Adding users via admin is not creating the users as ‘buddypress users’

  • Janet


    Hi. I recently created a site using BuddyPress and when I added users via the WordPress admin, it sent them an activation email and it all worked well. However, I’ve just set up a new site and when I try to do the same thing, it’s adding them as a standard WordPress user, (the email it sends to the new user is:
    Username: user
    To set your password, visit the following address:…

    Whereas in my other (correct) installation site it sends an email saying:
    You’ve been invited to join ………etc…..
    Please click the following link to activate your user account:
    Both are running WordPress 4.9.7, and BuddyPress 3.1.0. Both sites have all the relevant plugins, both have BuddyPress installed etc, so I don’t understand why it’s not creating the new users as ‘BuddyPress users’ in the 2nd site. The only difference I can tell between the sites is that one is a MultiSite and the other is standalone. Both sites are running on the same server/url (seperate subdomains)
    Happy to provide more info if needed, but I’m hoping it’s a simple option that I haven’t selected somewhere?! Thanks!!
