation link)

    I’d like to use Welcome Pack, but wasn’t sure if it was causing issues.



    Sorry, thought I would get a notification on replies to this thread. I am running BuddyPress – no translation – no multi-site.

    Just to let everyone know I am aware but haven’t looked at this yet.
