    Anyone, please?
    This is a good way of preventing people from inserting their email addresses wrongly and also to prevent them of sending us emails on why they didn’t receive the activation email…

    This isn’t possible without adding some custom code and I’m not aware of a plugin that does this.

    Thanks @henrywright,

    I really didn’t want to mess with bp files, but more plugins is out of the question. And I don’t think there is any either way.

    Hey @henrywright,
    I have to add a few fields as well, and I get it that it’s strict code, but I just need the FILE (location and name) that the registration FORM is located in.

    I cannot seem to find the darn file with the REGISTRATION FORM?

    Thanks for the help!

    I’m curious if anyone has any additional guidance on this — I have an on-staff developer who could enact this if anyone can suggest how.

    We get a frustratingly large number of registrations for emails like reddysmith@gmial.com and laurabrown@yaho.com … it’d save a lot of hassle to force email confirmation on registration.

    I understand that this plugin used to add the function, but is outdated and no longer works:

    What @arielmeadow is suggesting is exactly what I’m looking for. People insert the wrong email address and then email us on why didn’t they receive an activation key. One time or another it’s fine, but we get a lot of registrations and it’s just a really useful feature.

    @monicajay:
    You can easily add one more profile field as “confirm email” from dashboard->users->Profile Fields.
    You don’t need to mess with bp files.
    For validation, you just need to add few lines of code to match email ID using javascript(for client side validation). It doesn’t need high level of coding skill.

    @dhyana:
    Don’t add fields directly in the core file, Buddypress provides you option page to add fields here. dashboard->users->Profile Fields
    FYI registration file is located at –
    /wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-templates/bp-legacy/buddypress/members/register.php
