Activation page?

    Total newby question here, but I think it’s a good one. What is the Activation page for if the Registration page takes care of registering a new member? Intuitively I was expecting an activation code to be sent to the email address I used to register as a member, to then be entered into the Activation page. Does the Activation page require a plugin for this functionality? Or is the Activation page used for when you create a Forum? Out of the box install, I don’t get what this Activation page is for or how to use it?

    The activation page is used to activate a member’s account manually (as an alternative to automatic activation after clicking the link sent in the activation email).

    Both the member and site admin are able to enter the activation key manually. Useful if the member is having problems receiving the activation email.

    Hope this helps

    Ok got it. I went through the process again but this time copied the code and entered that into the Activation page, it worked. I see the difference, I just didn’t notice it before because the link was working so well—so it’s more like a backup as you say. Thanks Henry.
